2010 Delas Frères Côte-Rôtie La Landonne Côte-Rôtie Wine Tasting Note

2010 Delas Frères La Landonne  (Côte-Rôtie) 96

Powerful, long, concentrated and intense, the wine is full bodied, richly textured and packed with perfectly ripe, dark red fruits. There is a purity to the fruits that stands out, and is made even better by the appearance of spice box notes, truffles, wet earth, licorice and pepper. Lay this down for another 6-10 years and this will be a superb wine.
