Winemaker's Notes

"Tasting through the six components of the 2001 Cote Rotie Chateau d'Ampuis suggests a wine with far greater depth, more structure, higher acidity than the 2000, and a long, heady finish." 91-95 Points
Wine Advocate
December 2004

"Flashy toast up front lets notes of mesquite and incense permeate the dark cherry, blackberry and coffee flavors in this sweet and succulent red, which shows cocoa on the finish. Drink now through 2010." 91 Points
Wine Spectator
May 15, 2005

"bottled two weeks prior to my visit, following 38 months in oak) Superripe aromas of pepper, chocolate and menthol. Wonderfully deep flavors of cherries and spice. A very fresh, elegant wine with compelling sweetness but also excellent backbone. Really coats the palate on the very long aftertaste, finishing with strong spiciness and great lift. This makes the Guigal 2000 La-La wines seem almost soft by comparison."
