2005 Côte-Rôtie La Landonne, René Rostaing
The nose was restrained when we tasted as the wine had recently been racked and assembled. The palate however revealed terrific intensity of black fruits. Bold, assertive almost thick in nature, the tannins are far more assertive here, yet finely-expressed and easily matched by the sheer volume of fruit. A mineral vein coarses through this wine, with its subtle leather, game and savoury undertones. A wine of serious potential, this is pure and finely poised.
