Decanter Magazine

From the northern part of lieu-dit La Landonne, the plot was planted in 1975 to commemorate Philippe Guigal's birth. Guigal uses a tank that pumps over automatically using CO2 generated from fermentation. It's a dark, brooding, impenetrable wine for now on the nose - just a hint of bitter chocolate and black cherry can be coaxed out. It's full-bodied but not massive, with incredible tannic heft and power and serious extraction, finishing with remarkable length. There's a tiny touch of dryness and subtle bitterness, but years of barrel ageing remain ahead of it to help iron these out. It displays the trademark austerity of La Landonne, and is the most powerful young Guigal Landonne I've ever tasted. It's likely to be a complex, savoury, tannic style when it finally comes round - just don't drink it young. (Drink between 2030-2055)

In a completely different style, the more blockbuster, masculine style 2017 Côte Rôtie La Landonne sports a dense purple hue as well as quintessential Landonne notes of smoked meats, black fruits, scorched earth, and chocolate. Pure, focused, and remarkably delineated on the nose, it’s full-bodied and incredibly concentrated on the palate, with building tannins, perfectly integrated oak, and a monster of a finish. It’s going to require at least a decade to be drinkable

More marked by pepper and licorice than the 2016, Guigal's 2017 Cote Rotie La Landonne is also richer, rounder and longer. It's full-bodied, velvety in texture and offers a kaleidoscope of dark fruit flavors that gradually morph over the course of an almost never-ending finish. This vintage, La Landonne has it all. Drink 2025-2045.
