The Northern Rhône is home to a few super-expensive wines. Old vines difficult to work and self-imposed production limits, like the 1,000-case cap Guigal places on the three La-La wines (as they’re known), help to drive price up. This 100% Syrah from a single vineyard, called La Landonne (the other two La-Las are La Turque and La Mouline), not only has a track record spanning five decades, but the wines continue to pull collectors’ heart- and purse-strings. A relatively affordable $300 a bottle for the 2006 means La Landonne will continue to be a sought-after, affordable, ultra-premium wine. For other folks.
