CHATEAUNEUF DU PAPE 2012

55.00

Cuvee de la Reine des Bois, Domaine de la Mordoree (Freres Delorme), Rhone

We have just 48 of these bottles at a great price to enjoy now or lay down for up to 10 years (if you can bear to keep it that long!). The 2012 is 80/10 Grenache/Mourvedre, with the balance shared between Syrah, Counoise & Vaccarese. The vines are on the famous pebbly Crau plateau and ageing is between oak and enamel tank. There is obvious complexity from the mix of grapes, with notes of hearth cinder, woodland undergrowth, black fruit, spice and game within a richly fleshy core. Power and potential to age is evident in the tannin's gentle persistence.
