This vineyard is littered with the famous ‘galets’ or pudding stones characteristic of the area, but in reality the subsoil if far more important – the quaternary terrace has a complex and varied mixture of red clay and ferruginous sand. The vines are very old (approximately 90 years old). This unique hilltop vineyard West of the village of Châteauneuf-du-Pape makes some of the silkiest and most elegant wines in the region. The biodynamic viticulture ensures low yields (15-20 hl/ha) which are necessary to create a pure and intense Grenache wine. The wine is ample, fleshy, hot and round. It has an outstanding density with an impressive length.

Information About Chapoutier
'An Estate that has nurtured its vineyards with the greatest respect for natural balance and terroir since 1808.'
 
The Chapoutier family can trace their history in the Rhône region back to 1808, but it was in 1879 that Polydor Chapoutier bought his first vineyards and began making wine. In the mid-20th century Max Chapoutier led the business, until his retirement in 1977, after which his sons Michel Chapoutier and Marc Chapoutier took his place.
 
It was Michel Chapoutier's skills that sparked the rise of Maison Chapoutier. His energy, vision and need to express terroir has been the driving force behind the maison's success. Now with wines produced in several appellations of the Rhone and  Rousillon regions, Alsace and also Australia,  Michel Chapoutier is one of the most revered wine makers in the world and has received global recognition for the quality of his works.

Tasting Date : 01 February 2011

Aromas of lilacs, crushed rocks, blue and red fruits and a gamy, earthy scent emerge from the dark ruby-hued, medium-bodied 2008 Cote Rotie La Mordoree (604 cases produced). It is complex aromatically, but seems to fall off on the palate. Nevertheless, it is a fine effort for a 2008. Drink it over the next 7-8 years.
