One of the more polished, seamless and sexy vintages of this cuvée I can remember, the 2015 Châteauneuf du Pape Cuvée de la Reine des Bois sports a deep ruby/purple color to go with fabulous notes of black raspberries, graphite, creamy licorice, garrigue and sappy flowers. Full-bodied, silky, impeccably balanced and with impressive tannic grip and length, which builds with time in the glass, this sensational 2015 will be reasonably approachable by this estate's standards, yet have 15-20 years of prime drinking. Since the untimely death of Christophe Delorme last year, the winemaking at Domaine de la Mordorée has fallen to Rémy Chauvet, who was the cellar manager under Christophe for a number of years. Based on these 2015 barrel samples, the estate is obviously still in incredibly capable hands. 94-96+ Points (JD)
The 2015 Châteauneuf-du-Pape La Reine des Bois from Domaine de La Mordoree is solid in the vintage. A blend of 75% Grenache, 14% Mourvèdre and the rest Syrah, Vaccarèse and Counoise, aged in 25% new barrels, it offers the classic darker styled fruits of this cuvée, with lots of blackberry, currants, toasted spice, graphite, and licorice all emerging from the glass. Medium to full-bodied on the palate, with a supple, elegant style, it's already drinking beautifully, yet should evolve gracefully. This is one of the more elegant, mid-weight examples of this cuvée produced yet it will still keep for 10-12 years. (JebDunnuck.com)
