Eye: Red black with deep dark tints. Nose: Small black fruits, liquorice and roasted notes and oriental spices. Powerful and intense aromas. Palate: Powerful attack with important tannic structure. Rich and concentrated. Fully expressive of the terroir. Overall: Great ageing potential, structured and concentrated with a rare intensity of flavour and colour.

Wine AdvocateAs with the other two single-parcel Cote Roties, the 2010 Cote Rotie La Landonne is pure perfection in a glass. An incredibly massive, muscular, full-bodied effort, it has an insane amount of structure to go with an equal amount of concentrated fruit. Cassis, smoked bacon, coffee bean, cracked pepper and liquid rock-like qualities are all present here, and it hits the palate with a chiseled, focused textured, building tannin and terrific length. It's the most backward of the 2010s and will require a decade of cellaring, but will keep for about as long as you'd like to hold onto bottles.

Wine SpectatorTerrifically dense, with tightly coiled flavors of warm ganache, fig paste and blackberry confiture. Shows plenty of range as well, with well-embedded notes of bay leaf, chestnut, juniper, black tea and charcoal. This is intensely grippy through the lengthy, fine-grained finish. Should age marvelously and slowly. Best from 2017 through 2040. 600 cases made.
