Domaine de la Mordorée 2012 La Dame Rousse Grenache-Syrah (Lirac)

  • Editors' Choice
  • Online Exclusive
  1. $24

Located in Tavel, Domaine de la Mordorée has been one of the quality leaders in neighboring Lirac. This wine is dark and earthy at first, but opens with airing to reveal bold notes of blueberry, mocha and peppery spice. This 50-50 blend of Grenache and Syrah is full bodied, richly textured and finishes long.

Domaine de la Mordorée 2007 La Dame Rousse Rosé (Tavel)

  • Editors' Choice
  • Online Exclusive
  1. $29

A terrific expression of its appellation, the 2007 La Dame Rousse from Domaine de la Mordorée starts off a bit tight and minerally on the nose, then explodes on the palate with layers of cherries, peaches, warm stones and dried spices. It’s full-bodied and rich, with a long, spice-driven finish. Treat it like a light red, serving it with charcuterie or simple…

Domaine de la Mordorée 2009 La Dame Rousse Rosé (Tavel)

  • Online Exclusive
  1. $24

An astoundingly 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.

Domaine de la Mordorée 2010 La Dame Rousse Red (Côtes du Rhône)

  • Online Exclusive
  1. $19

Mordorée’s Côtes du Rhône is a classic blend built around 40% Grenache and 30% Syrah, with smaller amounts of the other permitted varieties. The result combines scents of leather and roasted meat with cherries and dark overtones of cocoa and coffee. It’s a nicely balanced, full-bodied wine, with just a touch of coarseness to its texture. Drink now-2016.

This medium- to full-bodied rosé features bold aromas of lime, mineral and ripe cherries, while the flavors run toward white chocolate, citrus and red fruits. There’s a satisfyingly fatty character to this wine’s flavors and texture, persisting through the long finish.
