The 1999 Cote Rotie La Turque reveals notes of toasty vanilla and espresso in addition to Asian spices mocha pepper blackberries creosote and roasted meats. The exotic perfume is followed by a wine with phenomenal intensity sweet well-integrated tannin huge body and loads of concentrated fruit. It is a tour de force in winemaking. Anticipated maturity: 2006-2025. What is so remarkable about this cuvee is its tremendous layers of flavor awesome texture and perfect balance. This is an astonishing offering from one of the world's greatest winemakers.

Nose boasts great aromatic lift and urgency, with the classic griotte cherry of La Turque plus bitter chocolate and licorice. Less complex in the mouth today than La Mouline but precise, pure and extremely primary (especially given the fact that it's been in barrel for a solid three years). Best today on the palate-staining finish. This is scheduled to be bottled in January of 2003 but probably could support even longer elevage.
