Robert Parker, Jr.'s Wine Advocate: "Tasted as a final blend and scheduled to be bottled just after my visit, the 2013 Côte Rôtie Chateau d’Ampuis is a smokin’ good wine in the vintage. Deep, concentrated and structured, with classic and masculine notes of graphite, smoked black fruits and crushed rocks, this full-bodied beauty has bright acidity, ripe tannin and beautiful length. It needs 7-8 years of cellaring to hit maturity and will have two to three decades of overall longevity. Drink: 2023-2053." Dec 2016
Winery: "Eye : Deep dark colour with mauve tints. Nose : Spices, black fruits and delicate oak aromas. A dense, expressive and intense nose. Palate : A tannic and racy wine. Aromas of prunes, blackberry and vanilla. Powerful, concentrated and structured palate. Overall : A wine from a tannic and muscular vintage due to the hot climate. Solid tannins, well rounded by long oak ageing."
