"Still in barrel, the 2014 Cote Rotie La Turque shows classy floral aromas and red raspberries upfront, then delivers herbal notes, layers of red fruit and lithe, wiry structure on the medium to full-bodied palate. It manages to be silky in texture yet firm at the same time, concentrated yet seemingly weightless, and long on the finish."
Now 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.
