Critic's Notes

THE WINE ADVOCATE, 99+
The Wine Advocate Wine Advocate (234)

"Am I being stingy in only awarding Rostaing's 2015 Cote Rotie la Landonne 99+ points? This is a tremendous wine, showing immense richness and power without any apparent weight. Raspberries flood the palate in waves, accented by various spices in a wine that's intensely tannic yet never hard or astringent. Breathtaking stuff."

JOHN LIVINGSTONE-LEARMONTH - DRINK RHONE, *****
Drink Rhone drinkrhone.com

"The nose gives a firm air of ink, has a stately black-fruited aroma, very fresh black berries such as loganberry with licorice. It is all very tight and sealed. The palate coasts with stylish richness, tasty tannins, gives a real complete wheel of flavour, dark fruits, black jam, with fir, compact tannins. This is rocket wine—off we go from la terre to the sky in one glass ... showing a lot of promise."

WINE SPECTATOR, 96
Wine Spectator

"A broad and deep wine, filled with dark fig, blackberry and boysenberry compote flavors that are layered with graphite, warm ganache and smoldering tobacco flavors. A warm cast iron note echoes resoundingly through the finish, which is laden with serious grip."

JOSH RAYNOLDS - VINOUS MEDIA, 95
Vinous Media

"Deep-pitched, smoke- and spice-accented aromas of black currant and cherry compote, violet and incense take on a hint of exotic spices with air. Lush and expansive on the palate, offering concentrated black and blue fruit liqueur, licorice and spicecake flavors that are sharpened by a smoky mineral element. Becomes sweeter and livelier with air and finishes extremely long, featuring rounded tannins and lingering spiciness."
