Proper gastronomic rosé - brilliant with food. There's body and a structural edge, then a saline freshness too - just lovely. Drinking range: 2018 - 2020 L&S (Jan 2018)

*Case price: Mix any 12 bottles of wine or 6 bottles of Champagne, Spirits or Fortified to get the 'case price' for each bottle.

Vivid orange-pink. Pungent red berry, cherry and orange zest aromas are accompanied by hints of anise and lavender. Chewy and focused on the palate, offering bitter cherry and strawberry flavors supported by a spine of juicy acidity. Smoothly blends power and finesse and finishes very long and flora; a subtle mineral flourish adds lift and cut. Rating: 92 Josh Raynolds, www.vinousmedia.com(Aug 2018)

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'.
