This wine is from France, Rhone region, Northern Rhone sub-region and Cote-rotie appellation. This Guigal guy is getting pretty good. Try the Cote Rotie Chateau dAmpuis. The spectacular 2009 Cote Rotie Chateau d'Ampuis boasts a dense purple color along with abundant aromas of incense, charcoal, lavender, black raspberries, lard/bacon fat, licorice and background toast. This rich, full-bodied, tannic, massive Cote Rotie begs for 2-4 years of bottle age, and should drink well for two decades thereafter.
