Syrah Cote Rotie La Landonne

 ?̥ÌÎ_Flirting with perfection, the 2010 Cote Rotie La Landonne offers up scents of black truffles, incense, smoked game, creosote, spring flowers and black fruits. Full-bodied with mouth-staining tannin as well as mouth-saturating extract and richness, this powerful, strikingly intense 2010 is young and unevolved, but it is filled with potential. Interestingly, Jacques Grange told me this cuvee was made from 100% destemmed fruit. Forget this wine for 4-5 years, and drink it over the following three decades. 98+ points.?̥ÌÎ_ ?̥ÌÎ_(12/2012)

 ?̥ÌÎ_Glass-staining purple. A wild, exotically perfumed bouquet evokes black and blue fruit liqueur, potpourri and sandalwood, with notes of olive and smoked meat emerging with air. Broad, palate-staining black raspberry and vanilla flavors are given spine and lift by juicy acidity. Superbly clear, silky and sweet, with excellent finishing thrust and length. The tannins are smooth and harmonious.?̥ÌÎ_ ?̥ÌÎ_(4/2013)
