By Wine Spectator in 2004 (WS96)
Offers an amazing depth of smoky, espresso-flavored toast that is seamlessly interwoven with bittersweet Valrhona chocolate, black currant and fig fruit, and a great underlying minerality. Supersilky, with a floral finish. Equally lush and captivating on both the nose and palate–a rare feat. *Collectibles*

Another wine that’s drinking beautifully today is the 2000 Cote Rotie la Landonne. An upfront, perfumed, complex and ready-to-drink beauty, it offers sexy notes of smoked meats, olive, game, truffle and graphite. These give way to a full-bodied, elegant Cote Rotie that has no hard edges, a soft, forward feel and a great finish. It doesn’t have the sheer weight of density of a top year, but excels on its drinkability. It’s a beautiful wine.
