Domaine de la Mordorée Châteauneuf-du-Pape Domaine de la Mordorée Châteauneuf-du-Pape "Reine des Bois" Châteauneuf-du-Pape Grenache 2006
Robe: Deep ruby red, opaque. Aromas: Red fruits, changing to wooden touches of leather, black truffles and coffee. Palate: Fat, concentrated and full flavored with a very long liquoriced and fruity finish. To go with: Red meats, sauce dishes, game animals (woodcock, wild boar) and semi mature cheeses.
RiceSelect's creamy Arborio gets blended with sweet potato, coconut milk and vanilla to create this decadent cheesecake. Pairs well with Saunternes; a white dessert wine that has hints of coconut from aging in oak barrels.

Deep ruby red color, red fruits aromas leading to leather, black truffles and coffee notes. Fat and concentrated on the palate, with liquorice and fruity flavors.Pairs well with game and red meats, cheeses.70% Grenache, 10% Mourvèdre, 5% Syrah, 5% Vaccarese, 5% Cinsault and 5% Counoise. 60 year-old vinesAged in 50% oak barrels. Professional Review:A brilliant wine, and again there will be two cuvees, Christophe Delorme's 2005 Chateauneuf du Pape Cuvee de la Reine des Bois has a wonderful, gorgeous black/purple color and a beautifully sweet nose of blackberries, scorched earth, graphite, tobacco leaf, and Provencal herbs and spice. Inky, pure, full-bodied, and tannic with good acidity, this wine is going to require patience. Anticipated maturity: 2013-2025+. Sadly, the tiny yields of Mordoree’s vineyards only produced 1,250 cases of the 2005 Chateauneuf du Pape Cuvee de la Reine des Bois. (By the way, this is a wine in which 40% passes in small barrels, and 60% is aged in tank, and then the two components are blended together prior to bottling.). Drink 2013-2025.

A sensuous wine adorned with a lavender bouquet and opulent blueberry flavors garnished with a dash of white pepper. Enjoy with Summersweet Savory Pate, a blend of chicken liver, butter, wine and herbs coated with black peppercorns, and your favorite crusty bread. The balance illuminates transcendent purity.
The less expensive reds start with the 2006 Cotes du Rhocirc;ne Dame Rousse, a blend of 40% Grenache, 30% Syrah, and the rest Cinsault, Carignan and Counoise. This wine shows some dark plum notes intermixed with raspberry, kirsch, licorice, and some loamy soil notes. It is best drunk over the next 4ndash;5 years.
This wine is deep red and highly fruity, truly a red with finesse. Black currant and raspberry flavors abound, gently tempered by an earthy mushroom undertone. Always a winner!
Deep red color; blackcurrant and violet aromas. Fat mid-palate and plenty of grip. Good finesse, with fine, melted tannins and a good finish.
A wickedly intense Rhone, as good as any Gigondas, with super-ripe flavors of plum, berry and cherry. An amazing array of spices mingles with all that fruit goodness leaving you breathless and in need of another sip. 40% Grenache, 30% Syrah, 15% Cinsault, 10% Carignan, 5% Counoise.
Once again the Mordoreacute;e Cocirc;tes du Rhocirc;ne is one of the best deals going. A traditional blend of Grenache, Syrah and Cinsault, grown by sustainable methods, this wine has has flavors of plum, black cherry, and pepper. The finish is long and spicy. Pick this one up before its all gone.
