Winemaker Notes:
The Chateau D'Ampuis displays deep dark color with mauve tints with aromas of spices, black fruits and delicate oak; a dense, expressive and intense nose. A tannic and racy wine. Flavors of prunes, blackberry and vanilla. Powerful, concentrated and structured palate. A wine from a tannic and muscular vintage due to the hot climate. Solid tannins, well rounded by long oak ageing.

 

CRITICAL ACCLAIM


Wine Spectator - "Rock-solid, offering dark currant and blackberry paste flavors that race along, thanks to well-embedded graphite and charcoal notes. The finish lets warm fruitcake, plum skin and singed juniper details fill in, with plenty of grip. Mouthwatering acidity and a long echo of sweet tapenade keep this racy and defined. Best from 2015 through 2035."


Robert Parker - "The 2010 Cote Rotie Chateau d’Ampuis is an off-the-hook effort that easily competes with the more expensive single-vineyard releases. Seamless, gorgeously pure and seriously concentrated and full-bodied, it’s an insanely gorgeous Syrah offers layers of creme de cassis, vanilla bean, creamy licorice and smoked meat aromas and flavors. Still a baby, it needs to be forgotten for 4-5 years, at which point it should offer another two decades or more of longevity. Don’t miss this beauty! "


Stephen Tanzer - "Still in vats and getting ready to be bottled, the 2010 Cote Rotie Chateau d’Ampuis is a fresher, more delineated version of the 2009. Loaded with notions of cassis, smoke, licorice, pepper and assorted background meatiness, this gorgeous effort hits the palate with full-bodied richness and depth, serious concentration and ripe tannin, with everything framed nicely by bright acidity. Comprised of 93% Syrah and 7% Viognier and aged 38 months in 100% new French oak, it’s a serious, age-worthy effort that will require patience."
