E. Guigal 1998 La Landonne (Côte Rôtie)

This is almost certainly the most famous Côte Rôtie from the best vineyard in the appellation. It is a wine for power. Dry fruits and tanninc aromas give an immediate sense of structure and strength. On the palate, it is wild, savage almost, with huge tannins and untamed exotic perfumes. The wood—42 months in new wood—seems almost incidental to the power of the fruit. The aging potential is obviously enormous. Roger Voss
