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.

Medium-deep garnet colour. Medium-pronounced nose of stewed fruit, fig, prune, mushroom. Dry with low acid, low-medium tannin, medium body. Red fruit and dark chocolate on the palate. Medium-good length. 100% Grenache, organic.

The real taste of Châteauneuf in a ’99 — this is a good effort in this vintage. Leather and game, curried grilled meat and smoke, plum and blackberry, all in a fresh, intense package. But it turns a bit harsh and tannic on the finish. Drink now through 2007.

Chapoutier s La Mordoree cuvee is produced from 75-80-year old Syrah vines planted in both the Cote Blonde and Cote Brune aged in 100% new oak casks and bottled with neither fining nor filtration. The 1999 Cote Rotie La Mordoree is the finest he has produced since the 1991 (two bottles drunk over the last six months confirm this fabulous wine s potential as it is just now beginning to emerge from a cloak of tannin). The 1999 has closed down since its pre-bottling tasting. The color is an inky

The 1999 Chateauneuf du Pape La Bernardine is an impressive, seductive, sexy effort. Notes of kirsch liqueur, pepper, and herbs jump from the glass of this 100% Grenache cuvee. Big, chewy, and fruit-driven, most readers will find it disarming and appealing. It should drink well for 10–15 years.

The nearly perfect 1999 Cote Rotie La Mordoree is profound stuff offering an uncanny balance of extraordinary power and richness allied to multiple layers of fruit. The acidity is low but the wine s pure fruit and freshness give it vibrancy and definition. Soaring aromas of blackberries cassis hickory smoke vanilla and espresso are followed by a full-bodied seamless prodigious wine. Anticipated maturity: 2001-2020. Robert Parkers Wine Advocate.

The real taste of Chandacirc;teauneuf in a andrsquo;99 andmdash; this is a good effort in this vintage. Leather and game, curried grilled meat and smoke, plum and blackberry, all in a fresh, intense package. But it turns a bit harsh and tannic on the finish. Drink now through 2007.
