A gorgeous effort that oozes charm and finesse (which is rare for this cuvee as it is normally backward and structured on release), the 2011 Chateauneuf du Pape Cuvee de la Reine des Bois (85% Grenache and the balance Mourvedre and Syrah) is loaded with darker Grenache aromas and flavors of black raspberries, toast, licorice, subtle flowers and spice. Up-front, approachable and showing the forward nature of the vintage, it has full-bodied richness, fantastic purity and enough ripe tannin to allow it to evolve gracefully for 10-12 years. It opens up nicely in the glass and over the evening, and should be given another year or two in the cellar. It’s a beautiful wine
