Cote Rotie La Landonne Guigal 1995
Founded in 1946, Domaine Guigal is one of the most revered and unwaveringly consistent estates in the Rhône Valley and is often seen as a benchmark for quality Côte-Rôtie. The top three wines from Guigal are known affectionately in some circles as the La La’s, which is short for La Landonne, La Mouline and La Turque. La Landonne made its debut in 1978 and is produced from 2 hectares of Syrah on the Côte Brune, vinified in stainless steel and aged in 100% new French oak for up to 42 months. Typically full-bodied and incredibly savoury, the 1995 exudes wonderful notes of black fruits, woodsmoke, tar, game, crushed stones and black pepper. Though perfect to drink now this will age at least another 5-10 years.
