2020 René Rostaing Côte-Rôtie La Landonne

Opaque ruby. Displays an array of intensely perfumed, mineral-accented black and blue fruit, floral, botanical herb and exotic spice aromas, along with suggestions of licorice, smoked meat and olive. Shows serious depth as well as unlike energy, offering palate-staining kirsch, cassis, bitter chocolate, olive paste and violet pastille flavours that slowly turn sweet and become more energic through the back half. Youthfully gripping tannins add grip to the smoky, mineral- and spice driven finish, which emphatically repeats the licorice and blue fruit notes.97 points, Josh Reynolds, Vinous.
