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.

Blackberry on the nose with cedar wood, sweet tobacco, and juniper berry (dead on, actually - I compared it with freshly crushed juniper berries!) Some old oak/woody notes as well. On the palate there is more blackberry and herbaceous notes with tannin and softly balanced acidity. Good length. I like this wine but I'd rather see more developing "layers" mid palate...this one seems to fall a little flat in the middle. Good value though.

This is a grenache/syrah blend. Blackberry/fresh fruit on the nose is really matched by woody notes of sweet tobacco, cedar wood, and juniper berry (as an experiment...I compared the smell of this wine to the smell of crushed juniper berries, and I thought the match was right on). Definitely has some herbaceous qualities with the tannin and softly balanced acidity. Good length but I thought this wine fell a little flat in the middle. I was surprised that this wine has 14% alcohol, I never would have guessed that based on the tasting.

The 2011 Cote Rotie La Mordoree is an outstanding success in this more challenging vintage for Cote Rotie. Raspberry spring flowers licorice forest floor and underbrush notes emerge from this attractive medium-bodied elegant delicious Cote Rotie. It should be consumed during its first decade of life. -Robert Parker Robert Parkers Wine Advocate.

The 2011 Cotes du Rhone Belleruche exhibits classic framboise notes, a light, vibrant, fluorescent pink color, excellent texture and a dry finish.

Amazing value from a famed Châteauneuf-du-Pape producer. The 2011 Côtes du Rhones are generally soft and fruit-forward, but Chapoutier manages to insert the complexity and earthiness for which they are famed. The added depth makes this a more sophisticated version of your favorite go-to pairing red.

This wine is garnet red in color. On the nose, aromas of red fruits, mainly morello cherries, and spices, like licorice and grey pepper. This wine has a great structure with firm and silky tannins.
