Once again the 2005 Cote Rotie La Turque is a mesmerizing wine. Its extraordinary perfume of camphor black truffles bacon fat spring flowers blackberries and cherries is followed by a dense full-bodied pure multilayered wine of superb balance and impeccable harmony. This profound amazing 2005 should be forgotten for 4-5 years and drunk over the next three decades.

Extremely dense and reserved with only hints of coffee bittersweet chocolate and charred apple wood leaking out from the core of melted fig black licorice Lapsang souchong tea and currant preserve notes. Still chewy with formidable tannins framing the nearly endless finish this could be the hardest of the trio to break in while cellaring. Best from 2012 through 2034. 400 cases made. -JM

Powerful scents of dark berries cherry preserves Indian spices and violet. Showing more richness than the Mouline with chewy smoky blackberry and mulberry flavors and a string jolt of peppery spice on the back end. Really clings to the palate finishing with strong notes of candied violet and lush dark berries. This has gained richness and breadth in the last year and will repay extended cellaring.
