La Landonne, Cote-Rotie, Guigal. 2002. Brief.

"Out of this world" Cote-Rotie. The grape is Shiraz, but the Appellation allows up to 20% Viognier. Very spicy, very aromatic, lots of tannins, long finish, and very high price. Needs oxygen before serving. Medium term.
La Landonne is one of the most prestigious vineyards in the region.
