1995 E. Guigal "Château d'Ampuis" Côte-Rôtie

SKU #1408880 93 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate

 One of the treats when tasting through the profound Côte Rôties made by Marcel Guigal was the opportunity to taste all of the bottled 1995's. Reviewed in previous issues, they are even better from bottle than they were during their upbringing (a characteristic of many Guigal wines). The 1995 Côte Rôtie Château d'Ampuis is the stuff of legends and is every bit as compelling as readers might expect. This single vineyard wine will have at least 15 years of longevity.(RMP)  (10/1999)

92 points Stephen Tanzer's International Wine Cellar

 Saturated deep ruby. Explosive aromas of sappy, superripe raspberry, tar, spices and Mediterranean herbs. Very sweet and lush in the mouth, with an impressively deep core of spice. Extremely expressive wine, and a very strong debut. But not quite as multifaceted as the three crus, La Mouline, La Turque, and La Landonne. 'When you blend six parcels,' noted Philippe Guigal matter-of-factly, 'you can't have the same complexity as you can with one'-a statement that lurked at the edge of my consciousness through the remainder of my stay in the Rhône Valley. (ST)  (1/1999)

K&L Notes

This is the inaugural vintage of what has become one of the most iconic wines in the Guigal stable.
