The Big and Racy 2011 Mordoree, La Dame Rousse, Rose


Though we drink the Domaine de la Mordoree, La Dame Rousse, Rose every year but I was still somewhat shocked by the quality of this wine.  So much so I simply drank my glass from the first two bottles I opened amongst family and friends.  I eventually took a note from the third bottle which I opened up at home.  It is on the bigger side of rose but drinks well at a variety of temperatures and maintains its nature if drunk over several days from the refrigerator.  I recommend you grab a few bottles for a picnic or barbecue.  This wine is available at MacArthur Beverages.

2011 Domaine de la Mordoree, La Dame Rousse, Rose, Cotes du Rhone – $15
Imported by Kysela Pere et Fils.  This wine is a blend of 40% Grenache, 30% Syrah, 15% Cinsault, 10% Carignan, and 5% Counoise sourced from 20-year-old vines.  The perfumed nose wafts out of the glass with aromas of berries and florals.  The big, racy flavors of strawberries and cherries fill the mouth with some creamy feel to them.  Sweet spices coat the tongue and the wine becomes a little chewy in the aftertaste.  Very satisfying now with the stuffing to drink well over the next year.  *** Now-2013.

    For the past two years, I’ve enjoyed the Cote du Rhone more than the Tavel. This is a great rose to give as a gift, too.
