Straight up stunning, the 2018 Côte Rôtie La Mordorée does everything right and is a borderline perfect Côte Rôtie readers should snatch up. Coming from the La Côte Brune and Côte Blonde lieux-dits, it’s 100% Syrah (I believe all destemmed) and was brought up in 35% new demi-muids. Incredible spice-laden black raspberry and mulberry fruits, notes of new leather, incense, and acacia flowers, full-bodied richness, sweet tannins, and no hard edges all make for a captivating 2018. It shows the ripe, sexy style of the vintage, yet it remains perfectly balanced and has an undeniable sense of elegance and nobility. Don't miss a chance to try this beauty. It offers loads of pleasure today yet is going to evolve for 20-25 years.
Always a blend of the Côte Blonde and Côte Brune lieux-dits, the 2018 Cote Rotie la Mordorée features scents of pencil shavings, raspberries and some tea-like florals. It's medium to full-bodied and silky-textured, but it's concentrated at the same time, with a long, crisp finish that hints at violets. (JC)
Rich and dark, with steeped plum and blackberry notes rolling through, wrapped around a cast iron note and backed by dark tobacco and warm tapenade accents on the finish. There's a strong ferrous feel throughout. Built for the cellar. Best from 2022 through 2038.
Deeply perfumed aromas of ripe black/blue fruits, licorice, exotic spices and olive on the intensely perfumed nose. Stains the palate with sappy black currant, boysenberry and candied violet flavors, and steadily picks up spiciness and a hint of minerality with aeration. Rich and weighty but energetic as well, finishing with excellent clarity, mounting tannins and strong, blue-fruit-driven tenacity. (JR)
