A 2.1 hectare site planted entirely with Syrah, La Landonne has been produced since 1978. Guigal acquired the vineyard from numerous small owners, building his holding parcel by parcel over a decade. The vineyard is on one of the steepest of the Côte Brune, a 45 degree slope on pure schist. This is often the most tannic and structured of the Cote Roties, and can take decades to reveal its true potential.
"An absolute monster as well as a candidate for perfection, the 2007 Cote Rotie La Landonne was vinified with 100% stems (whereas the 2007 La Turque was completely destemmed). The result is an opaque purple-colored wine displaying beautiful aromas of camphor, incense, balsamic notes, blackberries, cassis and an ethereal, subtle graphite character. Terrific intensity, a full-bodied mouthfeel and stunning length make for an exquisite wine that will benefit from 4-5 years of cellaring, and last for 40-50 years. 98-100 Points
The Wine Advocate
"This is very backward, with smoldering tobacco and charcoal up front, holding the dense core of black currant, anise and hoisin sauce at bay for now. Sage, sweet tapenade and bittersweet cocoa all roll as the grip takes over on the back end. Terrifically gutsy, with a charcoal- and singed iron-filled finish. Best from 2013 through 2026."
"Glass-staining purple. The wildest and most exotic nose of this set of '07s, offering dark berry preserves, cherry-cola, tarragon and incense along with slow-building notes of black pepper and Asian spices. The sweet, palate-staining black raspberry and cherry compote flavors are enlivened by juicy acidity and framed by velvety tannins that are quickly absorbed by the fruit. Finishes with superb clarity and persistent notes of floral pastilles and allspice. 94-97 Points"
