E. Guigal La Turque Côte-Rôtie Syrah 2011

$255

...dark fruits, tapenade, graphite and spice in its meaty, truffle, black olive-scented personality. Gorgeously pure and full-bodied, it opens up beautifully with time in the glass, has incredible purity, no hard edges, killer length and an already hard to resist personality. Despite this, is has the tannic backbone, acidity and balance to evolve for three decades. eRobertParker.com

My favourite this evening, thanks to impeccable balance and its floral lift on the nose. Caressing tannins, still young of course, but starting to showcase its true complexity.

And then we get to the La La’s. We had all 3 from Guigal, all the same 2011 vintage. La Turque tends to be my preference. It’s usually still brooding on the palette but with a more fragrant, floral aspect on the nose. Very much the case here even with this baby of a wine.

Bacon fat and pepper in an elegant lean style. Fruit is balanced well by earth and structure. 7% viognier co-planted and co-fermented. A terrific "La"!

Muscle, structure and tannin play equal parts. An infant. Lovely.
