Robert Parker's Wine Advocate - Robert Parker's Wine Advocate, December 2014
While I loved Michel's 2012 Cote Rotie la Mordoree from barrel, it blew me away from bottle, and I think bares more than a passing resemblance to his 1991.

While I loved Michel's 2012 Cote Rotie la Mordoree from barrel, it blew me away from bottle, and I think bares more than a passing resemblance to his 1991. About as elegant and seamless as they come, it exhibits incredible notes of violets, peppery spice, spring flowers, rose petal and darker berry fruit. This is followed by a full-bodied, sweetly fruited, expansive Cote Rotie that's perfectly balanced, has beautiful mid-palate density, and ultra-fine tannin that emerge on the finish. It's a blockbuster effort to drink over the coming two decades. - Jeb Dunnuck

Nicely saturated from core to edge, with bramble, singed bay and espresso notes weaving around blackberry, black currant and fig paste flavors. The finish is tarry in feel, but dark olive, warm stone and smoldering... Nicely saturated from core to edge, with bramble, singed bay and espresso notes weaving around blackberry, black currant and fig paste flavors. The finish is tarry in feel, but dark olive, warm stone and smoldering tobacco accents add extra range and texture, too. A rock-solid offering. Best from 2018 through 2030. From France. — J.M.

Potent mineral- and spice-accented cherry and blackberry scents are complicated by notes of mocha, pipe tobacco and fresh flowers. Sweet and seamless on the palate, offering deeply concentrated dark fruit flavors that gain energy and spiciness with aeration. Powerful yet lithe and sharply focused, finishing very long, with strong cut and dusty tannins that sneak in late. -- Josh Raynolds
