Mordoree Condrieu Reine des Bois 2014

Mordoree Condrieu Reine des Bois is made from 100 percent Viognier.

Domaine de la Mordorée owned this vineyards in the condrieu appelation.

The vineyard was abandonned back in the 1960 as the work couldn't be done by machine. Christophe Delorme found some old plantings of Viognier in the middle of the growing vegatation that took over the piece of property.

The planting was completly redone in 2004.

Surface : 0,75 Ha.
Yield : 15 Hl./Ha
Vineyard age: 9 years
Terroir: granitic debris on a stiff slope
Harvest: by hand
Vinification: skin contact maceration and direct pressing
Fermentation: already used oak barrels

Color: dense Gold with green hues
Aromas: white and yellow fruits (mango, passion, white peach) and flower (violet)
Flavors: very round, long and complex with a lot of freshness

The soil is extremely poor, which is great for low yield, intense and concentrated wines.

Some asiatic dishes, merely those whish are rich and complex, sweet and sour cuisine, foie gras and aperitive.

Review:

"The 2014 Lirac Cuvee de La Reine des Bois is an incredible effort that transcends the vintage and is easily the wine of the vintage from Lirac. Possessing fabulous purity and elegance, with medium to full-bodied richness, classic notes of crème de cassis, caramelized meats, violets and licorice, sweet tannin and a great finish, I doubt it will be the longest lived example of this cuvée, but man, hats off to the team for this killer wine in a difficult vintage! - Jeb Dunnuck"

Review:

The 2015 Lirac La Reine des Bois continues this estate's mastery of the appellation, combining hints of vanilla with black cherry fruit in a full-bodied, richly textured and tannic wine. The blend is 40% Syrah, 30% Grenache and 30% Mourvèdre, with up to 15% being aged in barriques. Longtime readers will be happy to know that the 2010 (still youthful) and the 2006 (nearing maturity) are drinking well. Based on that, expect this vintage to drink well through at least 2030.-Wine Advocate 93 Points

Review:

A gorgeous effort that oozes charm and finesse (which is rare for this cuvee as it is normally backward and structured on release), the 2011 Chateauneuf du Pape Cuvee de la Reine des Bois (85% Grenache and the balance Mourvedre and Syrah) is loaded with darker Grenache aromas and flavors of black raspberries, toast, licorice, subtle flowers and spice. Up-front, approachable and showing the forward nature of the vintage, it has full-bodied richness, fantastic purity and enough ripe tannin to allow it to evolve gracefully for 10-12 years. It opens up nicely in the glass and over the evening, and should be given another year or two in the cellar. It’s a beautiful wine. Drink 2015-2023.Wine Advocate #209 93 Points

Winery: Mordoree

The Mordoree Estate
This is arguably the top estate in our Portfolio. Domaine de la Mordoree (woodcock), located in the town of Tavel, in the Southern Rhone Valley, is the most consistent producer of top quality wine in my entire selection. In 1986, the brothers Christophe and Fabrice Delorme decided to dedicate themselves to their passion for wine. They started their own estate with the objective to produce the best wines in each appellation while preserving the environment

The Mordoree Vineyard 
The vineyard consists of 55 hectares (135 acres), on 38 different parcels, which provide with a rich, wide range of soils and climates. The soil is a mix of clay, chalk and sand with pebble stones. The improvements at the Domaine have been incredible: new pneumatic presses, new stainless steel vats, new destemmer, new vinification and aging plant, and aging in oak barrels for the top wines. All the grapes are raised by culture raisonnée which is very close to organic viticulture (intervention in the vineyard only when necessary).  The yield is reduced in the vineyard by ébourgeonnage (de budding in spring) and vendanges vertes in summer (green harvesting).  Oak aging for the top wines in special barrels like “jupille” for 10 months.  No expense is spared at this Domaine to achieve quality.

Alain de la Treille Touraine Sauvignon Blanc 2017

Our Touraine Sauvignon blanc is crisp and refreshing, with rich, ripe lime and grapefruit aromas. Great elegance with mineral style and despite everything some kind of roundness.

Average age of the vines is 20 years old.

We produce a part of this cuvee with 12 hours skin maceration and another part from directly pressed grapes

Wine was slightly filtered before bottling to ensure wine will remain stable.

Ideal for the Aperitif , any cooked fish such as smoked and grilled salmon but also obviously with a Goat Cheese.
