    Robert Parker's Wine Advocate

    The prodigious 2010 Côte Rôtie La Landonne reveals a dense purple color along with a huge, impressive perfume of roasted meats, black currants, black raspberries and scorched earth. This 100% Syrah comes from vines planted on exceptionally steep slopes composed of schist and iron-like sub-soils. Some graphite also makes an appearance in this mineral-dominated, well-delineated, rich, intense wine.

    Dark and brooding in feel, with steeped olive, roasted beef, charcoal and bay leaf notes rolled around a core of plum, black currant paste and roasted fig. A terrific charcoal spine holds this together on the finish. Will need time to unwind in the cellar. Best from 2015 through 2030. 500 cases made.

    Inky ruby. Aromas and flavors of dark fruit preserves, candied flowers and smoky herbs, with a bright mineral nuance adding lift. Deeply pitched black and blue fruit flavors show serious depth and structure, picking up spiciness and an exotic floral quality on the back half. Chewy tannins give shape and grip to a strikingly long, powerful and spice-driven finish. Rostaing thinks that it would be a "grave mistake" to broach this wine in its youth and believes that it's 'for the most patient people, not those in a hurry.
