A complex and balanced Côte-Rôtie red wine

The estate

Established since 1808 in Tain-L'Hermitage, M. Chapoutier today embodies the elite of Rhône Valley wines.

Winemaker and wine merchant, Michel Chapoutier has successfully brought this family-owned business to the very top. The wines by Maison Chapoutier are renowned by the finest connoisseurs from all around the world for their refinement and high quality. A man of many talents, Michel Chapoutier holds the world record for 100/100 scores awarded by the American critic, Robert Parker. Mathilde, Michel Chapoutier's daughter, has taken over the running of this iconic house, which has over 350 hectares of vineyards in the most prestigious appellations of northern and southern Rhône Valley.

The vineyard

La Mordorée 2006 from M. Chapoutier is a Côte-Rôtie wine made from old Syrah vines. Located on the edge of the Côte Blonde, this plot is planted on soils made up of chlorite and iron micaschists. The vineyard is certified biodynamic and organic.

Winemaking and ageing

Harvested at full ripeness, the grapes were completely destemmed. Vinification in concrete vats, with daily pumping over to encourage optimal extraction of colour and tannins. Exclusive use of the run-off juice. The wine was aged for 14 to 18 months in 225 litre barrels.

Blend

Syrah (100%).

Wine Advocate-Parker :
The 100% Syrah 2006 Cote Rotie la Mordoree was backward and tight, yet had beautiful concentration, full-bodied richness and classy notes of white pepper, mint and darker fruits. It opens up with time in the glass and is a big, powerful Cote Rotie that's loaded with potential. Give bottles another 2-4 years of cellaring and enjoy over the following decade or more.
