Eye: 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 ageing. Food and wine matching: Game, red meat and cheese.

Wine AdvocateTasting through the six components of the 2001 Cote Rotie Chateau d'Ampuis suggests a wine with far greater depth, more structure, higher acidity than the 2000, and a long, heady finish. All six parcels were rated between 89 and 96 points.

Wine SpectatorFlashy toast up front lets notes of mesquite and incense permeate the dark cherry, blackberry and coffee flavors in this sweet and succulent red, which shows cocoa on the finish. Drink now through 2010.
