E. Guigal 1998 Château d'Ampuis (Côte Rôtie)

This wine spends 38 months in new wood, and the question is whether the fruit can support it. Yes, but barely, since the spice, tannins and dryness all come from the wood, not the fruit. Maybe in 10 years' time there will be a chance for black fruits and the perfumed flavors to come through. Roger Voss
