Guigal ‘La Turque’ Cote-Rotie 2008

Syrah from France - Rhone
Review Date : 10-Sep-2014
93% Syrah and 7% Viognier, from a challenging vintage, but still with the richness to handle 42 months in new oak. Even, ruby-red colour with depth. The aromatics are beautifully integrated and harmonious with seamlessly interwoven layers and waves of savoury and spicy red fruits, a lifted exotic floral component, cedary and toasted oak, all exceptionally refined in expression. Superbly rich and luscious on palate, but with a stylish restraint, the detail showing excellent exoticism, layers of red fruits, earth, spices, cedar, savoury herbs and game. The palate is velvety in texture, but the extraction is significant, lurking to prevail. There is vitality with fine acidity underlining the richness. This will retain a degree of elegance showing the vintage. 10-15+ years easily. 19.0+/20 Sep 2014 RRP $704.95
