2007 m. chapoutier, cote rotie, la mordoree

Why We're Buying

Greatness is commonplace for M. Chapoutier Côte Rôtie La Mordorée. The syrah from the northern tip of the Rhône Valley has plenty of charm with a firm concentration of black fruit flavors. Give this red wine a few years of cellaring to unlock its full potential.

Robert Parker's Wine Advocate

The more closed, dark ruby/purple-colored 2007 Cote Rotie La Mordoree exhibits tart acidity as well as a cooler, greener mouthfeel. Notions of bay leaf, green olives, black cherries, incense, and licorice are found in this pure, rich 2007. While outstanding, it is less impressive than the 2006, but it, too, should evolve for 15+ years. Range: 90-93

Wine Spectator

This has good depth and grip, with a strong briary edge carrying the iron, black olive, maduro tobacco, bittersweet cocoa, mulled plum and black cherry notes. The tangy finish has solid length.
