GUIGAL COTE ROTIE TURQUE 12
One of E. Guigal's finest single vineyard wines. La Turque is made from 93% Syrah and 7% Viognier. The impressive tannin and high quality of this wine promotes extensive ageing.
"Similar to the La Mouline with its forward, incredibly sexy style, the 2012 Côte Rôtie La Turque (there’s 7% Viognier in the blend) offers a saturated purple color to go with meaty, smoky notes of cassis, cured meats, chocolate and roasted herbs. It’s a big mouthful of a wine, with full-bodied richness and a stacked mid-palate, but it has a seamless, weightless texture, perfectly ripe tannin and a blockbuster finish. I’d happily drink a glass today, but it should be at its finest from 2020-2046."
