Domaine de la Mordorée Reine des bois Châteauneuf du Pape 2012
“ The model cuvée, La Reine des Bois, from Mordorée, poetically referred to in the region as the woodcock, is made mainly of Grenache Noir (80%), complemented by Mourvèdre (10%), Syrah (5%), Counoise (2.5%) and Vaccarèse (2.5%). The vines, which are approximately 60 years old, are from the 5-hectare vineyard located on the plateau of Crau. Completely destemmed, the grapes are vinified and aged in stainless steel tanks (70%) and then in French oak barrels (30%). This wine is a deep purple-blue. Its nose is intense and powerful with notes of dark fruit liqueur (blackberries and blueberries), licorice, cocoa, wood and graphite. Large, powerful and long, the palate is fresh with massive, abundant tannins. This would make an excellent addition to your cellar. Bravo!”
