The E. Guigal Cote-Rotie "Chateau d'Ampuis" appears a deep dark color with mauve tints in the glass. Spices, black fruits and delicate oak aromas. A dense, expressive and intense nose. A tannic and racy wine on the palate. Aromas of prunes, blackberry and vanilla. Powerful, concentrated and structured palate.

E. Guigal Cote-Rotie Description

Produced from seven of the most exceptional plots of the domain, Château d’Ampuis is a classy wine with toasty aromas of black fruit. Its tannic structure and elegance contribute to its ageing potential.

Closed stainless steel tanks. Temperature controlled alcoholic fermentation, 4 week maceration, then aged for 38 months in new oak. 93% Syrah 7% Viognier

Wine Advocate: 93 Points

The 2011 Cote Rotie Chateau d’Ampuis has closed down slightly since last year, yet still offers a terrific perfume of cured meats, vanilla bean, sweet black currants and graphite to go with medium to full-bodied, ripe, sexy style on the palate. I doubt it will truly close down and would happily enjoy bottles anytime over the coming 15 or more years. Anticipated Maturity: 2015-2030
