While the 2008 Cote Rotie la Turque isn’t going to win any blind tastings, it’s a beautiful, elegant and classic Cote Rotie that’s a joy to drink. Giving up notes of smoked meats, blackcurrants, peppery herbs and olive tapenade, it has medium-bodied richness and a classy, elegant texture. It’s drinking at point today and should keep through at least 2023.
