60-year-old vines, this is rich, powerful, and superbly balanced, with beautiful concentration and depth of flavors. Fat and juicy on the palate, with flavors of licorice and blackberries. Haunting aromas of leather and truffles and hints of coffee. A blend of 80% Grenache; 10% Mourvedre 5% Syrah, and 5% Vaccarese and Counoise. Aged in 50% oak barrels and the other half in enameled steel tanks. The short crop resulted in a much smaller production than normal. This will age beautifully because of the balance. A great buy! Very limited availability.

"Quite ripe and well-rounded for the vintage, with flattering blueberry, blackberry and fig paste notes liberally laced with spice, toast and fruitcake flavors. The long, toasty finish is dense, with a lightly firm edge. Drink now through 2022." 91/100 Wine Spectator Insider

"One of the finest Chateauneuf du Papes I tasted in the challenging 2008 vintage is Mordoree's 2008 Chateauneuf du Pape La Reine des Bois. It boasts a deep dark ruby/purple hue as well as aromas of camphor, blueberries, blackberries, licorice, and spice box. Dense and medium to full-bodied, it is one of the most concentrated efforts of the vintage." 90-93/100 Robert M. Parker, Jr., The Wine Advocate
