2015 M. Chapoutier "La Mordorée" Côte-Rôtie (Pre-Arrival)

SKU #1278093 100 points Jeb Dunnuck

Outer quote mark 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. Inner quote mark (1/2018)

97 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate

Outer quote mark 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) Inner quote mark (12/2017)

97 points Wine Spectator

Outer quote mark A warm, plush style, with inviting raspberry, plum and blackberry compote flavors forming the core, while singed alder, black tea and loam accents roll underneath. A flash of minerality adds contrasting brightness and cut on the finish. Best from 2020 through 2040. (JM) Inner quote mark (9/2018)

96 points James Suckling

Outer quote mark Deep-set richness, polish and concentration here. This powerful Côte-Rôtie delivers an array of ripe, dark berries and plums on the nose with a very intense array of minerals and spices. The palate has density and power with purity and focus. Long, intense, vibrant and fresh. Long, lingering, spicy, black fruit. From organically grown grapes. This will age well. Drink in 2022. Inner quote mark (7/2018)

94 points Vinous

Outer quote mark Dark purple. Spice- and mineral accented dark berry preserve, olive, vanilla and floral pastille aromas show excellent clarity and pick up licorice and cola nuances with air. Sappy and deeply concentrated on the palate, offering sweet boysenberry and cherry liqueur flavors sharpened by a zesty cracked pepper flourish. Powerful yet impressively energetic, delivering superb finishing clarity and velvety tannins that sneak in late to add shape and subtle grip. (JR) Inner quote mark (4/2018)
