Wine Advocate 100 points - As with the other two single-parcel Cote Roties, the 2010 Cote Rotie La Landonne is pure perfection in a glass. An incredibly massive, muscular, full-bodied effort, it has an insane amount of structure to go with an equal amount of concentrated fruit. Cassis, smoked bacon, coffee bean, cracked pepper and liquid rock-like qualities are all present here, and it hits the palate with a chiseled, focused textured, building tannin and terrific length. It’s the most backward of the 2010s and will require a decade of cellaring, but will keep for about as long as you’d like to hold onto bottles.  (Dec 2014)

Wine Spectator 99 points - Terrifically dense, with tightly coiled flavors of warm ganache, fig paste and blackberry confiture. Shows plenty of range as well, with well-embedded notes of bay, chestnut, juniper, black tea and charcoal. This is intensely grippy through the fine-grained and lengthy finish. Should age marvelously and slowly. Best from 2017 through 2040. From France.J.M. (Aug 6 2014)
