Reviews For This Wine


 
International Wine Cellar | 90

($210) Good bright, ruby-tinged red. Spicy aromas of currant, raspberry and woodsmoke. Fat, silky and full, with enticing sweetness. Very rich, fruity style, finishing with broad, sweet tannins and new oak notes of spice and caramel. Not especially vibrant but satisfying and long.

Last year I underrated the 2000 Cote Rotie La Mordoree, probably because I tasted the 2000s side by side with what was undoubtedly a great vintage in the northern Rhone, 1999. In any event, from bottle, this 2000 Cote Rotie is far better than it tasted from barrel. Offering up scents of white flowers, black olives, cassis, and roasted notes, it is a seamless effort with well-integrated acidity and tannin as well as a big, plush, concentrated style that will provide delicious up-front drinking.

About This Producer


This firm, founded in 1808, is the proprietor of 175 key acres of vines in five Rhone Valley appellations. Since the retirement of Max Chapoutier in 1989, his son Michel has revamped the winemaking process, and in doing so has elevated the stature of Chapoutier wines to rival some of the greatest in the region. The firm farms its vineyards biodynamically, and believes in the concept of monocepage, or the idea that each wine is produced entirely from a single grape variety. Chapoutier believes that blending mutes, rather than enhances, the character he seeks from his wines. Today the Chapoutier wines are considered benchmarks for the region, and other producers have begun to borrow the techniques and practices that Michel has been perfecting for nearly two decades. Perhaps Robert Parker, in his monumental book The World's Greatest Wine Estates, sums up the Chapoutier firm best: "A true biodynamically run estate since 1989, the objective has been to produce the purest and most natural expressions of terroir possible. Every decision is based on enhancing the characteristics of a wine's terroir, varietal character, and vintage trademark. In short, it is the earth that inspires this firm."
