2004 - E. Guigal, Assortment (Mouline, Turque, Landonne)
- Cote Rotie
- 95 WA; 90 RP; 94 WA
One of the most elegant and ready-to-drink la Landonnes in the past 10-12 years is the 2004 Cote Rotie la Landonne. Already perfumed and complex, with beautiful smoked beef, rose petals, forest floor and sweet dark fruits, it almost has a Pinot Noir-like elegance and seamlessness. Medium to full-bodied, concentrated, and with nicely integrated acidity, drink it anytime over the coming decade.
While certainly an outstanding wine, the 2004 Cote Rotie la Turque is a more streamlined, medium-bodied, elegant example of this cuvee. It offers a touch of herbacousness as well as lots of smoked meats, coffee bean and truffle, ripe tannin and solid overall balance. It’s mature, but will drink well for another decade.
More open and evolved, yet still a textbook and perfumed example of the cuvee, the 2004 Cote Rotie la Mouline possesses beautiful spice, potpourri, pepper and cured meats to go with plenty of red and black fruit, medium to full-bodied richness and an overall beautifully balanced feel. Drinking nicely now, it has another 10 to 15 years of evolution.
