Other Reviews....
The 2017 Cote Rotie La Landonne is 100% whole cluster, yet the stemminess—at the moment—is represented on the nose as just the merest hint of fresh pea shoots. As always, La Landonne is a bastion of strength and power, with dark flavors that range from black cherries and plums to smoke, roasted meat and on into mocha and espresso. Full-bodied and densely concentrated, with a long, long finish, it's the most impressive of Guigal's single-vineyard Cote Roties this vintage. Drink 2025 - 2045.

Joe Czerwinski - Wine Advocate (Feb 2022)

Deep-pitched black currant, blueberry, cherry, floral and licorice scents are complemented by suggestions of smoky bacon, olive and allspice. Broad and deeply concentrated, offering palate-staining black/blue fruit, violet pastille, cola and exotic spice flavors that turn livelier as the wine slowly stretches out. Brawny yet energetic as well, showing superb definition and mineral thrust on a strikingly long, chewy finish that's given grip by solid but harmonious tannins.

Josh Raynolds - Vinous

A ripe, sexy nose of smoked game, truffly earth, chocolate, and jammy black and blue fruits emerge from the 2017 Côte Rôtie La Landonne. Made from 100% Syrah from the schist soils of the La Landonne lieu-dit, aged four years in oak, this massive, full-bodied 2017 shows the sexier, riper style of the vintage, yet it has incredible tannins, a deep, layered mid-palate, and nothing out of place. It will be interesting to see if it hits the heights of past great vintages, such as 2015, 2010, 2009, 2005, or 2003, but it’s certainly in the same ballpark.
