2001 Domaine de la Mordoree Chateauneuf du Pape Cuvee de la Reine des Bois - 100 pts
Tasted on four separate occasions and awarded a perfect score on three of those the 2001 Chateauneuf du Pape Cuvee de la Reine des Bois even surpasses the extraordinary Reine des Bois produced in 2000 1999 and 1998 ... and that's saying something! An inky/purple color is followed by a heady perfume of graphite blackberries kirsch licorice truffles and charcoal. This full-bodied effort displays endless concentration in its pure dense generous flavors. It is broadly flavored with beautifully integrated acidity tannin and alcohol. A blend of 78% Grenache 10% Mourvedre and small quantities of Cinsault Counoise Syrah and Vaccarese it is made from 60-year old vines and aged both in cask and neutral foudres from what are obviously very low yields. Sadly just over 1000 cases were produced. This classic Chateauneuf du Pape requires 3-5 years of cellaring it will last for two decades. A modern day legend it is an example of what progressive winemaking can achieve without abandoning the traditions of the appellation. RP
