Eye : Deep dark colour with mauve tints. Nose : Spices, black fruits and delicate oak aromas. A dense, expressive and intense nose. Palate : A tannic and racy wine. Aromas of prunes, blackberry and vanilla. Powerful, concentrated and structured palate. Overall : A wine from a tannic and muscular vintage due to the hot climate. Solid tannins, well rounded by long oak aging. Food and wine matching: Game, red meat and cheese.

Wine SpectatorVery focused, with a lovely beam of lightly steeped red currant, bitter cherry and plum fruit flavors that glides atop singed cedar, black tea and dried star anise notes. The long finish is very fine-grained. A gorgeous wine. Best from 2016 through 2027. 400 cases imported.

Wine AdvocateThe 2011 Cote Rotie Chateau d'Ampuis has closed down slightly since last year, yet still offers a terrific perfume of cured meats, vanilla bean, sweet black currants and graphite to go with medium to full-bodied, ripe, sexy style on the palate. I doubt it will truly close down and would happily enjoy bottles anytime over the coming 15 or more years.
