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
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. Wine & Spirits.
The best Gigondas from Guigal that I have ever tasted will certainly be the 2007, which is still aging in tank and large wood vats. His general blend here is about 55andndash;60% Grenache, around one-third Mourvedre and the rest Syrah. This remarkable Gigondas is scheduled to be bottled within the next several months. Dense plum/purple, with notes of garrigue, crushed rock, blueberry, and black raspberries, the wine is full-bodied, with stunning purity, a multi-layered texture, and a long finish. It should drink nicely for 10andndash;15+ years.
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.
Perfumed, with nicely integrated grip that focuses the lovely mulled plum, black currant, licorice snap and black tea notes. The long, silky finish features a lingering hint of iron. Drink now through 2014.
There are 3.5 million bottles of the 2009 Cotes du Rhone red, which represents an amazing value. A blend of 50% Syrah, 40% Grenache and 10% Mourvedre, it comes primarily from the Plan de Dieu (Plain of God), which is situated northeast of Chateauneuf du Pape. This tank-aged, deep ruby/purple-colored, concentrated, fleshy, medium to full-bodied, supple offering reveals plenty of pepper, kirsch and black currant fruit intermixed with a notion of flowers. It is meant to be consumed during its first 2–3 years of life although I have tasted 10-year-old bottles that are still holding together.
