Domaine de la Mordorée Lirac la Dame Rousse 2003

External Review by Premier Wine & Spirits:

A wickedly intense Rhone, as good as any Gigondas, with super-ripe flavors of plum, berry and cherry. An amazing array of spices mingles with all that fruit goodness leaving you breathless and in need of another sip. 40% Grenache, 30% Syrah, 15% Cinsault, 10% Carignan, 5% Counoise.

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

Another fine value from Christophe Delorme is his 2003 Cocirc;tes du Rhocirc;ne, a blend of 40% Grenache, 30% Syrah, and the rest Cinsault, Carignan and Counoise. A deep ruby color is accompanied by superb aromas of black raspberries, cherries, currants, dried herbs, pepper, and licorice. This ripe, medium-bodied 2003 possesses good flesh, supple tannin, and heady alcohol. Enjoy it over the next 3ndash;4 years.
