Tasting Notes

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.

The 2018 Côte Rôtie La Mordorée comes from the La Côte Brune and the Côte Blonde lieux-dits and is brought up in demi-muids, roughly 35% being new. Black raspberries, currants, cured meats, new leather, and Asian spice notes all define the bouquet. Full-bodied, powerful, and opulent on the palate, it has lots of tannins, loads of fruit, and a great finish.
