An exceptional, concentrated Châteauneuf which delivers a wonderful mineral sensation in the mouth. More info

The cuvée La Reine des Bois du Domaine is made from old vines (60-years-old), younger however than La Plume du Peintre. This wine is unusual as it has a little Counoise and Vaccarese in its composition, alongside traditional Châteauneuf grape varieties (Grenache, Mourvèdre and Syrah). 70% of the ageing takes place in stainless steel vats and 30% in oak barrels. This wine is less concentrated than its older brother La Plume du Peintre and will keep for about ten years. Its fruity and liquorice aromas are just as intense and charming and it has a masterly finish.

Châteauneuf-du-Pape Domaine de La Mordorée Cuvée de la Reine des Bois Famille Delorme serve at a temperature of 16°C. It will pair perfectly with the following dishes: Civet de lièvre, Lapin aux pruneaux, Volaille truffée.

Information about domain La Mordorée

Domaine de La Mordorée (a nod to the bronze colour of the woodcock, the property’s emblem) was created in 1986 when Christophe Delorme gave up his original trade to focus purely on winegrowing and wine. From the outset, this enthusiast insisted on a high standard of work both in the vineyards and at the winery. He very quickly earned his reputation as one of the top winegrowers among the new generation in the southern Rhône, his somewhat “modern” style leaning towards power and concentration. The range is extensive and includes red and white wines in the Tavel, Châteauneuf-du-Pape, Lirac and Condrieu appellations. The vineyards cover 55 hectares, divided into 38 different plots scattered across eight communes. Today, the domain has abandoned the use of chemical herbicides and received organic certification for all wines, except Condrieu, in 2013. In addition to the usual organic practices, it is very proud to have re-established an entire ecosystem among the vines. In the late 90s Christophe was joined by his brother Fabrice who has been running the domain on his own since Christophe died suddenly of a heart attack in 2015.
