Raise a glass to Christophe Delorme

by Charles Lea

It is with great sadness that we pass on the news that Christophe Delorme, charming, exemplary and thoughtful leader of Domaine de La Mordorée in the Rhone, and brilliant winemaker, died of a heart attack on the 10th June, at only 52 years old.

The Delorme family took over this domaine based in Tavel in 1986, and since its very early days the Tavel, Liracs and leading light Chateauneuf-du-Pape have featured consistently on our lists. We will miss Christophe hugely, and our thoughts are with his brother Fabrice, his family, and the whole team at the domaine.
