"Subtle hints of fresh pea shoots accent characteristic dark notes of roasted meat, espresso and black olives in the full-bodied 2018 Cote Rotie La Landonne. Rich, concentrated and velvety-textured, with ample length and plenty of ripe tannins on the finish, it should benefit from a decade or more of bottle age—once it gets there. It's a brooding beast of a Cote Rotie that serious collectors will want to have in their cellars." ~ (100) Joe Czerwinski, Robert Parker's Wine Advocate 2-10-2022

"Cask sample. So distinctive: the herby, stemmy element is absolutely shining, and the fruit seems more expressive than the La Turque and La Mouline. Strong coffee-grounds note on the palate, adding a smoky bitterness. Gritty tannins that give delicious grip. A great example." ~ (18.5) Richard Hemming, JancisRobinson.com 10-17-2019

"Aromas of ripe dark fruits, exotic flowers, smoked meat and olive paste pick up intense spice and pipe tobacco notes as the wine opens up. Stains the palate with concentrated black currant, bitter cherry, candied violet and dark chocolate flavors that are energized by building spice and mineral flourishes. Plays richness off energy with a deft hand and finishes extremely long and precise, delivering steadily mounting tannins and resonating floral and mineral notes." ~ (98) Josh Raynolds, Vinous 5-1-2020

"The 2018 Côte Rôtie La Landonne is another wine that’s going to be up at the top of the scale, and all three of these 2018s will be candidates for perfection. Always the biggest, richest wine of the three flagships, it’s inky hued and has a primordial nose of blackberries, cassis, and currants fruits as well as huge ground pepper, cured meats, espresso, and underbrush. As Landonne as Landonne gets, it’s full-bodied, has a dense, powerful mid-palate, masses of tannins, and is going to be just about immortal." ~ (100) Jeb Dunnuck, JebDunnuck.com 2-16-2022
