By Guigal

2007 La Turque - Cote Brune from Guigal, Rhone

The 2007 vintage saw the creation of an iconic and influential presence in the world of prestigious French wines. From Rhone, emanating through the esteemed lineage of Guigal, comes the 2007 La Turque - Cote Brune with a depth and complexity far exceeding its humble origins. Built on that extraordinary year's climatic benevolence, this vintage exemplifies a premium quality Syrah that has captivated collectors and investors alike.


La Turque - Geology meets Artistry

In exploiting the unique terroir of Cote Brune, Guigal has been able to capture the mineralitic intensity born from the dark schistous mica soils and steeply sloping vineyards. The 2007 La Turque - Cote Brune captures that alchemy of concentrated richness infused with heady black fruit flavours and spiced undertones, a signature of this exceptional Syrah.

This vintage embodies a pure expression of the Rhone Valley, with distinct nuances, beautifully crafted tannins that have softened over years to become seamlessly integrated in texture. The voluptuousness of ripe fruits is strikingly counterbalanced by an orchestration of intense minerality.


Resilient Vintage, Remarkable Wine

The guile and tenacity displayed by winemakers was put to the test in 2007; an unusual year marked by a long summer with unseasonably heavy rains, succeeded by near-perfect conditions leading up to harvest. I am constantly intrigued how Guigal’s high standards are unwavered even in challenging vintages such as this.

The synergy between pronounced acidity and structure in this vintage has shaped its excellent ageing potential. It carries distinct notes of truffle, smoked meats, olives, and grilled herbs wrapped around a core of dark fruit - a testament of its impeccably complex palate.

The timeless charm of the 2007 La Turque - Cote Brune makes it not only a sensory delight but also a wise investment choice for those seeking blue-chip wines that continue to yield appealing returns. This iconic Rhone wine's elegant complexity combined with high demand makes it worth considering as an integral part of any discerning investor's portfolio.


La Turque - A symphony of Syrah

This vintage is nothing short of an orchestra of flavours. It presents a vivid culmination of fine tannins, opulent berries, rich spices and whispers of tobacco - a harmonious blend resonating much like a grand symphony. Its profound complexity combined with a poised maturity reverence the skilled craftsmanship of Guigal while echoing the unique identity of Cote Brune terroir amidst the prevailing tapestry of Rhone Valley wines.

Indeed, the aristocracy and prestige captured in every bottle is testament to why the 2007 La Turque - Cote Brune maintains its alluring charm among avid investors and collectors alike.

The 2007 Cote Rotie la Turque is an elegant, seamless example of this cuvee that offers sensational notes of smoked meats, truffles, blackberries and cassis, as well as a hint of tapenade with time in the glass. It has a rich, unctuous and full-bodied profile on the palate, with sweet, sweet tannin and an utterly seamless texture that makes it go down way too easy. Drink this beauty anytime over the coming two decades or more.
