Critical Acclaim

"A gorgeous effort that oozes charm and finesse, the 2011 Chateauneuf du Pape Cuvee de la Reine des Bois 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."
93 Points

"Opaque ruby. Deeply pitched black raspberry, sandalwood and Indian spice scents are enlivened by a peppery nuance. Broad and sappy in the mouth, offering sweet red and dark berry compote flavors and a touch of licorice. Showing surprising depth for an '11, this wine finishes with excellent power and smooth, gently tannic persistence."
92 Points

"Solidly built, with a dark licorice frame to the core of plum paste, cherry compote and linzer torte flavors. This exhibits a long, sappy feel through the finish, showing ample grip. Well-integrated overall. "

Learn About Domaine de la Mordoree Map ItMap It

Born from a deep-rooted winegrowing background, it was only in 1986 that the Domaine became entirely dedicated to a passion for wine. Consequently, the Domaine sold all other businesses in the field of hi-tech ventilated suits.

This choice was matured through long consideration and thought for both quality and environment-friendliness. The goal was clear: produce the best wine in each appellation, while preserving nature and man. La Mordoree therefore acquired new lands, broadening its vineyards and enriching its appellations with new cherished parcels of land.

(shah-too-NUHF due Pahp) Southern Rhone's landmark region, Chateauneuf du Pape, was the first region to gain AC status in France. That was the 1920s - it's history goes much further back than that. As the name suggests, the wine region was named after the new papal home, referring to the period of time in the 1300's when the pope resided in Avignon instead of Rome. Notable Facts...
