Wine Spectator 94 points - The fabulous 2005 Cote Rotie Chateau d’Ampuis is a resounding success. This is the first vintage where Guigal’s newest acquisition, the Syrah from the Viria Vineyard (essentially a fourth single vineyard), is included in the blend. Dark ruby/purple to the rim, it boasts an extraordinary bouquet of ground pepper, creme de cassis, blackberries, coffee, bacon fat, and herbs. With outstanding concentration, huge tannin, and massive intensity as well as extract, it needs 7-8 years of cellaring, and should keep for 30-35 years.
Rock-solid, with a great core of dark plum and fig fruit woven with incense, Turkish coffee, melted licorice and mineral notes. The long finish lets the mouthwatering acidity carry it all nicely. There's impressive drive and density. Best from 2010 through 2020. 2,500 cases made. –JM
