Professional Reviews For This Wine


Rhone Book(1997) | Rating: 99

The 1991 La Landonne will provide multimillionaires with plenty of pleasure over the next 20 years. They can also debate whether it or the perfect 1990 is the better wine. The 1991's bouquet offers huge, smoky, new saddle leather, licorice, Asian spice, meaty, and cassis scents. Black in color, with layers of richness, huge body, massive extraction, and a phenomenal finish, it is another legend from Marcel Guigal. It will be the least precocious of the 1991s, needing until the turn of the century to open and develop; it should keep for 25-30 + years. Last tasted 6/96.

International Wine Cellar | Rating: 96(+?)

Deep ruby-red to the rim. Supersweet, exotic aromas of fruitcake, sweet butter, maple syrup and coconut. Extremely concentrated and thick, but quite backward today; still dominated by its structure. Strong notes of iron and brown spices from the darker soils. Finishes with palate saturating tannins and an exotic, roasted flavor that shows extraordinary persistence.

Wine Spectator | Rating: 95

Deep and muscular, this is the most concentrated and tannic of the '91s. It's meaty, smoky and spicy, with ripe plum flavors. Drink beginning in 2000.--Guigal Cote-Rotie vertical.

Very deep – the youngest looking, deepest and bluest of the three Guigal 1991s. Some oak still there. Still very, very dense and tough and oaky. The least evolved, but very good.

About This Producer


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.

Wine Varietal: Syrah


While the rest of the world is calling it "Syrah," Australia and South Africa stick to "Shiraz," their name for the same grape. Previously it was thought that the name Shiraz originated from a city in Persia where the Syrah grape was believed to have originated. Recently U.S. and French researchers demystified the name debate when they discovered that the Syrah grape was indigenous to France. Intense, robust and sometimes referred to as "manly," Syrah grows principally in the Northern Rhone. The spicy, peppery grape also grows abundantly in Australia, South Africa, and California, where it takes on a softer, thicker character than its French version. Typical descriptors for Syrah include blackberry, dark chocolate, mint, eucalyptus, smoked meat, black pepper, liquorice, and cloves.
