The dense purple-colored, profound 1997 Cote Rotie La Turque (5-7% Viognier added to the blend) offers creme de cassis, licorice, and espresso aromas as well as notions of melted asphalt. Compared to La Mouline, it has additional layers as well as structure, sweet tannin, and exhilarating levels of opulence and ripe fruit. Anticipated maturity: now-2018.

Gorgeous, silky, thickly textured red. Full-bodied, with near flawless balance, delivering layers of mocha, coffee, ginger, blackberry and brownie. Focused, pure and fresh.
