About Our Ratings

Chateauneuf Du Pape 2012 Reine Des Bois, Domaine Mordoree
A relatively young Domaine, it was 1986 when Mordoree devoted itself to producing outstanding wine. They acquired land, broadening their vineyards especially with cherished parcels in Châteauneuf du Pape, in 1989. The Châteauneuf du Pape appellation parcels of Domaine de la Mordorée are located in some of the prime sub-regions; La Crau, La Nerthe, Cabrières and Le Bois de la Ville. The vineyards average 60 years of age and are farmed biodynamically. The grape varieties for this 2012 are 80 % Grenache,10 % Mourvèdre, 5% Syrah, 2.5% Counoise and 2.5% Vaccarese, 100% destemmed and slow macerated for a full 30 days. The wine aged 30% in oak barrels, 70% in enameled steel tanks. International Wine Cellar scored it 93-95 and the Wine Advocate scored it 95 points saying "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."
