Wine Advocate Author: Robert Parker Issue: 113

Chapoutier makes no bones about the fact that he prefers his 1996 Cote Roties to his 1995s. Wealthy readers with access to Chapoutier's wines will have fun determining whether the 1995 or 1996 Cote Rotie La Mordoree is the superior wine. Both are terrific examples of Cote Rotie with 20-25 years of evolution. Chapoutier prefers the 1996. The 1995 is a superb wine, but I am not sure the 1996 isn't a point or two better. Both wines possess intensely-saturated black/purple colors, and smoky, black raspberry, coffee, and chocolate-scented noses with black olives thrown in for complexity. The 1996 may have greater length, but that is splitting hairs at this level of quality. Both are medium to full-bodied, rich, extraordinary examples of Cote Rotie that possess power as well as finesse. Both will require cellaring to reveal their personalities.

Wine Spectator Author: Per-Henrik Mansson

Riper and more concentrated than many wines of the vintage, this shows deep violet color, with expressive toasted aromas and dense, chewy flavors of cassis, blackberry and spice. It's a bit clumsy now, but should unwind and harmonize by 2000.

Wow. Terrific nose of marshmellow and liquer. This wine has multiple layers of licorice, cocoa and dark fruit. Nice finish. While still evolving it is difficult to delay drinking now.
