2015 E. Guigal "La Turque" Côte-Rôtie

SKU #1431657 97-100 points Jeb Dunnuck

 The 2015 Côte Rôtie La Turque (93% Syrah and 7% Viognier) is straight-up thrilling stuff and offers a massive, full-bodied style that stays seamless, incredibly elegant, and perfectly balanced. It doesn’t have the sheer weight or exotic quality of the La Mouline, yet gives up textbook crème de cassis, crushed rocks, violets, and graphite aromas and flavors. With fine tannins and a stacked mid-palate, it’s going to require 5-7 years of bottle age.  (12/2018)

99 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate

 Like the La Mouline, the 2015 Cote Rotie La Turque comes across as slightly closed—I wouldn't be surprised to see it inch up to a perfect rating in a decade or so. Lashings of ground spices—pepper, allspice, cardamom—are sprinkled over mixed berries, but this full-bodied wine is locked up tight, finishing with firm tannins. Give it at least 5-6 years, maybe even a decade or so, before pulling a cork. (JC)  (12/2019)

99 points Wine Spectator

 Dark plum, boysenberry and fig fruit is steeped with notes of anise, black tea, ganache and roasted apple wood. A warm cast iron spine drives the finish, pulling all the components together. Delivers serious cut and drive, holding a deep well of fruit in reserve. Best from 2025 through 2045  (9/2019)

98 points James Suckling

 The personality of this wine is in full, flamboyant flight in 2015 with such expressive aromas of fragrant spices, roses and violet flowers, orange zest, white pepper, dark stones, exotic baking spices and beautifully ripe blackberries, blood plums and some redder fruit notes. The palate delivers plenty of energy and depth with ripe, dark and juicy tannins, wrapped around a very rich, intense and fleshy blackberry core. Impressive and still just a baby. Try from 2026.  (10/2019)

97 points Vinous

 Saturated purple. Hugely perfumed aromas of dark berry preserves, incense, potpourri, smoky bacon and spicecake. Cola, olive and cracked pepper flourishes build with air. Youthfully and broad in the mouth, offering deeply concentrated, sharply defined black/blue fruit, spicecake, vanilla and violet pastille flavors that are brightened by a smoky mineral accent. Chewy and appealingly sweet on the extremely long, floral-dominated finish framed by youthful, slow-building tannins. (JR)  (9/2019)

Jancis Robinson

 More fragrant and open than La Mouline, aromatically speaking. Super-fine tannins, giving a chocolatey texture with delicious charred meatiness on the finish. Only just coming out of its shell, but there's loads of promise and purity on the palate -- and again, that oak is entirely intertwined. Lengthy, powerful and svelte. 18+/20 points. (RH)  (7/2019)
