More closed than when I tasted it earlier this year, the 2010 Cote Rotie Chateau d’Ampuis is an incredible effort that’s made from 93% Syrah and 7% Viognier. Coming from the estate’s top sites and aged 38 months in new oak, it has no problem standing beside the top three single-vineyard releases. Crème de cassis, vanilla bean, smoked meats and licorice all flow to a full-bodied, beautifully concentrated, structured Cote Rotie that needs another 5-6 years of bottle age, but will keep for 2-3 decades.

99 points from Robert Parker

Winery Notes:

Grape variety: Syrah 93%, Viognier 7%.

Tasting: 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 ageing.
