Winemaker's Notes

"The flagship wine remains Mordoree's remarkable Chateauneuf du Pape Cuvee de la Reine des Bois. The 2001 Chateauneuf du Pape Cuvee de la Reine des Bois possesses slightly less charm and accessibility than the 2000, but it is even more extracted, with additional definition, structure, richness, acidity, fruit intensity, and concentration. Packed and stacked, this inky purple-colored Chateauneuf offers a sumptuous nose of minerals, creme de cassis, acacia flowers, pepper, and blackberries. Dense, full-bodied, and multidimensional, this great young Chateauneuf du Pape will require more patience than its older sibling. Anticipated maturity: 2006-2025." - Wine Advocate

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.
