The 2018 Côte Rôtie Neve comes from the more schist soils in the northern part of the appellation and is also brought up in demi-muids. It has a slightly more vivid purple color as well as racy notes of crème de cassis, vanilla, crushed violets, and ample minerality. It's always more focused, chiseled, and structured than the Mordorée. Both 2018 Côte Rôties from Chapoutier are brilliant wines in the making.
Chapoutier's 2018 Cote Rotie Neve features stunning scents of violets, purple raspberries and cassis. It's full-bodied, rich and creamy-textured in the mouth, turning silky on the finish. Concentrated but elegant, it showcases the amazing potential of the Neve lieu-dit. (JC)
A deeply perfumed bouquet displays ripe red and blue fruits, exotic spices and incense, along with a strong mineral overtone. Alluringly sweet, penetrating black raspberry, blueberry, cherry, floral pastille and spicecake flavors show impressive focus and vivacity. Shows firm, spicy thrust on the persistent finish, which features smoothly integrated tannins and clinging floral and mineral notes. (JR)
This is gorgeous, lifted, precise and focussed with a lovely freshness. It has cinnamon and rose floral aromas and is exceptionally smooth with very fine tannins and well-balanced acidity. A piercing wine that is good now but will get better. The best vintage yet for this cuvée. (MW)
