Grape(s): Syrah, Counoise, Grenache, Carignan, Cinsault
Localization: Rhone Valley, France
Tasting Notes: A very satisfying red Cotes-du-Rhone with plenty of black-cherry fruit and rather fine-grained tannins filling out the expansive palate. Lively acidity lifts the finish nicely. A blend of grenache and syrah with a touch of cinsault. From biodynamically grown grapes with Demeter certification. Drink now.
Food pairing: Red meats, grilled meats, game and cheeses.
The Domain: Ideally situated at the crossroads of Provence and Languedoc, the Domaine de la Mordoree produces some of the greatest vintages of the Rhone valley: Lirac, Tavel, Chateauneuf-du-Pape, and Condrieu.
Coming from a long line of winegrowers, the Domaine de la Mordoree was created in 1986 to grow the best possible wines. To that purpose, the best plots and the finest varieties have been chosen, and the winemakers implement cultivation methods that aim at really preserving the environment while combining tradition and modernity.
In the course of time, 55 hectares of vineyards have been grown, spread over 35 different plots and 8 communes. This division comes from the decision of choosing the best "terroirs" with a wide variety of microclimates.
