From the haunting nose through to the end of the extremely long finish this wine embodies the rocky personality of Cote-Rotie, along with the special ripeness that the syrah achieves here. As floral as it is stony, as structured as it is concentrated, yet all of this builds an imposing and enchanting whole. A cuvee of 93% syrah and 7% viognier. Matured in 100% new oak for 42 months. Drinkable now, but best from 2025. ~ (98) James Suckling, JamesSuckling.com 5-22-2023

Cask sample, tasted at the domaine. Lots of clove and peppercorn. Incredible energy, drive and vibrancy on the palate – this is all about verve, direction, definition and tantalising freshness. The subtle intricacies of clove and smoke adorn the pure and densely rich palate. ~ (19) Alistair Cooper, JancisRobinson.com 10-16-2020

I was blown away by the 2019 Côte Rôtie La Turque, which comes from a tiny parcel in the Côte Brune and is fermented with a touch of Viognier as well as a small amount of stems. It too has a smoky, meaty, gamey profile as well as full-bodied richness and tons of mid-palate depth and concentration. It's another serious 2019 with structure to spare, remarkable purity, flawless balance, and a great finish. As usual, it's not for the instant gratification crowd and is going to demand 10-15 years of bottle age. ~ (100) Jeb Dunnuck, JebDunnuck.com 12-15-2022

The extroverted 2019 Cote Rotie La Turque is about as impressive a young wine as I've tasted at Guigal, with extravagant, blossom-like aromas and oodles of cassis and blueberries. Full-bodied, it's simultaneously concentrated and rich yet airy and almost weightless, an outrageous juxtaposition of characters that must be tasted to be understood. ~ (100) Joe Czerwinski, Robert Parker's Wine Advocate 2-10-2022
