2020 M. Chapoutier "La Mordorée" Côte-Rôtie (Pre-Arrival)

SKU #1549037 97-99 points Jeb Dunnuck

Outer quote mark The quality of this cuvée continues to be sky high, and I loved the 2020 Côte Rotie La Mordorée. Medium to full-bodied, utterly seamless, and as elegant as they come, it has already complex notes of black raspberries, smoked game, cassis, new leather, and some rocky mineral-like nuances. Made from 100% destemmed Syrah that’s still resting in 30% new barrels, it will have 20-25 years of longevity. Inner quote mark (2/2022)

94-96 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate

Outer quote mark As always, the 2020 Cote Rotie la Mordorée is a blend of two adjacent parcels: one in La Côte Blonde and one in La Côte Brune. Menthol, blueberries and raspberries appear on the nose of this full-bodied, concentrated but seemingly weightless effort. Fine and silky in feel, it finishes long and elegant. It should be approachable within a few years and drink well for up to two decades. (JC) Inner quote mark (1/2022)

93 points Decanter

Outer quote mark Saturated colour, a very ripe and expressive style. There's a juiciness on the palate from the fruit, and plenty of sweet, ripe tannins. The alcohol is a little warming here, the fruit very ripe. All very well integrated, this sample feels decidedly embryonic, with considerable oak influence, giving further sweet vanilla and spice. Will be very good in time, in a fairly modern, ripe, oaky style. This will be seductive in youth, but I would wait before opening this for the terroir to come forward. (MW) Inner quote mark (6/2021)
