The potentially perfect 2015 Cote Rotie La Turque takes all of this vineyard s exotic floral and herbal notes, red raspberry fruit, spice shadings and meaty complexity and compresses them into an incredibly dense, powerful and intense package. Full-bodied, rich and velvety yet ethereal at the same time, this incredibly long wine should prove to be a legend.

99 Points - Wine Spectator Magazine:
"Dark plum, boysenberry and fig fruit is steeped with notes of anise, black tea, ganache and roasted apple wood. A warm cast iron spine drives the finish, pulling all the components together along the way. Delivers serious cut and drive, holding a deep well of fruit in reserve. Best 2025 through 2045. 88 cases imported." - JM Issue Web Only - 2019
