2016 domaine rostaing, cote rotie, la landonne
Why We're Buying
Definition. Lushness. Energy. They come together to form to Domaine René Rostaing Côte-Rôtie La Landonne. The syrah reinforces why the estate is among the most well-regarded producers in the appellation, along with Maison Guigal. If you invest in this boozy red wine, give it at least five years to develop.
Robert Parker's Wine Advocate
Subtle notes of baking spices frame hints of tea, olives and raspberries on the nose of the 2016 Cote Rotie la Landonne. A paragon of elegance, it's medium to full-bodied, but silky from start to lingering finish. It's a wine that's pretty much guaranteed to make even the steeliest curmudgeon smile, as it's so bright, ephemeral and luscious. It's not the rich, ripe wine the 2015 is, but it's suave, complex and long.
