The deeper colour signifies a wine with greater weight and build. On the nose the fruit is of a deep red profile, raspberry, cherries and redcurrant, all back by a gentle earthy spiciness. In the mouth you have greater structure, a dry bite, plenty of succulent red fruits once more, then some garrigue notes of wild herbs and woody spice. Never heavy, this would make a great accompaniment to wood roasted turbot, braised rabbit or a summer vegetable quiche. Drinking range: 2020 - 2023 L&S (Jun 2020)

I have a friend who lives on a boat who only buys wine from this producer. And who can blame him? It makes excellent wine all over the Southern Rhone and this, the top of range Tavel, is sensational. So dark and meaty it makes the Domaine Maby above seem like a slip of a thing from Provence. Drink this with steak cooked rare and don’t be afraid of spicy sauces. This wine has it covered.Henry Jeffreys, The Spectator (Jun 2020)

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'.
