  • Amazing balance of power and finesse

  • Spectacular. Some pundits have called this La Turque 2000 "light". Not to us. Deep ruby colour with no fade to the rim. Fresh on the nose with a wonderful Syrah long finish in the mouth. One bottle left in the cellar and no hurry to drink it. Bravo.

  • double-decanted, slow-ox one hour, served blind & followed over 3 hours before the reveal. (served w/'99 La Turque, '99 & '00 La Mouline)

    deep crimson, w/some lightening at rim; especially smokey & meaty after about one hour, roasted blackberries & blackcurrant confiture, wild herbs, toasted peppercorn; med++ body; sweetly ripe initially, segueing to smoked meats, dark minerals, cocoa powder, subdued tannins & fine acidity. a very good to excellent bottle, this was the least demonstrative of tonight's four.

    turkey & wild mushroom Cornish "pasties"

    coriander- & juniper-rubbed wild venison loin w/syrah-blk. pepper reduction; roasted turnips & their greens, brown-butter pears, roquefort & walnuts

  • Very good. Needed about an hour of air to blow off and settle but after that it was smooth and elegant. In a good place right now.

  • La Turque light is an apt description. The fruit is clean, ripe, soft and open, but the medium bodied finish is quite short. In this vintage, this is one of those famous wines that is not worth the money.
