In the same class as the great single-vineyard Cote Roties made by Marcel Guigal (i.e., La Mouline, La Turque, and La Landonne), La Mordoree is most akin to La Mouline in its seductive, otherworldly fragrance and layers of sweet, expansive, velvety-textured fruit. There were 400 cases made of this saturated purple-colored wine. Its huge bouquet and spectacularly rich, layered personality offer an astonishing example of what low yields from a naturally farmed vineyard and an unfined, unfiltered winemaking philosophy can achieve.


Winemaker's Notes:

Grape variety Syrah. Average age of the vines (more than 60 years old) is a guarantee of exceptional quality. Soil Chlorite and ferruginous mica-schists, gorre and granite, in loess depression and earth veins. The parcel of land producing this wine is located on the edge of the « Côte Blonde ». Harvesting Hand harvesting at peak maturity. Matching food with wines Small game (pheasant, duck) Tender, red meat Dishes in red wine sauces Soft cheeses Vinification The grapes ferment in open wooden vats after total destemming. A treadings ensures a good extraction of the colour and tannins. The temperature of fermentation does not exceed 32°C. Maturing In oak casks (225 liters), of which a third is new. This wine is unfiltered and unfined. Can be kept for up to 20 years and more Tasting Colour : Deep purple red. Noze : Rapsberry, a hint of violet, a touch of olive and "tapenade", of rosemary, with a dominante of spice. Mouth : Full flavoured, elegant, very well-structured and balanced.
