Vintages 2015

BETTANE+DESSEAUVE

Score : 20/20

Le plus harmonieux et le plus raffiné de toutes les vins du domaine dans ce millésime, un tannin de grande classe et une finale persistante sur le chocolat et les herbes aromatiques, un toucher velouté d’un grand charme et un grand potentiel d’évolution en bouteille.

Score : (97-100)

The 2015 Côte Rôtie La Landonne is another wine that has perfection written all over it. Made in a more backward, concentrated, structured style, its inky purple color is followed by a mammoth bouquet of smoked black fruits, charcoal, camphor, and graphite, with more meaty notes developing with time in the glass. With a finish that won’t quit, this locked and loaded, full-bodied beast of a wine will be for patient consumers with cold cellars. It’s going to take a decade or more for it to be drinkable, but it might just be a 5- to 6-decade wine.

 

WINE ADVOCATE

Score : (98 - 100)

Of all the terrific single-vineyard Cote Roties I tasted at Guigal this year, I’m most confident that this wine will ultimately reach perfection after bottling. The 2015 Cote Rotie La Landonne is incredibly rich and concentrated, yet it remains detailed and complex, with plum and cassis flavors accented by hints of pencil shavings, espresso, black olives, roasted meat and dark chocolate. Full-bodied and solidly built, it combines that power with a velvety feel and a nearly endless finish. Wow.

 

WINE SPECTATOR

Score : 99

Almost brooding, with warm dark currant, fig and blackberry paste flavors simmering at the core, while waves of ganache, espresso, roasted mesquite and juniper flow through and around them. All the elements are pulled through a seriously long finish by a bolt of smoldering cast iron. This should age glacially. Best from 2025 through 2050. 175 cases imported. — JM
