Reviews:

 

Full ruby. Powerful, smoke-accented boysenberry and black raspberry on the perfumed nose. Broad and fleshy on the palate, offering bitter cherry, dark berry and licorice flavors that gain spiciness and energy with aeration. Shows very good thrust and breadth on the dark-fruit-dominated finish, which is firmed by broad, mounting tannins. In a substantial style but not lacking for vivacity. - Vinous 91-93 Points

More pure, focused and elegant than the La Belle Voyageuse cuvee, the 2014 Châteauneuf du Pape Cuvee de la Reine des Bois is reminiscent of the 2006 with it’s beautiful fruit, medium to full-bodied richness, and solid overall concentration and length. Made from 75% Grenache, 14% Mourvèdre, 7% Syrah and 2% each of Counoise and Vaccarese, it saw a 30-day maceration and aging in 70% stainless steel tanks and 30% in barrels. It should be one of the earlier drinking vintages for this cuvée, yet it will still have 10-15 years of overall longevity (which is saying something in this vintage). - Wine Advocate 92-94 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.
