La Mordoree Tavel Cuvee Dame Rousse Rose Vallee Rhone 2009

Winemaker's Notes:

Berry Bros & Rudd review: Tavel Rosé, once so popular, seems not to have benefited from the revitalised interest in Rosé wines in general, perhaps because it is deemed stylistically to be a little clumsy and even foursquare. The Delorme brothers produce two Rosé wines to dash such a perception, but not to lose sight of the features which brought the region and style popularity in the first place.<br/><br/>Made from a tapestry of varieties (Grenache, Cinsault, Mourvèdre, Syrah, Bourboulenc and Clairette since you asked), the wine has no shortage of complexity. A rich rose in colour, the wine's aromatics continue the floral theme, adding notes of raspberry and youthful cherry. The palate is round and generous, with the red berried fruit to the fore; it will be a good match for white meat, terrines and even fusion cuisine.<br/><br/>(Simon Field MW, BBR Buyer)

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
