Showing beautifully from barrel and now from bottle, the 2013 Côte Rôtie la Mordorée comes from schist soils, was completely destemmed and spent 18 months in 25% new French oak. Its deep purple color is accompanied by classic notes of raspberries, bay leaf, olive tapenade and violets. Possessing beautiful minerality, a full, layered mid-palate and building tannin, drink this beautiful wine anytime over the coming 15 or more years. - Jeb Dunnuck

Tightly packed but rippling with energy, this has a coiled core of raspberry, bitter plum and violet notes, augmented by black tea, savory and sweet tapenade flavors. The long finish pulls everything together, maintaining vibrancy along the way. There's superb drive and tension here. Best from 2018 through 2030. 50 cases imported. –JM

Suave, expansive aromas of fresh blueberry, black raspberry, incense and candied flowers. Sweet, seamless and concentrated, offering intense dark fruit preserve and cola flavors and suggestions of licorice and spicecake that build with air. In a generous, fruit-forward style, but there's very good structure here as well. Sneaky tannins frame the energetic dark fruit on the very long, juicy finish. -- Josh Raynolds
