  • International Wine Cellar | Rating: 100

    ($250) Bright dark ruby, the deepest of these '99s. More sauvage aromas of black fruits, leather, game and black pepper; classic raw syrah berries. Extremely dense, full and sappy; this saturates every millimeter of the palate. A remarkably glyceral, thick wine with great clarity of flavor and verve. Extraordinary reverberating finish throws off notes of black fruits, brown spices, pepper and earth.

    Deep purple. These last three reds were served in the reverse order and gave us a lesson in the increasing concentration and oak influence of the wines over time. This was the most focussed. Deep purple. Extremely fresh and dense and energetic yet velvety. Some liquorice. Dramatic but a bit drying on the finish.

    For drinking today, it doesn't get better than the 1999 Cote Rotie la Landonne (the '99 la Mouline maybe). A monumental Cote Rotie, it offers an incredible perfume of cassis, licorice, smoked game and roasted herbs (among other things), full-bodied richness, a seamless texture and a finish that just won't quit. While a massive wine, with incredible concentration and density, this beauty is lively, elegant and weightless, with sweet, polished tannin. Perfumed and upfront on this occasion, it was served blind at the end of the retrospective and I actually thought it was the 1990.

  • Wine Spectator | Rating: 99

    Elegant and racy yet thick-textured, with ripe tannins melting on the palate. First whiff gives mocha-scented oak and chocolate, but then, in the mouth, the ripe but refined blackberry flavors kick in. A pleasure-and-agony finish marks your gustatory memory. Tempting now, but will hold for about two decades. Drink now through 2020. 830 cases made. —

  • 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.
