Masculine and burly, the 2006 E. Guigal Côte-Rôtie La Turque is an absolutely stunning effort that delivers explosive aromas of rusted iron, blood, and crushed rock that are supported by smoky, meaty dark fruits. Ripe and concentrated on the palate, with full bodied power and depth, perfect balance, and huge underlying structure and tannin the comes through on the finish, this is actually approachable now given the level of fruit and texture; however, this needs 8-10 years bottle age, and should drink well for decades!

Possessing more acidity and obvious structure than the 2007, the 2006 Cote Rotie La Turque offers ample notes of charred meats, blackcurrants, cassis, saddle leather and spice. Still inky purple in color, with a straight, focused, lengthy style, give this full-bodied beauty another 2-3 years of cellaring and enjoy over the following two decades or more.
