Côte Rôtie "La Landonne" is one of Maison Guigal's most famous bottles, an expression of one of the most prestigious parcels on the Ampuis estate. Together with the other two labels, "La Mouline" and "La Turque," it makes up the territory's most famous trilogy, appreciated by the greatest connoisseurs of Rhône Valley wines.

The child of a terroir with exceptional characteristics and a rigorous selection of grapes, from historic vineyards managed with very low yields, it represents a unique taste experience.
The Côte Rôtie red wine "La Landonne" is the fruit of the deep knowledge of the terroir of one of the most important family businesses in the Rhone Valley. Maison Guigal manages vineyards in the region's most celebrated Appellations, including Côte-Rôtie, Condrieu, Hermitage, Châteauneuf-du-Pape, Saint-Joseph, and Crozes-Hermitage, and produces wines that authentically express the characteristics of each individual terroir. The vineyards of the Côte Rôtie are cultivated on steep terraces that cut through the shale slopes rising from the Rhone. The splendid sunny positions, stony soils and the constant presence of the Mistral provide the ideal environment for Syrah. The "La Landonne" parcel is characterized by stony, clay-limestone matrix soils, rich in iron oxides. The vines have an average age of 35 years and produce only 35 hectoliters per hectare. After the harvest, fermentation takes place in temperature-controlled stainless steel tanks, with maceration on the skins for at least four weeks. Before bottling, the wine matures for 40 months in new oak barrels.
