  • Wine Advocate | Rating: 92

    All the single vineyard wines have turned out to be exceptional in 1992, far better than I expected when I tasted them prior to their astonishing 40 month sojourn in 100% new oak casks. These wines are bottled with no fining or filtration, and as Guigal says, |have the lowest SO2 levels measurable in France| - a testament, he believes, to his vinification, elevage in new oak, and, most importantly, the nature of Syrah. The 1992 Cote Rotie La Landonne is the densest, most savage, and animal-like of the three single-vineyard cuvees. Made from a vineyard on the steep hillside on the Cote Brune, this dark ruby/purple-colored wine reveals copious quantities of sweet black fruits in the nose intermingled with Asian spices, roasted herbs, and grilled steak. Medium to full-bodied, powerful, and rich, with some noticeable tannin, this wine is approachable because of its low acidity. It has turned out to be another exceptional example of La Landonne. Drink it over the next 15 years.

    Toast and coffee flavors dominate the black cherry and plum notes in this big, firm red. It's very tannic and quite closed now, and though it shows impressive concentration, it may lack the balance to improve with age.

  • Marcel Guigal - the so-called "pivot" of the Cote-Rotie appellation - is both an owner and negociant, and vinifies over 40% of all Cote-Rotie. His father, Etienne, started out quite modestly in 1946, and over the next decades the company has grown to encompass all that is best in the Rhone Valley. Not only known for the massive hits in Hermitage and Cote-Rotie, the Guigal name is synonymous with quality all along the scale, from the humble Cotes-du-Rhone to the Big Three - La Landonne, La Mouline and La Turque.
