Rene Rostaing 2009 Cote Rotie "La Landonne," Rhone Valley, France
Vinous.com rating: 94..."Bright ruby. Black and blue fruits on the nose and palate, with an array of spice and floral qualities adding dimension. Rich but very lively, with impressive intensity and concentration but no sense of heaviness. Supple tannins add shape to the extremely long finish, which features notes of star anise, candied violet and cracked pepper."
