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 AdvocateNow that it's in bottle, the 2014 Cote Rotie La Turque has exceeded all of my earlier expectations. It's got those classic Côte Rôtie elements on the nose of smoked bacon, olives and violets, seamlessly entwined with supple tannins and raspberry fruit. Medium to full-bodied, it's silky and fine, showing tremendous length and complexity on the finish. On this occasion, La Turque came to the head of the class as the most approachable, exciting and elegant of the three La Las.

Wine SpectatorVery dark, lush and alluring, this lets waves of Turkish coffee, warm ganache, melted black licorice, fig and plum sauce roll through while a light mesquite frame melds nicely along the edges. A tug of earth at the end keeps this grounded while the fruit pumps along. Best from 2021 through 2042. 90 cases imported.
