    Wine Advocate-Parker :
    The surprise of the tasting (and not in a good way), the 2001 Cote Rotie Chateau d'Ampuis has to be considered a disappointment in the vintage and is a wine that needs to be consumed ASAP. Tasted from two separate bottles, it offers slightly oxidized, evolved aromas and flavors of mulled blackberries, garrigue, licorice and toast as well as a medium to full-bodied, open-knit and completely mature feel on the palate. All I can say is I hope that these two bottles aren't representative, but without a doubt, if you have these, it's time to open a bottle and see where you stand.
