2018 Domaine de la Mordoree Lirac Blanc La Reine des Bois - 91 PTS - WA

wa"The oak in the 2018 Lirac Blanc La Reine des Bois has been pared back to only 10% (used barrels), allowing more melon fruit to show through than in the past. A blend of 35% Grenache, 25% Clairette, 15% Roussanne, 10% each Marsanne and Viognier and 5% Picpoul, it's full-bodied, round and honeyed. Soft and approachable, it should be consumed over the next year or two. Tasted twice (once blind), with one sample lacking fruit and length (sub-threshold TCA?).- Joe Czerwinski”

2015 Domaine de la Mordoree Lirac Blanc La Reine des Bois - 92 PTS - WA

wa92"I continue to be impressed by this cuvée and the 2015 Lirac Cuvee de La Reine des Bois Blanc is another beautiful wine. Offering terrific notes of stone fruits, citrus blossom and a hint of freshly peeled apples, it has medium to full-bodied richness, integrated acidity and a great finish. This puppy has the freshness and purity to stand on its own, as well as the richness and depth to shine on the dinner table. - Jeb Dunnuck"

vinous logo 250"Bright, green-tinged straw. Fresh melon and nectarine scents are enlivened by suggestions of honey, chamomile and candied orange. Fleshy, expansive and dry, offering juicy pit fruit and melon flavors and a subtle touch of succulent herbs. Smoothly combines heft and vivacity and finishes long, seamless and floral, displaying a lingering hint of poached pear. - Josh Raynolds"

2014 Domaine de la Mordoree Lirac Blanc La Reine des Bois - 91 PTS - WA

wa91"A smokin’ white, the 2014 Lirac Cuvee de la Reine des Bois Blanc sports a light gold color to go with tons of citrus blossom, crushed rock, hints of peach, and more brioche and nuttiness (even though this was raised all in stainless steel) developing on the finish. It has terrific freshness, good overall richness and an impeccably balanced feel, all of which will allow it to drink nicely for 2-4 years. - Jeb Dunnuck"
