Wine Critic Reviews for 2000 Mordoree CDP Reine De Bois

Wow, Domaine de la Mordorée's 2000 Châteauneuf-du-Pape Cuvée de la Reine des Bo is almost the quintessential Chateauneuf and is glorious stuff. They should bottle the nose on this wine and sell it. Shows beautiful ripe fruit and exotic spice with subtle meat, leather, minerals and licorice notes in the background. Full bodied with incredibly rich, pure fruit. The palate is seamless and still maintains a perfectly balanced, almost light feel that carries into a very long finish.

The flagship wine remains Mordoree's remarkable Chateauneuf du Pape Cuvee de la Reine des Bois. The 2000 boasts an inky purple color in addition to a ravishing perfume of wood smoke, creme de cassis, blueberries, plums, figs, and a hint of graphite. Full-bodied, with sweet tannin, a layered richness, staggering ripeness, and a finish that lasts for nearly 50 seconds, this monumental Chateauneuf du Pape continues the unbelievable succession of superstar wines that began in 1998. Anticipated maturity: 2004-2020.

Robert Parker | 97 RP
A sensational Châteauneuf-du-Pape that's sleek, yet rich and thick. Maintains elegance thanks to the succulent black and red fruit, which gives it a freshness to balance the ripe flavors and generous, sweet oak aromas accented by tobacco notes. Full-bodied and tempting now, but will improve as the tannins soften. Best from 2005 through 2015. 1,665 cases made, 200 cases imported.

Wine Spectator | 94 WS
Full deep ruby. Strongly oaky aromas of cassis, blackberry, violet, bitter chocolate and leather. Impressively deep and stuffed with fruit; but the inky, chocolatey, licorice-tinged flavors and powerful oakiness suggest that this wine will need a good decade to harmonize. Finishes with major oak tannins and outstanding persistence. This may already be shutting down.

More Information
Producer Domaine de la Mordoree
Region Rhone: While the Northern Rhone produces only about 5% of all wine coming out of the Rhone Valley, the quality of these bottles is not to be underestimated. The terroir in this region is heavenly for growing Syrah, Viognier, Marsanne or Rousanne - the only permitted grapes in the AOC. Picture this - the Rhone flows through the valley like an azure thread piercing the landscape, a reflection of the dreamy skies hovering above the vineyards, ready to produce rainfall at a moment's notice. The rocky soil of the steep, almost surreal hillsides provides a bountiful feast for the grapevine roots. The flavors and texture of Northern Rhone wines tell you everything you need to know as soon as your lips touch the elixir, like a whisper in the vigorous valley winds

As per the Southern Rhone wine, it is like taking a plunge into a whirlpool of juicy flavor. Every sip explodes forward like a crashing tsunami, bathing your tastebuds in delicious aromas of prune, chocolate, grass, and black fruit. The wines are so compelling that it can be hard to drink them casually at a social event without getting lost in their intricate textures and emotional depths. Let's set sail together, and drink deep from these luxurious bottles with our friends and loved ones.
Country France: Words fail us when trying to adequately portray France's place in the world of wine. It's downright impossible to imagine what wine would feel and taste like had it not been for France's many, many viticultural pioneers. Fine wine is the blood of France's vigorously beating heart, and it finds itself in many aspects of French culture. With a viticultural history that dates all the way back to the 6th century BC, France now enjoys its position as the most famous and reputable wine region on the planet. If you have a burning passion for masterfully crafted, mouth-watering, mind-expanding wines, then regular visits to France are probably already in your schedule, and for a good reason.
Type of Wine Chateauneuf du Pape: You can expect Chateauneuf-du-Pape reds selection to wash over you with a combination of leather, game, tar, and delicious dried herbs, creating a spice mixture that commands respect from even the harshest non-believers. Chateauneuf-du-Pape whites are ever so refreshing and bold, frolicking in a field of floral notes and earthy minerals.
Varietal Proprietary Blend: There's a level of mystery and intrigue when it comes to drinking a wine for which you're not fully informed about, and if that sounds like a thrilling idea to you, then you're probably already interested in proprietary blends. While the concept doesn't have a legal definition, it is used to describe blends whose components aren't disclosed by the producer. In many cases, the wine tends to be a Bordeaux-inspired blend, but this isn't always the case.
