Tasting Notes

The 2008 Cote Rotie La Turque offers smoky, meaty barbecue notes intermixed with notions of roasted herbs, forest floor and coffee beans. Although lower-keyed and less well-endowed, it is an outstanding 2008, one of the finest wines of this challenging vintage in Cote Rotie.

Score: 90/92Robert Parker, Wine Advocate (198), December 2011

While the 2008 Cote Rotie la Turque isn’t going to win any blind tastings, it’s a beautiful, elegant and classic Cote Rotie that’s a joy to drink. Giving up notes of smoked meats, blackcurrants, peppery herbs and olive tapenade, it has medium-bodied richness and a classy, elegant texture. It’s drinking at point today and should keep through at least 2023.
