94 points "The 1997 Cote Rotie La Mordoree is an extremely expressive, open-knit, aromatic, and seductive example. Chapoutier believes it is the finest he has ever made. It is soft, accessible, and easy to understand. The saturated ruby/purple color is accompanied by tell-tale aromas of black raspberries, roasted herbs, smoke, and meat. The wine is medium to full-bodied and moderately tannic, with low acidity, superb concentration, and an intense black cherry, camphor-like, olive component. This wine should be drinkable upon release, and last for two decades. (92-94)" Best 1999-2020

93 points "A class act. Succulent yet ripe, showing wonderfully defined of aromas and flavors, kicking with lively acidity but also delivering plenty of ripe fruit, smoke, grilled meat and leather notes. Supple, subtle, sweet tannin structure. This Rhône red is enjoyable on release, but has the stuffing to age. Drink now through 2010. (PM)" Best 2000-2010
