1989 Guigal “La Landonne” Côte-Rôtie

It’s a great example of what Guigal can do in a year that gives him the right material. Besides the toasty oaky-doaky, the Landonne has delicious black fruit and bacon, well-integrated into the wood. Sometimes that happens, sometimes not. In ’89, it happened. The hallmark rich texture pumps the flavors all the way down to the very back of the tongue. First-rate Landonne power-wine. Nummers.
