Great refreshing red. Light on foot it packs plenty of flavour into a thirst-quenching drink. Crunchy fruit and fine acid match red fruits a little spice and flowers. So easy to devour, perfect as the weather warms. 50% Grenache 50% Syrah. Made from 40 year old vines this is 100% tank fermented.
“Domaine de la Mordoree continues to fashion some of Châteauneuf-du-Pape’s most exciting wines as well as Lirac, rosés from Tavel, and sensational Côtes du Rhône’s.”
Robert Parker Jnr.
Domaine de la Mordorée was founded 34 years ago by the recently deceased Christophe Delorme whose work is continued by his wife (Madeleine) daughter (Ambre) longtime cellarmaster Rémy Chauvet in concert with two Châteauneuf enologists. These are modern styled Rhône’s farmed bio-dynamically that combine the subtle use of French oak for its top wines. The un-oaked ‘La Dame Rousse’ range deliver some of the greatest QPR wines anywhere in the vinous world. Witness the fine quality of these wines, even in difficult vintages, to grasp their inherent quality. The Lirac and Châteauneuf-du-Pape ‘Cuvée De La Reine Des Bois’ wines are compelling – rich, classy and concentrated. Mordorée is a genuine superstar of modern-day viticultural France.
Domaine de la Mordorée is based in Tavel, close to where the Rhône Valley meets the Languedoc. The hold plantings across Tavel, Lirac, Châteauneuf-du-Papes in the southern Rhône, and, Condrieu in the northern Rhône.

“A lovely, concentrated wine full of lively sweet berry fruits – blackcurrant, black cherry, damson and plum with a sumptuous texture and spicy, dry finish. It’s bright and polished and very easy to drink. Made with organically grown Syrah and Grenache grapes from the estate’s 15ha of top vineyard holdings in Lirac.”
