  • the crown jewel of Etienne Guigal, the largest producer in Rhone
  • the famous La-La-La (together with La Turque and La Mouline) are frequently on the to-buy list of wine collectors given their high quality and small volume
  • La Landonne is only 2.1 hectare in size, with 100% Syrah and producing only 800-1000 cases per annum
  • to drink or not to drink? drink perfectly now? YES; last for another decade? SURE
  • best price in town, any La-La-La would easily be >$3,000, let alone a RP98 pointer ready for immediately enjoyment

"The great glories of this house are its Cote Roties, of which there are now five separate offerings. The single-vineyard 1994s were singing loudly when I saw them in July. All of them scored significantly higher than they did during the two previous years, which is not unusual as Guigal's upbringing (elevage) of the wines results in better examples in the bottle than in cask. All three wines flirt with a perfect score. At this tasting, they reminded me of Guigal's 1982s - opulent, sumptuously-textured, forward, rich, precocious, flattering wines that will drink well throughout their lives. The fabulous 1994 Cote Rotie La Landonne, which is more dominated by toasty new oak than La Mouline and La Turque, is extremely muscular and powerful, with high tannin as well as fabulous extract. The wine reveals a dense, black/purple color, and a tight nose with plenty of pain grille, olive, iron, and black fruit aromas. Thick and generous, but structured, this is a wine to put away for 4-5 years."

"International in style, with plenty of new oak flavors--from violet to spicy, toasted mocha. Beneath the wood blanket is a soft pillow of blackberry, cassis and black cherry. Makes a seductive package if you like wines so obviously oaky. The terroir seems to get lost in translation, though. Full-bodied, it needs time."
