2000 Domaine de la Mordorée "Reine des Bois" Châteauneuf-du-Pape

SKU #998436 98 points Jeb Dunnuck

Outer quote mark 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. Inner quote mark (12/2006)

97 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate

Outer quote mark A wine that always does it for me, the 2000 Chateauneuf du Pape Cuvee de La Reine des Bois is open for business and has a sexy, voluptuous texture to go with classic Mordoree spice, licorice, graphite and black cherry and currant-styled fruit. Beautifully complex, full-bodied and with brilliant purity of fruit, drink it over the coming 3-5 years. (JD) Inner quote mark (8/2014)

94 points Wine Spectator

Outer quote mark 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. (PM) Inner quote mark (8/2002)

92 points Stephen Tanzer's International Wine Cellar

Outer quote mark 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. (ST) 92+ Inner quote mark (1/2003)

K&L Notes

98 points from Robert Parker: "The spectacular 2001 Châteauneuf du Pape Cuvée Vieilles Vignes is one of the monumental Châteauneuf du Papes of the vintage. A saturated plum/purple color reveals a thick, rich appearance. The wine combines freshness, power, elegance, and great intensity, all wrapped into a full-bodied, concentrated personality with phenomenal persistence on the palate. Remarkably pure, but neither over-done nor over-ripe, this spectacular, youthful Châteauneuf du Pape should hit its prime in 5-6 years, and last for two decades. It is a brilliant tour de force!" (02/2004)
