E. Guigal Côte Rôtie Château d'Ampuis 2001
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.
