Domaine de la Mordorée "La Reine des Bois" Châteauneuf-du-Pape '12
Ambre Delorme has carried the torch for her late father, Christophe, since he passed away in 2015. He, alongside his father, Francis, began the domaine in the late 1980s, purchasing property in Tavel. The domaine grew to its current size of 58 hectares, spread across 38 different parcels, in appellations such as Tavel, Lirac, and Châteauneuf-du-Pape. The winery is certified both organic and biodynamic, and the results show in their entire range of wines. "La Reine des Bois" is the top red wine made, and we are lucky to be offering this wine, in its prime drinking window, and at such a great price.
"One of the blockbusters in the vintage, the inky-colored 2012 Châteauneuf du Pape La Reine des Bois – 80% Grenache, completely destemmed and aged 12 months in 80% stainless steel and 20% old barrels – offers fantastic richness and depth in its blackberry liqueur, graphite, wood smoke and crushed-rock-like aromas and flavors. An elegant, stylish and polished example of this cuvée, it comes closest in my mind to a lighter-weight 2010. Medium to full-bodied, concentrated and with fine tannin, it will drink well for 10-15 years. 95 Points, Drink 2016-2027, The Wine Advocate"
