Mordoree Cdr Rouge la Dame Rousse 2011

Member Review by dynowine:

It was hard to stop drinking this wine; it would impress your friends at a spring get-together and would be enjoyable to those who like either reds or whites. This elegant rose presents an inviting nose of mineral and cooling berry fruit; in the mouth had a pleasant initial acid bite which promptly opened into a glycerin-covered pulse of rich warm fruit and mineral with a hint of flowers. Finish lingers deliciously with a gentle sweet, oily, floral taste. Everything was well-balanced and nothing was extreme, and the wine seemed to be transmitting on all the important channels. Off-dry, medium acid, medium body, complex. Yum. Serve at 55 deg F.

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

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.

Ripe and long, with a juicy beam of raspberry, strawberry and cherry notes laced with hints of dried orange peel and hot stone. The finish is solid and juicy. Drink now.

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.

The 2005 Tavel Roseacute; is one of my favorite summer quaffing wines, but it can only last a year and within two months of this report the 2006 will probably be hitting the marketplace. One of the advantages of the 2005 growing season and the cooler conditions is that there is terrific acidity not only in the reds but also the whites and roseacute;s.

An astounding characterful rosé, the Mordorée Tavel has a hugely complex nose of cherry, carnation and strawberry set against a backdrop of herbes de Provence. Intensely flavorful in the mouth, this wine finishes on a long note of lemon zest and white cherries. An excellent foil for roast pork.

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.

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.
