Cote Rotie La Landonne, Etienne Guigal 2001
This wine has now sold out. To register your interest please contact us at email@example.com and we will notify you when it is back in stock.
The 2001 Cote Rotie La Landonne exhibits scents of new saddle leather, black truffles, melted road tar, vanilla, blackberries, and licorice in a primitive/Neanderthal style with huge tannin, intense concentration, and nearly mouth-searing firmness and toughness. Extremely powerful, rich, and backward, it will be drinkable between 2011-2030.

More intensity on the nose than La Mouline 2001 with blackberry, black truffle and kirsch. Very smooth entry on the silky palate, decadent with seamless tannins. Moderate acidity with notes of black cherry, iodine and blueberry. Like drinking an fermented Armani. Very impressive. Tasted November 2005.

Captivating aromas of plum cake, hoisin sauce and warm Valrhona chocolate lead the way for this seductive red that has raspberry, blackberry and fig fruit riding atop espresso, graphite and mineral flavours. Powerful tannins and a racy acidity combine forces on the finish for a remarkably elegant impression. Best from 2008 through 2030.
