E. Guigal Cote Rotie La Turque 2012
Made from Syrah and 7% viognier, this has an intriguingly assertive yet elegant stance. it’s compact, powerful and composed. Very complex, fragrant notes on the nose of orange zest, pepper, cloves and cardamom: It’s all really spicy. On the palate, this is elegant and silky with plenty of fine tannin and a structure that’s striking for its density. Dark-chocolate flavors are also a prominent feature. This expands vertically on the palate, even if oak ageing has mellowed this nicely all the way up to its creamy finish. A wine of clarity and purity: complex but refined. Drink 2020-2030+.
