 Inky colored, the flagship 2015 Côte Rôtie La Mordorée is an utterly incredible wine any way you look at it and is a legendary Côte Rôtie in the making. Black raspberry, blackberry jam, toasted spices, dried flowers and cured meat notes give way to a sexy, full-bodied, ripe, and incredibly opulent 2015 that has sweet tannin, no hard edges and a huge finish. The fruit of the vintage, as well as the sweet tannin, allow this to offer pleasure even today, but it’s going to benefit from 5-6 years of bottle age and drink beautifully for 20-25 years.  (1/2018)

 Slightly lifted and herbal, the 2015 Cote Rotie la Mordorée concedes no precision to the heat of the vintage, offering olive, raspberry and mocha shadings while being full-bodied, plush and velvety yet vibrant on the long finish. Now this is exciting! (JC)  (12/2017)

93-95pts Vinous

 Deep lurid ruby. Potent, mineral-accented aromas of ripe dark berries, allspice, licorice and candied violet on the highly perfumed nose. Fleshy, seamless and broad on the palate, offering densely packed blackberry, cherry compote and fruitcake flavors sharpened by building spiciness and a spine of smoky minerality. Closes on a smoky note, delivering velvety, sneaky tannins, superb persistence and lingering florality.  (4/2017)
