This is packed, with layers of charcoal and tar covering the well-endowed core of braised fig, blackberry pâte de fruit and pastis-soaked plum for now. Alder, olive and bay line the finish, with a terrific graphite spine lending support. Best from 2019 through 2030. 48 cases imported. –JM

(100% syrah, from vines in the Cote Blonde that are reportedly almost 65 years old): Opaque ruby. An exotically perfumed bouquet presents candied dark berries and cherry-cola, with notes of Indian spices, anise and smoked meat building with air. Fleshy but focused on the palate, with intense black and blue fruit flavors and a touch of candied violet. Tangy minerals add lift and cut to a strikingly long, smoky and gently tannic finish. - Josh Raynolds

While it is a very strong effort I would rank it a point or two below the 2009 which I believe is the finest La Mordoree since the awesome 1991. It offers an impressive dense ruby/purple color along with a sweet bouquet of bacon fat black olives black currants raspberries earth and forest floor. Ripe and medium-bodied with light to moderate tannin it is somewhat closed at present and will benefit from 4-5 years of cellaring. It should keep for 20-25 years. -Robert Parker
