The 2009 Chateauneuf du Pape Cuvee de la Reine des Bois is brilliant. A blend of 80% Grenache and the rest Mourvedre, Syrah and other approved varietals, it was aged in stainless steel (two-thirds) and smaller older barrels (one-third). Its inky purple color is followed by a gorgeous nose of blackberry and blueberry liqueur, lead pencil shavings, and a hint of raspberries. Full-bodied, rich and concentrated with abundant floral notes, stunning flavor depth, brilliant purity and sweet tannin, it will benefit from 3andndash;4 years of bottle age (atypical for a 2009), and should drink well for 25+ years.

Sadly, Mordoree owns only ten acres in Chateauneuf du Pape, so production is limited. However, the wines are consistently brilliant. The 2003 Chateauneuf du Pape Cuvee de la Reine des Bois, a blend of 80% Grenache, 10% Mourvedre, and the rest Syrah, Vaccarese, and Cinsault, was 100% destemmed, and was aged in tank (one-third) and a combination of new, 1, 2, and 3-year old French barrels (two-thirds). At 15.5% alcohol, this is no wimpish wine. It is full-bodied and elegant, with a dense purple color, a big, chewy richness, tremendous purity, and notes of smoke, creosote, black raspberries, cassis, and cherries. Deep and opulent with noticeably high tannin in the finish, this large-scaled, substantial Chateauneuf should hit its peak in 4-6 years, and last for two decades.

As usual at this young age, the new oak used for aging this cuvandeacute;e stands out a bit, giving the plummy fruit aromas a cedary, menthol-tinged veneer. But on the palate the wine shines, from its expansive, creamy mouthfeel to the captivating flavors of brandied cherries and powdered cinnamon. Drink nowandndash;2020.

The 2009 Chandacirc;teauneuf du Pape Cuvandeacute;e 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 Chandacirc;teauneufs 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 2andndash;4 years of bottle age; it should last for 15andndash;20+ years. Bravo!

Vivid ruby. Deeply pitched black raspberry, cherry and floral aromas are brightened by notes of Asian spices and minerals. Rich and fleshy but shockingly lithe, offering juicy red and dark berry compote flavors and complicating notes of candied lav... Stephen Tanzers IWC.

Bright violet. Exhilarating, highly perfumed nose combines wild dark berries, smoky plum, cola and flowers. Impressively dense and sweet, with a surprising light touch to the intense black and red fruit flavors. A lively core of ripe acidity adds foc... Stephen Tanzers IWC.
