Tasting Notes

The 2015 Côte Rôtie La Landonne is another wine that has perfection written all over it. Made in a more backward, concentrated, structured style, its inky purple color is followed by a mammoth bouquet of smoked black fruits, charcoal, camphor, and graphite, with more meaty notes developing with time in the glass. With a finish that won’t quit, this locked and loaded, full-bodied beast of a wine will be for patient consumers with cold cellars. It’s going to take a decade or more for it to be drinkable, but it might just be a 5- to 6-decade wine.

Score: 97/100Jeb Dunnuck, JebDunnuck.com, December 2018

Of all the terrific single-vineyard Cote Roties I tasted at Guigal this year, I’m most confident that this wine will ultimately reach perfection after bottling. The 2015 Cote Rotie La Landonne is incredibly rich and concentrated, yet it remains detailed and complex, with plum and cassis flavors accented by hints of pencil shavings, espresso, black olives, roasted meat and dark chocolate. Full-bodied and solidly built, it combines that power with a velvety feel and a nearly endless finish. Wow.
