    Description

    Cote Rotie 1991
    La Turque, E. Guigal
    2gsl
    Bottle (6)
    "Lively mid crimson. Lots of pure Syrah and velvet fragrance. Very aromatic. Lovely sweet palate entry with fine fruit underneath. Tannins more hidden than La Mouline 1991." (18pts JR, Dec 2009)

    "The 1991 La Turque behaves as if it wants to be the northern Rhone's answer to Richebourg and Musigny. However, with the exception of Domaine Leroy, you cannot find a Richebourg or Musigny with the richness and complexity possessed by this awesome wine. The saturated dark purple color is followed by a wine that is surprisingly lighter in the mouth than its great flavor intensity and rich extraction would suggest. It is a winemaking tour de force in that Guigal has been able to cram phenomenal levels of fruit, complexity, and richness into this velvety-textured wine without causing it to taste heavy." (99 pts. Robert Parker, Rhone Book, Jan. 1997)
