|Village||Châteauneuf du Pape|
The 2011 Châteauneuf du Pape Cuvée de La Reine des Bois is gorgeous in this vintage, with an up-front perfume and sexy style. Violets, potpourri, spring flowers and sweet fruit give way to a full-bodied, pure, concentrated and balanced Châteauneuf that can be consumed anytime over the coming decade or more.

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.
91 James Molesworth, The Wine Spectator (Oct 2013)
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.

Domaine de la Mordorée: Full Wine List and Profile
Started in 1986 by the Delorme brothers, Domaine de la Mordorée (woodcock) has become one of the top estates in the Rhône, with arguably the most consistent quality. Christophe Delorme's objective as a winemaker is to be unintrusive and maintain total respect for his terroir and the fruit it produces, striving to achieve a perfect balance between concentration, terroir and balance.
The domaine consists of 55 Hectares, on 38 different parcels, providing a rich, wide range of soils and climates. Seeking to make the minimum long-term impact on nature, they practiced culture raisonnée'.
Christophe's approach was so 'raisonnée' that he held back from being fully organic because he was worried about the long-term effect of putting too much copper (the the form of copper sulphate, a permitted treatment in organic viticulture) onto his vineyards. Now due to the improvements on formulations, and work done in disease prevention, they can use copper sulphate with very low concentrations, these levels are not impacting the soils.
The whole domaine has been certified organic since 2007.
