Winemaker Notes

The Wine’s Deep Color Is Underscored By Plummy Hues. A Complex Nose Shows Deep, Fruity Aromas With Hints Of Liquorice And Roasted Coffee. Endowed With A Dense And Silky Tannic Structure, This Is A Full, Fleshy Wine That Provides An Ample And Generous Palate. Its Lasting Finish Speaks Of Considerable Ageing Potential.

Pairs Well With Fine Meats, Roasted Beef, Water Games, Truffles, Spicy Stews.

Critical Acclaim

Wine Enthusiast – 97pts

Sun-Baked Garrigue And Smoky Notes Of Iron And Earth Accent Intensely Ripe Black Cherry And Cassis In This Wine. Made From 100% Syrah, It’s A Hulking Powerhouse Of Black-Fruit Flavors But Finessed By Firm Acidity And Fine, Integrated Tannins. Stunning Already It Should Improve Through 2036 And Hold Further.

Wine Spectator – 96pts

Alluring, With Warm Fruitcake And Black Tea Aromatics Leading Off For A Lush And Warm Core Of Crushed Plum, Cherry Reduction And Blackberry Pâte De Fruit Flavors. Despite The Showy Fruit Detail, There’s A Solid Iron Underpinning, With Pretty Floral Notes And Bright Energy Throughout. Best From 2023 Through 2038. 300 Cases Made, 188 Cases Imported.

James Suckling – 95pts

Compelling Purity And Depth Of Blackberries, Framed In Plenty Of Fresh, Mocha-Scented Oak. The Palate Continues In The Same Vein With Spicy, Meaty, Cherry, Plum And Mocha Flavors. Warm, Espresso Finish.

Decanter – 95pts

The First Vintage Of This Wine Was In 1997. It Has Resonant Côte-Rôtie Aromatics; Sylvan, Resinous, And More Vinous Than Many. It Is Medium To Full-Bodied, With Generous, Concentrated, Sweetly-Ripe Fruit, Very Fine Tannins And A Fine Seam Of Minerality That Extends Into The Long, Savoury Finish. A Serious Wine This, Very Well Balanced With Unmistakable Class From This Distinguished Site. Well-Judged Use Of Oak, This Is Harmonious Already. Impressive.

Jeb Dunnuck – 95pts

The 2016 Côte Rôtie La Landonne Is Another Forward, Charming, Balanced Beauty. Blackberries, Violets, Camphor, And Hints Of Acacia Flowers All Emerge From This Impressively Balanced Côte Rôtie. As With The 2017, There’s A Forward, Approachable Style Here, But It’s Seamless, Elegant, And Long. Both These Wines Are Much More Elegant And Forward Than Previous Vintages.
