Food Pairings for Mordoree Cdr Rouge la Dame Rousse
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.
External Reviews for Mordoree Cdr Rouge la Dame Rousse
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.
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.
The 2005 Tavel Rosé 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 rosés.
An astounding characterful roseacute;, the Mordoreacute;e 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.
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.
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.
