Based in the southern Rhône, Domaine de la Mordorée makes magical wine that is consistent and punches well above its price point. Marked by its gentle, fleshy, sweet fruit, it’s delicious with roasts. Will Lyons, The Sunday Times (Dec 2016)

Juicy and engaging, with ripe strawberry, cherry and damson plum flavors that drive through the finish. A stony hint imparts spine. Drink now. Rating: 89 James Molesworth, The Wine Spectator (Jun 2016)
Bright violet. Potent smoke- and earth-accented aromas of ripe dark berries and floral pastilles, lent vivacity by a vibrant mineral element. Sappy and palate-staining, offering juicy boysenberry and bitter cherry flavors given spine and lift by tangy acidity. Clings with very good tenacity on the youthfully tannic finish, which echoes the blue fruit and smoke notes. Drinking range: 2018 - 2023 Rating: 91 Josh Raynolds, www.vinousmedia.com (Jun 2016)
Domaine de la Mordorée
Started in 1986 by the Delorme family, Domaine de la Mordorée has become one of the top estates in the Rhône, with arguably the most consistent quality. The word 'Mordorée', literally 'bronze' or 'golden-brown' is one of the many poetic names for a woodcock, the symbol of the domaine. Other such names include the cuvée names - 'La Belle Voyageuse' (the beautiful traveller), and 'La Dame Rousse' (the russet lady). Founding winemaker Christophe Delorme's objective was to be unintrusive and maintain total respect for his terroir and the fruit it produces, striving to achieve a perfect balance between concentration, terroir and balance.
The domaine consists of 55 Hectares, on 38 different parcels, providing a rich, wide range of soils and micro-climates. The whole domaine has been certified organic since 2007.
Following Christophe's untimely death in 2015, his wife and daughter, Madeleine and Ambre, have taken on the running of the domaine, ably assisted by Rémy Chauvet, who was the cellarmaster under Christophe. As Jeb Dunnuck has put it in the Wine Advocate, 'the estate is obviously still in incredibly capable hands'.
