E. Guigal Cote Rotie Château d'Ampuis 2013
Deep dark colour with mauve tints. Nose : Spices, black fruits and delicate oak aromas. A dense, expressive and intense nose. Palate : A tannic and racy wine. Aromas of prunes, blackberry and vanilla. Powerful, concentrated and structured palate. Overall : A wine from a tannic and muscular vintage due to the hot climate. Solid tannins, well rounded by long oak aging. Food and wine matching: Game, red meat and cheese.
Robert Parker/Wine Advocate – The 2013 Cote Rotie Chateau d'Ampuis (it always incorporates 7% Viognier) will check in behind the sensational 2009 and 2010, but should be on par with the 2005 and 2003. Cassis, licorice, smoked meats, graphite and peppery spice all emerge from this beautifully concentrated, full-bodied, seamless Cote Rotie that has building, ripe tannin, terrific purity and a blockbuster finish. It will have 20-25 years of longevity.
