"Masses of energy and concentration. Very firm with marked acidity and density. More than a hint of leather and pipes - very masculine. A real athlete. Not heavy. All muscle. Craquant." JancisRobinson.com

"A stunner, with ganache, warm tobacco leaf, espresso and singed juniper notes leading the way for an immense core of macerated plum, fig and blackberry fruit flavors. The superlong finish cuts a broad swath, presenting smoldering charcoal and iron details. Best from 2017 through 2040. 400 cases made." Wine Spectator

"Inky ruby. Heady, seductively perfumed aromas of dark berry liqueur, candied flowers, smoky minerals and olive paste. Sweet, palate-staining blackberry and violet pastille flavors are lifted and sharpened by juicy acidity and a hint of white pepper. Very rich but lively as well, finishing with strong back-end cut. Shows real power on the strikingly long finish, which features fine-grained tannins and sexy floral and Asian spice qualities." Josh Raynolds, Vinous.com

"On this showing, the 2010 La Turque was incredible, in a lineup of incredible wines. Offering off-the-chart notes of cassis, blackberry, aged beef, chocolate, crushed rock and exotic flowers, it flows onto the palate with a massive, full-bodied feel that carries ultra-fine tannin, awesome depth and a blockbuster finish. Syrah, or wine for that matter, doesn’t get any better. Give this monumental Côte Rôtie 5-6 years and enjoy it over the following 2-3 decades." Jeb Dunnuck, Robert Parker's Wine Advocate #216
