Eye: Deep ruby red with dark tints. Nose: Small red fruit, blackberry, morello cherry Intensely aromatic, powerful and elegant. Palate: Supple attack with a balanced supple structure, concentration and elegant tannins. Fully expressive of the terroir. Overall: With all the virility of the Côte Brune, La Turque also has all the subtlety and femininity of the Côte Blonde.

Wine AdvocateOn this showing, the 2010 La Turque was incredible, in a lineup of incredible wines. Offering off-the-chart notes of cassis, blackberry, aged beef, chocolate, crushed rock and exotic flowers, it flows onto the palate with a massive, full-bodied feel that carries ultra-fine tannin, awesome depth and a blockbuster finish. Syrah, or wine for that matter, doesn't get any better. Give this monumental Cote Rotie 5-6 years and enjoy it over the following 2-3 decades.

Wine SpectatorA stunner, with ganache, warm tobacco leaf, espresso and singed juniper notes leading the way for an immense core of macerated plum, fig and blackberry fruit flavors. The superlong finish cuts a broad swath, presenting smoldering charcoal and iron details. Best from 2017 through 2040. 400 cases made.
