A top 2008 the Domaine de la Mordorée Châteauneuf-du-Pape Cuvée de la Reine des Bois bottling offers superb balance and an overall elegant fresh character. The wine is a blend of 80% Grenache 10% Mourvèdre 5% Syrah 2.5% Counoise and 2.5% Vaccarèse that's aged half in oak of which only 12% is new and half in tank. Raspberry spice licorice and subtle roasted meats are present on the nose and lead to a medium bodied mid-weight palate. Very classy and focused the wine has ultra fine tannin adding length on the finish. This will drink well over the next 10 to 15 years. While this is without a doubt made in the Mordorée style of pure polished and rich fruit it's very elegant and streamlined as opposed to a wine of power and impact. Tasted twice.

Quite ripe and well-rounded for the vintage with flattering blueberry blackberry and fig paste notes liberally laced with spice toast and fruitcake flavors. The long toasty finish is dense with a lightly firm edge. Drink... Quite ripe and well-rounded for the vintage with flattering blueberry blackberry and fig paste notes liberally laced with spice toast and fruitcake flavors. The long toasty finish is dense with a lightly firm edge. Drink now through 2022. 2000 cases made. -JM

Aside from the 2002, the 2008 Chateauneuf du Pape Cuvee de La Reine des Bois is the lightest and most straightforward in the lineup. Almost Burgundian in its weight and texture, it offers an elegant, layered style on the palate to go with pretty berry fruits, ground pepper, mineral, licorice and tinges of cured meats on the nose. Shining for its elegance and purity, it should be consumed over the coming 5-6 years. - Jeb Dunnuck
