The 2011 Cote Rotie la Turque is about as seamless and sexy as wine gets, and this cuvee continues to put on weight and richness with every passing year. Offering a monstrous nose of Asian spices, kirsch liqueur, blackcurrants, pepper and smoked meats, this full-bodied Cote Rotie has layers of sweet tannin, no hard edges and a killer finish. It's already hard to resist today, but has three decades of prime drinking to go. (JD)
A brick house, with a thick wall of smoldering charcoal in front of the fruit, though the core of steeped plum, blackberry and fig flavors has ample energy and depth in reserve. Given time, these elements should meld with the beautiful singed iron and mesquite hints already peeking in on the finish. Best from 2018 through 2030. *Collectibles* (JM)
(aged for 42 months in new oak): Inky ruby. A highly complex bouquet evokes candied dark berries, cherry cola, incense and potpourri. Offers intense, seductively sweet black and blue fruit, cola and violet pastille flavors enlivened by juicy acidity and peppery spices. Closes extremely long and juicy, displaying a bright mineral quality and building tannins and leaving behind a suave floral note. (JR)
Exotic, silky and a little vegetal. Fine, polished, still a little skinny but I’m sure all those months in oak…! Long and fine. 18/20 points. (JR)
