"Intensely fruity yet fascinatingly complex, La Reine des Bois consistently reigns as one of the best wines from Tavel. This vintage offers profound, mouthwatering black-cherry and cassis flavors accented by strikes of crushed stone and sizzling black spice. It's lush and velvety through a long, delicately tannic finish. Lovely already, the wine will drink beautifully through 2023."

"Another great rosé from this estate, the 2019 Tavel Cuvee La Reine Des Bois sports a classic Tavel deep raspberry hue yet is still a graceful, incredibly elegant rosé that offers lots of raspberry and framboise fruit as well as plenty of white flowers and spice, medium to full body, perfect balance between its acidity and fruit, and clean, dry finish. It’s as classy and elegant as rosé gets! Drink it over the coming year or so." March 2020

"With 135 acres spread throughout some of the most impressive appellations of the southern Rhône, Christophe Delorme and his brother...have done nothing but produce one exquisite wine after another. Of course, the top cuvees of Châteauneuf-du-Pape are rare and expensive, but this is a place to find terrific Cotes du Rhones and Liracs as well. Delorme is equally adept at dry whites as well as reds, and turns out some stunning roses both under the Cotes du Rhône and Tavel appellations..." Robert Parker Jr. - The Wine Advocate

Domaine de la Mordoree

View all from Domaine de la Mordoree
Domaine de la MordoreeIn 1986, the brothers Christophe and Fabrice Delorme, along with their father Francis, decided to dedicate themselves to their passion for wine. They bought an estate in Tavel with the goal of producing the best wines in each appellation while preserving the environment. Within a decade, they had achieved that goal, and continued getting better and better each year. Domaine de la Mordoree produces some of the best wines, and they have selected and maintained some of the finest terroirs. Their Châteauneuf-du-Papes, Lirac Reds & Whites, and Tavel Rosés are amidst the most highly rated of the region.

The vineyard consists of 55 hectares (135 acres), on 38 different parcels, which provide with a rich, wide range of soils and climates. The soil is a mix of clay, chalk and sand with pebble stones. The improvements at the Domaine have been incredible: new pneumatic presses, new stainless steel vats, new destemmer, new vinification and aging plant, and aging in oak barrels for the top wines. All the grapes are raised by culture raisonnée which is very close to organic viticulture (intervention in the vineyard only when necessary). The yield is reduced in the vineyard by ébourgeonnage (de budding in spring) and vendanges vertes in summer (green harvesting). Oak aging for the top wines in special barrels like "jupille" for 10 months. No expense is spared at this Domaine to achieve quality.
