Description

Côte-Rôtie ‘La Mordorée’ Chapoutier, Northern Rhône, France, 2012

Grape: Hand-picked 100% organic Syrah produced using biodynamic principles. Crop is entirely destemmed. Only free-run juice is vinified in concrete tank. Aged in 225l oak barrels for 14-18 months.

This is a very steep, terraced vineyard located on the border of the “Côte Blonde”. The soil is composed of chlorite and ferruginous mica-schists in loess depressions and earth veins. This is made from 100% Syrah (no blend with viognier). The 70 years old vines produce tiny yields. This is an ample, elegant, very well-structured wine. The aromas of raspberry, violet, spice, black olive, tapenade and rosemary develop into earthy and smoky notes typical of a great Côte-Rôtie.

"Very dark and intense, almost stewed! Lots of sweet fruit but also some recognisable northern Rhône Syrah leather character. Good energy. A bit sweeter than usual." 17/20 points, Jancis Robinson

Drink with small game such as pheasant or duck, tender red meat dishes in a red wine sauce, or soft cheeses.
