The spectacular 2009 Cote Rotie Chateau d’Ampuis boasts a dense purple color along with abundant aromas of incense, charcoal, lavender, black raspberries, lard/bacon fat, licorice and background toast. This rich, full-bodied, tannic, massive Cote Rotie begs for 2–4 years of bottle age, and should drink well for two decades thereafter. Marcel Guigal believes it is the finest Chateau d’Ampuis made to date (the debut was 1995).

A broad, muscular style, with a distinctive mix of roasted mesquite and apple wood out front, followed by lush raspberry confiture, crushed plum and blackberry fruit flavors. There's ample depth, with smoldering tobacco, juniper and mocha all mixed on the finish. Relies primarily on bass and pumps along nicely. Best from 2015 through 2035.

Bright purple. A compelling, heady bouquet of red and dark berries, violets, Szechuan peppercorn and smoky minerals. Sappy and precise, offering palate-staining raspberry preserve and cherry-cola flavors and notes of candied flowers and spicecake. Nervy and focused on a gently tannic finish that strongly echoes the raspberry and floral notes.

An exotic and flashy red, with bold espresso, melted licorice, incense and black tea aromatics rushing forth, backed by dense but focused noted of blackberry and plum pâte de fruit. The long, graphite-filled finish drips with fruit and singed wood notes, and should meld nicely in the cellar. Best from 2013 through 2023.

A pure, unadulterated raspberry confiture aroma and flavor is the dominant note today in this deep and expressive red, with extra singed anise, alder, juniper and black currant notes filling in the background, followed by a very dense yet supremely polished finish. Features the weight and density of this fleshy vintage, but the fruit is so inviting this is almost approachable now. Better to wait though. Best from 2015 through 2035.

Another perfect wine is the 2009 Cote Rotie La Turque. It possesses a slightly denser purple color than the opaque Cote Rotie La Mouline as well as notes of Asian spices, roasted meats, bouquet garni, spring flowers, camphor and truffles. It is a different expression of Syrah as this comes from the more iron-laden soils of the Cote Brune. Although never as aromatic, precocious or enjoyable as La Mouline is in its youth, La Turque is, nevertheless, a remarkably concentrated, profound wine that is built like a skyscraper. It possesses a level of intensity and richness that must be tasted to be believed. Despite the flamboyant personality of the vintage, the 2009 will require 4–5 years of cellaring and should age effortlessly for 25–30 years.

Goldgelbe Farbe, glanzklar. Markante Frische. Duft von weissen Blumen, Aprikosen, Akazien und weissen Pfirsichen. Fruchtiger, fülliger, reichhaltiger Wein, schön eingebunden, ausgewogen und elegant.

Winemaker's Notes:

"The 2009 Cote Rotie Chateau d’Ampuis should turn out to be spectacular. Its dense purple color is accompanied by notes of camphor, incense, jammy black raspberries and blackberries, smoky barbecue, charcoal, graphite and licorice. Full-bodied, succulent and opulent, this flamboyant vintage has produced a stunning Cote Rotie that can be drunk young or cellared for two decades or more...94-97" WA 12/11
