Another terrific red is the 2015 Côtes du Rhône La Dame Rousse, which has serious polish and elegance for a Côtes du Rhône. Black cherries, raspberries, garrigue and licorice all emerge from this medium-bodied, silky effort that’s an excellent value well worth a multi-bottle purchase.

Lurid ruby. Aromas of ripe dark fruits, candied licorice and pungent flowers, lent vivacity by a peppery element. Plush, sweet and open-knit, offering juicy blackberry and bitter cherry flavors that become sweeter as the wine opens up. Fine-grained tannins shape a spicy, nicely persistent finish that leaves behind a note of black pepper. Drinking range: 2017 - 2020 Rating: 89 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 as a winemaker 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 climates. Seeking to make the minimum long-term impact on nature, they practiced culture raisonnée'.
Christophe's approach was so 'raisonnée' that he held back from being fully organic because he was worried about the long-term effect of putting too much copper (the form of copper sulphate, a permitted treatment in organic viticulture) onto his vineyards. Now due to the improvements on formulations, and work done in disease prevention, they can use copper sulphate with very low concentrations, these levels are not impacting the soils.
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 his brother Fabrice and 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'.
