E. Guigal Château d'Ampuis Côte-Rôtie Syrah 2009

$139

More ripe, voluptuous and decadent, the 2009 Cote Rotie Chateau d'Ampuis offers rocking dark fruits, cured meats, dried flowers, licorice and toasty/graphite-like qualities to go with a full-bodied, pedal-to-the-metal style on the palate. Gaining more and more freshness as it sat in the glass, this prodigious effort can be consumed anytime over the coming 2-3 decades. Robert Parker

Insanely good for a young Côte rotie. All the guts were there. Held up for days. Beautiful.
