"A deep plum red, with a strong nose of red liquorice, overripe raspberries and some dried herbs. The full-bodied palate is ripe yet is balanced by a streak of acidity running through it. The tannins are evident to a lesser extent, and this wine is drinkable now but has a few more years of development. 88/100."

89 points "Much richer, denser, and headier than the regular bottling is the 2004 Lirac Cuvee de la Reine des Bois. This is a beauty. Deep ruby/purple with big, sweet black raspberry, truffle, and graphite notes intermixed with some licorice, spice box, and earth, the wine has fabulous fruit, beautiful elegance, and a nice, supple finish. Drink it over the next 5-6 years, although it may last longer. (The 1998 is still going strong.) This is an estate that was a no-brainer for inclusion in my recent book on the world’s greatest wine estates. With 135 acres spread throughout some of the most impressive appellations of the southern Rhone, Christophe Delorme and his brother took over this estate in the early to mid-1990s and have done nothing but produce one exquisite wine after another. Of course, the top cuvees of Chateauneuf 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 Rhone and Tavel appellations. Visitors to the area will be surprised to find out that Mordoree is actually in Tavel, not Chateauneuf du Pape. " Best 2007-2013

91 points "Powerfully ripe, with raspberry and boysenberry fruit that never gets heady, thanks to the racy structure, and a long anise- and graphite-filled finish. An impressive display. Drink now through 2009. 3,000 cases made. –JM " Best 2007-2009
