2010 E. Guigal "La Landonne" Côte-Rôtie 3-Pack in OWC (Pre-Arrival)

SKU #1431215 100 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate

Outer quote mark As with the other two single-parcel Cote Roties, the 2010 Cote Rotie La Landonne is pure perfection in a glass. An incredibly massive, muscular, full-bodied effort, it has an insane amount of structure to go with an equal amount of concentrated fruit. Cassis, smoked bacon, coffee bean, cracked pepper and liquid rock-like qualities are all present here, and it hits the palate with a chiseled, focused textured, building tannin and terrific length. It’s the most backward of the 2010s and will require a decade of cellaring, but will keep for about as long as you’d like to hold onto bottles. (JD) Inner quote mark (12/2014)

99 points Wine Enthusiast

Outer quote mark *Cellar Selection* Dense and rich but also incredibly complex, long and elegant, this is a momumental Côte-Rôtie. It’s darkly fruited and superripe, yet doesn’t lose its essential sense of terroir, remaining marked by scents of pepper and espresso to go with the chocolate and cassis fruit. Velvety in texture, this is the one of Guigal’s 2003 Côte-Rôties that demands a few years of cellaring. Inner quote mark (9/2007)

99 points Wine Spectator

Outer quote mark *Collectibles* Terrifically dense, with tightly coiled flavors of warm ganache, fig paste and blackberry confiture. Shows plenty of range as well, with well-embedded notes of bay leaf, chestnut, juniper, black tea and charcoal. This is intensely grippy through the lengthy, fine-grained finish. Should age marvelously and slowly. Inner quote mark (10/2014)

96 points Stephen Tanzer's International Wine Cellar

Outer quote mark Glass-staining ruby. Potent smoke- and spice-accented black and blue fruit aromas are complicated by sexy potpourri and incense nuances that build with aeration. Sweet, penetrating blackberry and cherry liqueur flavors stain the palate, with licorice pastille and violet qualities coming in slowly. Rich yet lively and precise, finishing with outstanding energy and chewy tannins that frame the wine's lush, alluringly sweet fruit. Inner quote mark (2/2015)

Jancis Robinson

Outer quote mark Crackling and lively but awfully firm and rigid. Inky and heavy charge of tannins. Cherche le fruit! A solid phenolic marvel this, but boy will you have to wait! Dry and dense – not made for super tasters. To admire rather than savour. Monument rather than a drink! 18/20 points. Inner quote mark (12/2011)
