Young, jammy and upfront, the 2000 E. Guigal Côte-Rôtie Château d'Ampuis shows big fruit, smoke and cassis notes with a medium to full bodied palate, lush, easy drinking texture and a clean, long finish.

A big step up, yet also mature, the 2000 Cote Rotie Chateau d’Ampuis is a classic effort that gives up beautiful olive tapenade, cured meats and dried flowers to go with a core of raspberry-styled fruit. Medium-bodied, supple, textured and ready to go, plan on drinking bottles over the coming 4 to 5 years.
