Still very youthful, this has a deep nose of smoke, bitter chocolate and herbal liqueur. The gigantic tannin structure on the palate will need many years of further aging to completely resolve, but the tannins are fine which gives the super-long finish an extraordinary texture, like old-fashioned velvet. So much smoke and crushed rock character! A pure syrah which is then fermented with 100% whole bunches. Matured in 100% new oak for 42 months. Drinkable now, but best from 2026, and even then you should decant it. ~ (97) James Suckling, JamesSuckling.com 5-22-2023

Cask sample, tasted at the domaine. This shows that peaty smoke ash-tinged (whole-bunch ferment) nose with cherries and a ferrous note. It has a wonderful grip to it, powerful and commanding – the freshness peppers the palate with a savoury twist and powerful firm finish. A baby. ~ (18.5) Alistair Cooper, JancisRobinson.com 10-16-2020

As always, the 2019 Côte Rôtie La Landonne is all Syrah that was not destemmed and will spend four years in new French oak. A wine with perfection written all over it, it's one of the most impressive barrel samples to ever pass this critic's lips. Deep purple/black-hued with a massive, full-bodied, brooding style, it has classic smoky, meaty black fruits, a touch of iron, graphite, tobacco, and pepper, building tannins, and a huge finish. This is pure brilliance in Syrah, yet as with just about every vintage here, it will require a solid decade of bottle age. ~ (100) Jeb Dunnuck, JebDunnuck.com 12-15-2022

The impenetrably dark 2019 Cote Rotie La Landonne represents the essence of this fabled lieu-dit, combining peppery, herbal notions with espresso and roasted meat, all carried by ample plum and black cherry fruit. It's full-bodied, concentrated, richly tannic and long on the finish—simply a superb wine that should be flirting with perfection when it is released in a couple of years. ~ (100) Joe Czerwinski, Robert Parker's Wine Advocate 2-10-2022
