(JD94-96 points) Another new cuvée that’s from a tiny parcel in the northern part of the appellation comprised of pure micro-schist soils and a southeast/south exposure, the 2016 Côte Rôtie Neve is elegant and seamless, with refined aromas and flavors of blackberries, raspberries, crushed flowers and violets. Medium to full-bodied, with incredible purity and freshness, it has fine, silky tannin (which are the hallmark of the vintage) and a great finish. It's much more elegant and reserved than the Mordorée cuvee, yet shines for its purity, finesse and elegance.

Heady, mineral- and spice-accented aromas of cherry, black currant and olive are accompanied by a sexy floral quality that builds as the wine opens up. Juicy, appealingly sweet black and blue fruit flavors show excellent depth, focus and spicy thrust. Delivers a compelling blend of power and elegance and finishes with persistent sweetness and velvety, building tannins. -- Josh Raynolds

Crisp and focused, the 2016 Cote Rotie Neve still needs some additional bottle age before it will be ready for prime time. Pencil shavings and smoke frame tart red berry flavors in this medium to full-bodied wine that offers plenty of intensity, culminating in a long, cranberry-ish finish. - Joe Czerwinski

Chapoutier

Chapoutier is one of the oldest wine producers in the Rhone Valley with a history dating back to 1808. A distant ancestor, Polydor Chapoutier, was the first to buy vines here, shifting from being a simple grape grower to making and trading his own wine. For the last two hundred years, the estate has been producing some of the greatest wines in the Rhone Valley. Today, the range also includes wines from some Roussillon appellations as well as projects in Portugal and Australia.

Under Michel Chapoutier’s leadership, quality improved and Chapoutier gained international recognition. The massive negociant and winery produces single-vineyard expressions and classic wines from a range of appellations in the north and south of the valley.

They have adopted biodynamic farming techniques and have included Braille markings on their labels since 1996. This was done from a desire to reach out to and include lovers of good wines with sight-impairments, and as a tribute to Maurice Monier of La Sizeranne, a member of the family that previously owned the vines of the same name and who invented the first abbreviated version of Braille.
