2003 E. Guigal Cote Rotie La Turque - 100 pts

E. Guigal is one of the most notable wine producers in the Rhône Valley. It was founded in 1946 by Etienne Guigal in Ampuis, a village near the famous roasted slopes of the Côte Rôtie,with a long history of winegrowing, and today has plots throughout the Rhône. Guigal makes wines from classic Mediterranean varieties like Grenache, Mourvèdre, Viognier and Roussanne, although the focus has always been on Syrah and Côte Rôtie.

The company's sizeable holdings run the length of the valley, encompassing Saint-Joseph, Hermitage, Gigondas, Condrieu and Chateauneuf-du-Pape, making wines in each, as well as a couple of Côte du Rhône wines. However, Guigal's most notable wines – La Landonne, La Turque and La Mouline – are all from Côte Rôtie, and are some of the most sought-after wines in the region. In fact, all three have had 100-point Robert Parker scores for multiple vintages.

Rating 100 RP - A pure aromatic smorgasbord is offered by the 2003 Cote Rotie La Turque, which has an amazing aromatic profile of espresso coffee interwoven with scorched earth, tar, truffle, incense, blackberry, bacon fat, and flowers. Powerful, thick flavors ooze across the palate with a viscous texture, amazing purity, and just enough acidity and tannin to give uplift and precision to this remarkable tour de force in winemaking. Of the 2003s, this is also approachable, but ideally 2-5 years of cellaring would be suggested, and the wine will evolve for at least 30 more years. RP
