Saturated ruby. An impressively complex nose evokes blackberry, dark chocolate, violet and cigar tobacco, with a strong spicy note emerging with air. Offers sweet, deeply pitched dark fruit compote and floral pastille... Saturated ruby. An impressively complex nose evokes blackberry, dark chocolate, violet and cigar tobacco, with a strong spicy note emerging with air. Offers sweet, deeply pitched dark fruit compote and floral pastille flavors that are given spine by juicy acidity. No way I'd guess from this wine's concentration that it was an '08. Finishes with superb persistence, lively notes of violets and black pepper and slow-building tannins. A really remarkable performance for the year.

Shows very impressive depth and concentration for the vintage, delivering brooding espresso, baker's chocolate, charcoal and singed iron notes intertwined with roasted fig and steeped plum fruit. A smoldering bay leaf... Shows very impressive depth and concentration for the vintage, delivering brooding espresso, baker's chocolate, charcoal and singed iron notes intertwined with roasted fig and steeped plum fruit. A smoldering bay leaf edge lingers on the very grippy finish. A superb effort in a difficult year. Best from 2013 through 2027. – JM

Vinified with 100% stems the 2008 Cote Rotie La Landonne reveals a somewhat unusual aroma of roasted nuts but with airing scents of coffee rustic saddle leather pepper smoked meats and spice begin to emerge. Medium-bodied... Vinified with 100% stems the 2008 Cote Rotie La Landonne reveals a somewhat unusual aroma of roasted nuts but with airing scents of coffee rustic saddle leather pepper smoked meats and spice begin to emerge. Medium-bodied and lighter than normal but still impressive it should be consumed over the next 12 years. -Robert Parker
