2016 Domaine de la Mordorée "La Dame Rousse" Tavel Rosé

SKU #1307816 92 points Jeb Dunnuck

 Always one of my favorite Rosés in just about every vintage, the 2016 Tavel La Dame Rousse smells like basket of freshly picked strawberries and raspberries. It shows the richer side of the vintage, yet is clean, crisp and refreshing, with bright acidity. Hat’s off to this estate for consistently delivering one of finest Rosés in the world, year in, year out. (JebDunnuck.com)  (9/2017)

91 points Vinous

 Vivid orange-pink. Fresh and focused on the nose, displaying mineral-tinged red berry and orange pith scents and a deeper suggestion of cherry pit. Taut and chewy on the palate, offering refreshingly bitter red currant and blood orange flavors underscored by a vein of juicy acidity. Closes supple, focused and quite long, leaving behind sappy red berry and tangerine notes. Drink 2018 - 2022. (JR)  (6/2017)

91 points Wine Enthusiast

 This is a full-bodied, ripe and rich example of Tavel. Flourishes of dried flowers and spices dress up ripe melons and berries, finishing long and warming. It’s a rosé tailor made for cool end-of-summer evenings.  (7/2017)

K&L Notes

Domaine de la Mordorée is a French wine producer based in the in the Rhône Valley. The first wines from the estate were produced in 1986 by brothers Christophe and Fabrice Delorme, who named the domaine after a local nickname for the woodcock. The domaine is best known for its dry rosé from Tavel and red blends from Rhône varieties such as Grenache, Syrah and Mourvedre. In the winery, Domaine de la Mordorée employs both traditional and modern winemaking techniques. Grapes are destemmed as they arrive at the winery and fermented in stainless steel. The wines are aged in new French oak and stainless steel vats before release.

Rhone Blends



- When it comes to wine, France stands alone. No other country can beat it in terms of quality and diversity. And while many of its Region, Bordeaux, Burgundy and Champagne most obviously, produce wine as rare, as sought-after and nearly as expensive as gold, there are just as many obscurities and values to be had from little known appellations throughout the country. To learn everything there is to know about French wine would take a lifetime. To understand and appreciate French wine, one only has to begin tasting them.


- Legendary wine-producing region in southeast France. Stereotypically speaking, Rhone wines are high in alcohol, and the majority produced is red. The northern Rhone is best known for outstanding 100% Syrah wines from areas such as Cote Rotie and Hermitage, as well as for fabulous white wines from Condrieu (where Viognier is king). In the southern Rhone, look for spicy, full-bodied wines that are blends of Grenache, Syrah, and other varietals coming from appellations such as Chateauneuf du Pape, Gigondas, or Rasteau. Wines labeled as Cote du Rhone or Cotes du Rhone Village (a cut above generic Cotes du Rhone) are frequently found here in the US because they often represent some of the best values on the market.
