Domaine De La Mordoree

In 1986, the brothers Christophe and Fabrice Delorme, along with their father Francis, decided to dedicate themselves to their passion for wine. They bought an estate in Tavel with the goal of producing the best wines in each appellation while preserving the environment. Within a decade, they had achieved that goal, and continued getting better and better each year. Domaine de la Mordoree produces some of the best wines, and they have selected and maintained some of the finest terroirs. Their Châteauneuf-du-Papes, Lirac Reds & Whites, and Tavel Rosés are amidst the most highly rated of the region.

The vineyard consists of 55 hectares (135 acres), on 38 different parcels, which provide with a rich, wide range of soils and climates. The soil is a mix of clay, chalk and sand with pebble stones. The improvements at the Domaine have been incredible: new pneumatic presses, new stainless steel vats, new destemmer, new vinification and aging plant, and aging in oak barrels for the top wines. All the grapes are raised by culture raisonnée which is very close to organic viticulture (intervention in the vineyard only when necessary). The yield is reduced in the vineyard by ébourgeonnage (de budding in spring) and vendanges vertes in summer (green harvesting). Oak aging for the top wines in special barrels like "jupille" for 10 months. No expense is spared at this Domaine to achieve quality.

Wine Advocate 89 "Another terrific red is the 2015 Côtes du Rhône La Dame Rousse, which has serious polish and elegance for a Côtes du Rhône. Black cherries, raspberries, garrigue and licorice all emerge from this medium-bodied, silky effort that’s an excellent value well worth a multi-bottle

Domaine de la Mordoree La Dame Rousse Tavel Rose 2014
93  Wine Advocate 
Wine Advocate 93 "Truthfully, I think the 2014 Tavel La Dame Rousse is every bit as profound as the more expensive Reine des Bois cuvee, and the entry level Cotes du Rhone rosé, while made in a slightly more fresh style, is just as good as well. Sporting similar notes of framboise, orange blossom,

Wine Advocate 93-96 "The 2009 Chateauneuf du Pape Cuvee de la Reine des Bois (made from an identical blend with an identical upbringing) is also one of the most impressive efforts of the vintage. However, Christophe Delorme and his brother, Fabrice, have fashioned so many great Reine des Bois, it
