ICONS OF WINE: Guigal La Turque Cote-Rotie 2009
Our latest luxury tasting is a chance to sample the most iconic of Northern Rhone Syrahs - Guigal's La Turque 2009.
Guigal is Rhône royalty and among other wines produces 3 top Cote-Roties: La Landonne, La Mouline and La Turque (collectively known as the La La’s).
These single-vineyard La La’s are the justly acclaimed jewels in the crown. Simply put, there’s nothing like Guigal’s La La’s and we have one to try from one of the best recent vintages (retailing at over £600)!
This evening is another opportunity to taste a luxury iconic wine we would never normally be able to afford, by spreading the cost between us (12 guests).
2009 was such a fabulous year for the Northern Rhone and Guigal's La Turque 2009 scored 100/100 points among critics.
Influential American critic Robert Parker has proclaimed, “Guigal’s single vineyard Côte-Rôties are other-worldly in nearly every vintage. I have given these offerings more perfect scores than any other wines in the world.”
Jancis Robinson is also a big fan, adding: “One man, Marcel Guigal, is chiefly responsible for the renaissance of this zone.”
During the evening we will sample from among Guigal's Rhone range (both north and south) building up to the La Turque grand finale. There will also be specially selected meats and cheeses available as nibbles.
On the menu for the evening will be:
- Guigal Condrieu 2015 £45
- Guigal Cotes-du-Rhone £12.99
- Guigal Gigondas 2014 £21.99
- Guigal Hermitage £43
- Guigal Cote-Rotie Brune to Blonde 2013 £45
- Guigal 'La Turque' Cote-Rotie 2009 £608
