Another perfect wine is the 2009 Cote Rotie La Turque. It possesses a slightly denser purple color than the opaque Cote Rotie La Mouline as well as notes of Asian spices roasted meats bouquet garni spring flowers camphor and truffles. It is a different expression of Syrah as this comes from the more iron-laden soils of the Cote Brune. Although never as aromatic precocious or enjoyable as La Mouline is in its youth La Turque is nevertheless a remarkably concentrated profound wine that is built like a skyscraper. It possesses a level of intensity and richness that must be tasted to be believed. Despite the flamboyant personality of the vintage the 2009 will require 4-5 years of cellaring and should age effortlessly for 25-30 years. -Robert Parker
