2005 E. Guigal "Château d'Ampuis" Côte-Rôtie

SKU #1044230 96 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate

Outer quote mark More masculine, backwards and concentrated, the 2005 Côte-Rotie Chäteau d’Ampuis is a full-bodied, structured effort that’s just barely starting to show some secondary nuances. Giving up notions of violet, asphalt, graphite, crushed rock, bacon fat and dried rose petal, it has impeccable balance, notable concentration and a big finish. (JD) 96+ Inner quote mark (8/2014)

95 points Jeb Dunnuck

Outer quote mark Consistent with prior reviews of this wine, the 2005 E. Guigal Côte-Rôtie Château d'Ampuis is a beauty. Cassis, toast, smoked meats, and spice aromas all show up on the nose and are followed by a medium to full bodied, beautifully layered palate that is perfectly balanced, and finishes with loads of fine-grained tannin. Still very youthful and young, give bottles another 5 to 6 years, and then drink over the following decade or longer. Inner quote mark (3/2011)

94 points Wine Spectator

Outer quote mark Rock-solid, with a great core of dark plum and fig fruit woven with incense, Turkish coffee, melted licorice and mineral notes. The long finish lets the mouthwatering acidity carry it all nicely. There's impressive drive and density. *Collectibles* (JM) Inner quote mark (5/2009)

93 points Vinous

Outer quote mark Vivid ruby. Potent, intensely perfumed aromas of red berries, Asian spices, dried flowers and minerals expand with air and pick up a note of cracked pepper. Deep, concentrated and surprisingly graceful, offering mineral-laced raspberry and cherry flavors and a sexy floral quality. Clings tenaciously on the strikingly pure and focused finish This wine was just bottled. (JR) Inner quote mark (1/2010)
