Just as good, yet more classic in style, the 2006 Cote Rotie Chateau d’Ampuis offers up full-bodied richness and loads of texture to go with knockout aromas and flavors of creme de cassis, licorice, violets and assorted wild flower-like qualities. It has fabulous purity, solid mid-palate concentration and great acidity. Drink it anytime over the coming decade or more. - Jeb Dunnuck

Every bit as good as the '05 the 2006 E. Guigal Côte-Rôtie Château d'Ampuis has knockout aromatics of cassis smoke fried meat and perfumed delicate floral notes. With air subtle classy oak notes show up. The palate is medium to full bodied with stunning fruit a full texture edgy acidity and a focused long finish. Fleshy and softer than the '05 this should evolve for 3 to 5 years and then drink well over the following 15+.

Red and dark berry preserves and spice cake on the nose, with complicating floral qualities that gain strength with air. Very fresh, with intense black raspberry and bitter cherry flavors supported by a firm spine of minerality. Fine-grained and nimble, with admirable finishing clarity and precision.

Still a touch tight this builds slowly with tangy red and black currant fruit married to dark olive notes. There's a tarry edge on the finish with lingering iron and espresso notes that gain steam nicely as they air... Still a touch tight this builds slowly with tangy red and black currant fruit married to dark olive notes. There's a tarry edge on the finish with lingering iron and espresso notes that gain steam nicely as they air in the glass. Drink now through 2019. 2500 cases made. -JM
