Guigal la Landonne Cote Rotie 2009
Spicy and perfumed nose filled with rich berry fruit. Also, aromas of wet stone and turned soil. Spicy berry. Has meaty richness, blueberries, black raspberries, crushed rock and flowers. Opulent and dense with an oily texture. Rich in concentrated fruit. Powerful and dense but has finesse. Pepper, charcoal and herb notes as well. Best with food. 91 pts. 11/3/12
Great flavor at a terrific price. Full but not too fruity.
Juicy, rich, red berries, spice + dusty oak with a smooth & silky finish - delicious!
Dark chocolate, cherry
External Reviews for Guigal la Landonne Cote Rotie
A dark, roasted style, with tasty fig, currant paste and espresso flavors backed by a note of melted licorice on the finish. Shows a nicely gutsy edge too. Drink now.
Full with a long finish and plenty of elegance and finesse due to the well balanced tannins and fruit.
The exceptional 2009 Crozes-Hermitage is one of the top wines of the vintage. A complex bouquet of black olives licorice ground beef spring flowers and red and black currants soars from the glass of this 100% Syrah that is aged in 3-year-old barrels as well as larger foudres. With remarkable density this evolved approachable delicious full-bodied Crozes should drink well for a decade. Robert Parkers Wine Advocate.
This is entirely savory, all toasted almond, mineral and salt, an austere Crozes that stands out for its steadfast flavor and firmness. Decant it for veal stew with mushrooms.
Deep ruby. Ripe deeply smoky aromas of black and blue fruits and candied flowers. Dense ripe and appealingly sweet in the mouth but sappy blackberry and violet pastille flavors that show impressive energy. Finishes on a peppery note with excellent clarity and suave harmonious tannins. Stephen Tanzers IWC.
Bright ruby. Spicy cherry and dark berries on the nose, with deeper olive and black tea notes adding complexity. Blackberry and bitter cherry flavors are given lift and focus by gentle acidity and pick up a floral nuance with air. Finishes with zesty spicy lift and lingering sweetness. More structured than the vast majority of 2009 Rhones, from any category.
A savory Syrah, notes of red meat, salty brine (green olives, specifically) and tart fruits (currants, under-ripe plums) can all be found here. Full-bodied, with chewy (om-nom-nom) tannins and notes of mushroom and earth, this is best served with something equally as chewy and delicious.
