"I was blown away by the completeness of the 2016 Cote Rotie la Landonne from barrel. Incredible floral aromas bring both violets and roses to mind, plus layers of raspberry fruit and complex spice notes. It's medium to full-bodied with a terrific, silky mouthfeel and a long, long finish. Drink: 2021-2040. 97-99 points

I was greeted by Pierre Rostaing, who is increasingly present at the domaine. Pierre studied in Montpellier and has been managing the family's Languedoc estate, so it is no surprise that he's taking on more importance here in Côte-Rôtie. He points out that while 2016 had a wet, difficult beginning, the weather was cooperative after mid-June and it ended up being "a very nice vintage." Unlike recent years it was relatively late, with harvest starting on September 22 and concluding October 9. The 2016s are classically proportioned and silky in style, without lacking depth or richness. In addition to the wines reviewed below, I also tasted barrels from Viallière and Neve, which Rostaing said might be sold as additional single-parcel wines. Finally, while the 2016s look extremely promising from barrel, the stars here are the wines from 2015, which combine incredible power with seamless elegance."
