Tasting Notes

The 2009 Cote Rotie La Landonne is a killer wine. An extravagant bouquet of black truffles, roasted meats, licorice, ground pepper, blackberries, scorched earth and camphor soars from this muscular, dense, over-the-top, serious, masculine La Landonne. Built like Arnold Schwarzenegger was two decades ago, this enormously concentrated bodybuilder of a wine should hit its prime in a decade, and last 40-50 years. This is no trivial boast as the debut vintage of La Landonne, the 1978, is just reaching full maturity at age 34. Drink 2022-2072

Score: 100Robert Parker, Wine Advocate (204), December 2012

Delivers a stunningly ripe, pure, polished bolt of plum confiture,
along with notes of anise, mocha, blueberry coulis, Black Forest
cake and espresso. The finish sports admirable grip for this ripestyled vintage, with a grounding rod of iron buried deeply. There's
fruit and muscle now, with minerality to burn while this is cellared.
Best from 2015 through 2040.
