Guigal, Cote Rotie Landonne
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.
