Domaine de la Mordorée La Reine des Bois Châteauneuf-du-Pape Red Rhone Blend 2000

$109

The flagship wine remains Mordoree's remarkable Chateauneuf du Pape Cuvee de la Reine des Bois. The 2000 boasts an inky purple color in addition to a ravishing perfume of wood smoke, creme de cassis, blueberries, plums, figs, and a hint of graphite. Full-bodied, with sweet tannin, a layered richness, staggering ripeness, and a finish that lasts for nearly 50 seconds, this monumental Chateauneuf du Pape continues the unbelievable succession of superstar wines that began in 1998. Anticipated maturity: 2004-2020. Robert Parker

This was good with lots of spice, plums, and tobacco. Lots of life left.

Decanted because of sediment. Beautiful aromatics very floral, nosed it the entire dinner. Delicate fruit, but with some power still. Held up without fading. Modern transformed in this case.

Laid back and luxury, beef stew, beautiful spices, fresh herbs, very classical yet full of seductive charm. Intriguing and complex, warm, inviting. Gorgeous wine. 95/100
