2010 Guigal Cote Rotie

Post by Scott DeZutti » Mon Feb 22, 2016 8:19 am

Jeff, I was hoping you could help me with a question. I am going to buy 1 bottle of 2010 Guigal Cote Rotie to drink in a few years. Between the La Mouline and La Turque, which would you purchase if it could only be one?

Hi Scott

I suppose 2010 Guigal La Mouline would show a little better in a few years than 2010 Guigal La Turque. But if you're going to score a high end bottle of Guigal to open in a few years, why purchase 2010? Why not buy a vintage with some age on it?

Better value I guess is the main reason. I can get the 2010 for $450. I think I could find 2009 for around the same but any older and the prices start to go up. How many years do you typically find the La Turque needs to open up in great vintages?

Also, I think spending that much money I feel better having the wine spend it's life in my cellar than not being sure where it's been..

I am not up 100% on what the Guigal La La wines are selling for today. But I think for about the same money, you can buy the stunning 1998 wines. It's the best value in Guigal today for quality, character and style.

As to how they are showing today, I have a lot of current tasting notes on all the Guigal La La wines from a myriad of vintages that might help. If you have not check the out yet. http://www.thewinecellarinsider.com/rho ... nne-ampuis

$450 is a real lot of money for a bottle of wine. That being said, I personally think the Guigal La La's are worth it. But if you're going to spend that much money, only because you mentioned you were going to drink it sooner than later, you might want to consider about $150-$200 more about looking for the 1999, or even 1991, which are off the charts!
