Red wine 2009 Domaine De la Mordoree Chateauneuf-du-Pape Cuvee de la Reine des Bois France Region: Rh Free Shipping Insurance
The 2009 Châteauneuf du Pape Cuvée de la Reine des Bois (made from an identical blend with an identical upbringing) is also one of the most impressive efforts of the vintage. However, Christophe Delorme and his brother, Fabrice, have fashioned so many great Reine des Bois, it is difficult to say if it will turn out better than the 2007, 2006, 2005, 2001, 2000 or 1998. Among the most concentrated Châteauneufs of the vintage, it boasts a dense ruby/purple color as well as copious aromas of blueberries, blackberries, melted licorice and spring flowers. This full-bodied offering reveals rich, pure fruit notes, a multidimensional mouthfeel and extraordinary elegance and freshness. It is a tour de force achievement that requires 2–4 years of bottle age; it should last for 15–20+ years. Bravo!
