Domaine de la Mordorée Châteauneuf-du-Pape la Reine des Bois 2021/22

75% Grenache, 10% Mourvedre, 10% Syrah, 2% Vaccarese, 3% Counoise

Biodynamic vineyard. Clay, sand, limestone and large rounded stones across several parcels

A biodynamically grown wine that is partially aged in used oak barrels. Complex black fruit aromas with pepper and a touch of spice. Medium to full-bodied on the palate, the wine has a sumptuous richness without being heavy. Lovely, sweet ripe fruit and fine tannins that build towards the end of the taste. Extremely well balanced. This wine can be drunk after 3 years but is best drunk after 6 years and will age beautifully well past the decade mark.


Shipping costs are calculated per box of 6 bottles. Each box can contain a mixed selection of wines.

Producer profile

The domaine was established in 1986 by Francis Delorme and his sons Fabrice and Christophe Delorme. The family acquired vineyards over the next 30 years and today the domaine owns 50 ha (124 acres), the majority of which is in Lirac with 9 ha in Tavel, 5 ha in Châteauneuf du Pape and 14 ha in Côtes du Rhône. The vineyards are spread out in Lirac and Tavel, so the wines reflect a diverse range of terroir within each cru. Christophe Delorme, who was the dynamic force behind the meteoric rise in Mordorée’s reputation tragically died at the age of 52. His wife, Madeleine and daughter, Ambre took over the reins and, together with the rest of the team, the domaine continues to produces fresh, stylish wines that are faithful to their diverse terroir. The domaine was certified organic in 2013 and is now certified biodynamic for their reds. Mordorée uses natural yeasts and the wines are fermented in temperature controlled stainless steel. After fermentation, the wines are matured in concrete with a small use of oak barrels for some wines. All the reds show good extraction of colour and tannin.
