2007 Domaine de la Mordorée "Cuvée de la Reine des Bois" Lirac

SKU #1057886 94 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate

 The outrageously superb 2007 Lirac La Reine des Bois (equal parts Grenache, Mourvèdre, and Syrah) may be the finest wine Delorme has yet made. Its dense purple color is accompanied by a sumptuous perfume of black fruits, licorice, earth, and pepper. The fruit quality is deep, textured, and pure, and the 35-second finish is superb. This knock-out wine should drink well for 7-8 years. (RP)  (10/2009)

 The 2007 Domaine de la Mordorée Lirac Cuvée de la Reine des Bois offers up stunning cassis and blackberry fruit, earth, licorice and stony aromas that lead into a balanced, pure palate. Very dense and concentrated, this has a smooth, rich texture, stunning fruit and a tannic long finish. Give this a couple years to integrate its structure and then drink over the following 15 to 20 years. 93+  (8/2009)

 Really loaded with fruit, this shows raspberry, boysenberry and blackberry notes all layered with sweet spice and bacony toast before the fresh, mineral-driven finish takes over. Impressive for the appellation. Drink now through 2012. (JM)  (6/2009)

 Dark and brooding, and not just a little bit wild. Deep-throated plums with aniseed and dried herbs. Vivid, long and gorgeous. 17/20 points. (TC)  (6/2010)
