E. Guigal Côte-Rôtie la Turque 2005
The Guigal family owns vineyards in Condrieu and in the Côte-Rôtie with illustrious plots producing wines such as ‘La Doriane’ in Condrieu, the famous growths of the Côte-Rôtie ‘La Mouline’, ‘La Turque’ and ‘La Landonne’, Côte-Rôtie Château d’Ampuis, Hermitage ‘Ex-Voto’, produced only in the great vintages and Saint-Joseph ‘Lieu-Dit Saint-Joseph’ in red and white, as well as the famous Saint-Joseph red 'Vignes de l’Hospice'. These wines have each become flagships of their appellations. In the cellars of the Guigal estate in Ampuis, the northern appellations of the Rhône Valley are produced and aged. These are the appellations of Côte-Rôtie, Condrieu, Hermitage, Saint-Joseph and Crozes-Hermitage. The great appellations of the Southern Rhône; Châteauneuf-du-Pape, Gigondas, Tavel and Côtes-du-Rhône are also aged in the Ampuis cellars. Robert Parker writes of this incredible wine: "Once again the 2005 Cote Rotie La Turque is a mesmerizing wine. Its extraordinary perfume of camphor, black truffles, bacon fat, spring flowers, blackberries, and cherries is followed by a dense, full-bodied, pure, multilayered wine of superb balance and impeccable harmony. This profound, amazing 2005 should be forgotten for 4-5 years, and drunk over the next three decades." - 100 points.
Light yellow. Hints of lemon zest. Crisp with lemon flavors. Not very complex with short finish
E Guigal Chateau D'Ampus Gigondas 2005- Color- crystal ruby. Nose- light, with grape laying overtop an oaky blanket bringing out subtle spices and pepper, along with hints of dried flowers and decomposing forest floor. Oddly, the spices remind me of steak seasoning (not steak/bbq aroma though). Unsurpassed smoothness with a pleasant mouth feel. Drying with Oak and spice yet maintains that humid presence. Not necessarily the best wine for a tasting, but would have been better with a meal to compliment. Very long and satisfying finish, but leaves a slight bitter tannin on the back palate. Still young and could stand to age. Note* after about an hour and a half of hair, the wine evolved to an odd mixture of mint sauce, cinnamon and woody (not necessarily oak) spices/notes. Score: 88
