Professional Reviews

Antonio Galloni

AG 95-96
"Ripe, smoke-tinged dark berries and pungent floral scents are brightened by building mineral and spice flourishes. Spicy and impressively concentrated on the palate, offering energetic blackberry and violet pastille flavors, along with exotic spice and cracked pepper nuances. Fleshes out with air while maintaining vivacity, and finishes extremely long and chewy, displaying excellent clarity, steadily mounting tannins and suave florality." -Josh Raynolds

Robert Parker

RP 96-98
"For the 2018 Cote Rotie la Landonne, Pierre Rostaing put together a blend from two barrels. Wow. Toast and mocha notes frame raspberries and blueberries in this medium to full-bodied offering. It's simultaneously rich, silky and concentrated. Packed with flavor and depth, it looks as if it will be approachable within a couple of years yet be capable of evolving for a couple of decades." -Joe Czerwinski

"Closed nose. Vivid black-cherry fruit with superb definition and clarity on the palate. Bitter herby, stemmy notes on the finish, which give an appetising crispness. Some raspberry and redcurrant fruit add to the complexity." -Richard Hemming

Decanter

"There is a good sense of freshness to the aromatics here - juniper and a touch of black pepper, with a dense tannic base, very plush in texture, with exceptional finesse. It has a long finish and no excessive alcohol. A relatively fruity and approachable La Landonne this year. The winemaking at Domaine Rostaing is now in the hands of René's son Pierre, and it follows the same format for all the Côte-Rôties: four weeks in tank, 18 months in oak, limited new oak, natural yeasts, and as many stems as possible - 100% in this case. Picked around 6th Sept, early for the appellation. Drinking Window 2026 - 2040." -J C Cottle

Wine Spectator

WS 95
"Seductive up front, with dark currant and blackberry details that have melded nicely with licorice root, sweet bay, dark olive and tar accents. Finish is grippy, but has cut and drive, thanks to an iron note and nicely imbedded acidity." -James Molesworth
