Wine tasting note: 1995 Chapoutier Cote Rotie Mordoree

1995 Chapoutier Cote Rotie Mordoree

15th Oct 1997 Rhone Table Red

[Barrel sample.]
Deep, even, purple to purple/red.
Slightly mute nose but concentrated vanilla and smoke lurking in there.
Full bodied with a lovely, velvety texture; flavours of violets, mulberries and minerals; good acidity and soft, leathery tannins; toasty oak coming through in the finish. Very elegant.
An outstanding wine that shows remarkably well now.
