Domaine de la Mordorée Lirac Blanc la Reine des Bois 2010

Winemaker's Notes:

This wine is dark pink in color. The nose is that of red berry, cassis and cherry pit, complicated by dried flowers. Fresh, yet quite rich, offering spicy raspberry and dark berry flavors.

Ideally located at the crossroads of Provence and Languedoc, the Domaine de la Mordorée produces some of the greatest vintages of the Rhone Valley : Châteauneuf du Pape, Lirac, Tavel. Our philosophy has always been to produce the greatest wines possible. To achieve this goal we have selected the best parcels of land, the highest grade grapes and developed environmental friendly wine growing methods. The vinification and maturation of our wines combine both tradition and modernity. The fruits of our efforts were quickly rewarded with prizes, in the Paris Agricultural Fair as well as other fairs where we have won over 160 medals since 1985. The specialized press and the greatest wine reviewers, like the Revue du Vin de France, Wine Spectator, or Parker have acknowledged and praised the quality of our wines. Read less

Vivid pink. Expressive bouquet evokes wild strawberry, cherry skin, dried rose and a deeper note of licorice. Juicy, penetrating red fruit flavors stain the palate, picking up a dusty note of talc on the back end. Deftly combines depth and vivacity and finishes with lingering red berry flavors and a refreshing kick of blood orange.

The 2009 Tavel La Dame Rousse rose (60% Grenache, 20% Syrah, 10% Cinsault, and 10% Clairette) is a bigger effort displaying impressive notes of spring flowers, red and black currants, cherries, strawberries, and licorice. Aromatically, it reminds me of a red wine. In the mouth, it is medium to full-bodied with super fruit as well as a lush personality. To me, it is nearly the equivalent of the more expensive Tavel La Reine des Bois.

Ripe and very focused, featuring a deliciously pure beam of cherry and fleshy strawberry fruit, laced with hints of jasmine and cherry blossom. The finish is long and mouthwatering. Drink now.

Ripe, with plump watermelon and cherry notes framed by a bright, stony edge. Long and juicy on the well-detailed finish. Drink now.

Bold cherry color, with lots of ripe cherry and raspberry fruit on a lush frame. Great stony undertow stretches out the finish to let the fruit linger. Drink now.

A brilliant salmon color with a complex nose of flowers, cherries and cranberries. Round and full bodied, with a long-lasting finish. This is usually one of the finest roseacute; wines produced each year and the 2010 is the finest we have ever tasted from this producer.
