2003 Domaine de la Mordorée "Reine des Bois" Châteauneuf-du-Pape

SKU #1117048 97 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate

Outer quote mark A wine I’ve been lucky enough to have numerous times recently, the 2003 Chateauneuf du Pape Cuvee de La Reine des Bois is gorgeous. Quite possibly the wine of the vintage, it shows thrilling levels of blackberry, licorice, toasted bread, and garrigue to go with a full-bodied, massive, yet layered and seamless feel on the palate. There’s none of the rusticity or coarse tannin that’s common in the vintage, and it possesses beautiful purity, sweetness of fruit and length. (JD) Inner quote mark (8/2014)

97 points Wine Spectator

Outer quote mark Captivating raspberry ganache and cassis aromas and flavors pump through this richly layered beauty, with notes of melted licorice, bittersweet cocoa, fig paste and hoisin sauce. The long, driven finish drips with fruit and minerality, with seriously embedded structure. Best from 2010 through 2030. (JM, Web-2008) Inner quote mark

93 points Stephen Tanzer's International Wine Cellar

Outer quote mark Inky violet color. Rich, smoky and deep on the nose, with powerful scents of chocolate, creme de mure and kirsch, tinged by candied violet and cracked pepper. Concentrated and lush, with a round, velvety texture and abundant sweet plum, blackberry and mocha flavors. Finishes with ripe, round tannins, a very sweet note of cassis, and great length. (JR) Inner quote mark (2/2006)

93 points Wine Enthusiast

Outer quote mark A dark, brooding wine, packed with wood and dry tannin flavors. At the same time, the fruit is huge, with chocolate, dark plum, cassis and sweetness. This is a dense wine that is going to be hugely impressive after 5 years of aging. (RV) Inner quote mark (12/2005)

K&L Notes

96-98 Neal Martin's Wine Journal: "An alluring, understated nose of blackcurrant, roasted red pepper and game. Huge grip, decadent and very tannic. Liquorices, spice, black olives and game. Very long finish. This will be an awesome wine but demands a great deal of aging. One for the grandchildren." (08/2007)
