Chapoutier Cote Rotie la Mordoree Syrah Wine 2012

External Review by JJ Buckley Fine Wines:

Inky ruby. Sexy intensely perfumed aromas of blackberry cherry-cola and violet with allspice cola and olive nuances building with air. Sweet and penetrating in the mouth showing a seamless texture and vibrant dark berry compote and violet pastille flavors. Finishes with excellent energy and focus leaving cola and smoky mineral notes behind. Stephen Tanzers IWC.

M. Chapoutier:
The name CHAPOUTIER is present in the Rhône Valley since 1808. In 1879, the distant ancestor Polydor CHAPOUTIER was the first to begin to buy vines, thus moving from the status of wine-grower of an estate to that of a viticulturist, a wine producer and a businessman. The pioneering spirit was already present in the family.

The 2012 Cote Rotie La Mordoree excels in the vintage with its perfumed aromatics and medium to full-bodied richness on the palate. Carrying plenty of mineral-laced black cherry and raspberry nuances intermixed with underbrush leather and bacon fat it possesses an understated elegance with superb purity of fruit fine tannin and a great finish. It should be at its best in a handful of years and evolve gracefully for 12-15 years or more. 93-95+ - Jeb Dunnuck Robert Parkers Wine Advocate.

Gritty and dry on the end. Transparent and lively. Sinewy. At the junction of Ctte Brune and Ctte Blonde. No Viognier. Almost brutally dry on the finish. Not as magic as their Ermitages. 17/20 Jancis Robinson.
