The nearly perfect 1997 Cote Rotie La Landonne is an amazing achievement for the vintage. An astonishing saturated purple color is followed by scents of licorice roasted meats coffee toasty oak plums and blackberries. The wine is extremely smoky earthy and terroir-driven. This 1997 offers exceptional expansiveness on the palate sweet tannin low acidity and a ripe robust finish. One to three years of cellaring is warranted but it is capable of lasting for two decades.

A blockbuster. Lots of oak here with a petrol tar mocha cigar smoke character but also amazing sweet and ripe fruit focused on blackberry currant and fig. Full-bodied and inky-black with a huge finish. One for the cellar... A blockbuster. Lots of oak here with a petrol tar mocha cigar smoke character but also amazing sweet and ripe fruit focused on blackberry currant and fig. Full-bodied and inky-black with a huge finish. One for the cellar. Drink now through 2025. 830 cases made. -PM

Spicy high-pitched aromas of cassis black cherry licorice flint and tar. Densely packed but currently tightly wound and dominated by its structure. Shows a restrained sweetness and complicating hints of leather flint and tar. More tannic than the Mouline or Turque but here too the tannins are quite fine. Very long on the palate. A lovely expression of syrah from a very ripe year. 93-95 points
