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
External Reviews for E. Guigal Côte-Rôtie la Turque
Rich and ripe, well-made and full-bodied, this mellow red offers opulence despite its tannic structure. Packed with black currants, grilled meat, mineral, smoke and a slight gamy note. Long, balanced finish. Drink now through 2015.
The fabulous 2005 Cote Rotie Chateau d'Ampuis is a resounding success. This is the first vintage where Guigal's newest acquisition, the Syrah from the Viria Vineyard (essentially a fourth single vineyard), is included in the blend. Dark ruby/purple t... Robert Parker. A Syrah wine from Rhone in France. 2005 Guigal Cote Rotie Chateau d'Ampuis 750ml
Rock-solid, with a great core of dark plum and fig woven with incense, Turkish coffee, melted licorice and mineral notes. The long finish lets the mouthwatering acidity carry it all nicely. Thereandrsquo;s impressive drive and density. Best from 2010 through 2020.
Bright medium ruby. Knockout liqueur-like nose combines black raspberry, blueberry, blackberry, black cherry and licorice, with just a suggestion of surmaturite. Lush, silky and seamless on the palate, with a deep flavor of dark chocolate. Offers great volume without any excess weight. Powerful but not hot. Finishes with superb length and richness. The best vintage yet for this bottling.
If the 2006 represents a 1991-ish feminine offering, the 2005 Cote Rotie Chateau dandrsquo;Ampuis is a macho, masculine-styled effort. Dense, concentrated, and powerful, with gamy black currant, spice box, bacon fat, and herb notes, this chewy, tannic, enormously promising requires 3andndash;4 years of cellaring, and should drink well over the following two decades or more.
Bright ruby. Drop-dead gorgeous aromas of raspberry, spicecake, potpourri and incense. Round, sappy and sweet, with deeply concentrated red fruit flavors, melting tannins and energetic mineral snap. An exotic candied floral quality gains power with air and carries through the finish, which is strikingly pure and lively. Very impressive, pure wine with wonderful balance.
Ein gehaltvoller, ausgewogener und nachhaltiger Rotwein. Schwarzrot mit leichten Violettreflexen. Das Degu-Team empfand diesen Wein als sehr komplex in der Nase, und von mittlerer Intensität. Es zeigt sich in erster Linie Steinobstcharakter (Zwetschge, Pflaume) etwas beerige Noten (Brombeere, Cassis) und eine Spur Dörrfrüchte. Dazu kommen würzig/röstige Aromen (Pfeffer, Toastbrot). Im Gaumen zeigt sich der Wein recht konzentriert, mit einer noch etwas markanten Adstringenz (Gerbstoff), was auf eine gute Lagerfähigkeit schliessen lässt. Die Rückaromatik wiederholt präzise die grosse Aromenvielfalt.
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.
