Tasting Notes

100 points Robert Parker: "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."-WA #182, Apr 2009. 99 points Wine Spectator: "Extremely dense and reserved, with only hints of coffee, bittersweet chocolate and charred applewood leaking out from the core of melted fig, black licorice, Lapsang souchong tea and currant preserve notes. Still chewy, with formidable tannins framing the nearly endless finish, this could be the hardest of the trio to break in while cellaring. Best from 2012 through 2034."-WS Web Only 2009. 96-98 points Stephen Tanzer's International Wine Cellar: "Inky ruby. Powerful aromas of red and dark berries, black cardamom, violet and rose, with a strong undercurrent of smoky minerals. Very rich but also shockingly lively, with sweet, highly concentrated raspberry and blueberry flavors given spine by zesty acidity. Finishes sweet and wonderfully pure, with the floral notes echoing. As it did last year, this out-Moulines the Mouline."-IWC Jan/Feb 2009
