2012 Domaine de la Mordorée Tavel Rosé Reine des Bois - 93 PTS - WA

Wine Advocate 93 Pts"The 2012 Tavel Rose la Reine des Bois is a knockout blend of 60% Grenache, 15% Clairette, 10% Syrah, 10% Cinsault and 5% Bourboulenc. It’s the deepest in color of the rose lineup and dishes out brilliant aromas and flavors of strawberry, rose petal, red currants and mineral to go with a rich, full-flavored profile on the palate. Despite all of the texture here, it never seems heavy and has gorgeous acidity that focuses the finish nicely. While I think most roses should be consumed in the first year after the vintage, the Tavels from this estate have the ability to actually improve with a year in bottle and drink nicely for 2-3 years. Drink now-2016. .- JD"

2013 Domaine de la Mordorée Tavel Rosé Reine des Bois - 92 PTS - VINOUS

"vinous logo 250Dark pink. Highly fragrant, mineral-accented cherry, raspberry and blood orange scents, along with hints of peach pit and garrigue. Shows very good clarity and heft on the palate, offering red fruit preserve, tangerine and floral pastille qualities given spine by juicy acidity. Packs a serious punch but comes off nervy and precise; the mineral note drives a long, sappy finish. - Josh Raynolds"

2013 Mordoree Tavel Rose La Reine des Bois - 92 PTS - IWC

tanzer iwc 92 pts"(made from 60% grenache, 15% clairette, 15% syrah and 10% cinsault): Vivid orange-pink. Heady red berry, citrus zest and floral scents are complicated by an intense mineral quality and subtle peach and herb qualities. Fleshy and broad on entry, then tighter in the mid-palate, offering incisive raspberry, bitter cherry and white pepper flavors. Gains power on the finish, which hangs on with excellent mineral-driven tenacity."
