Parker : 95 / 100
Wine Advocate-Parker :
The 2016 Cote Rotie Chateau d'Ampuis was slated to be bottled after the 2019 harvest. It's much more open than the 2015 and lighter in weight as well. It's medium to full-bodied, with cedary accents to the crisp red-berry fruit flavors and ripe, silky tannins on the long finish. It should be approachable relatively young and drink well for 10-15 years or more.
