Buy 6 bottles of the Domaine de la Mordoree 2014 Cotes du Rhone Rose’ la Dame Rousse
Your Price: $16.99/bottle*
Serious winemaking and Rose’ are not often associated with each other. Yet any discussion of the great Rose’ of the world must include Domaine de la Mordoree and the winemaking passion and integrity of the Delorme brothers.
The philosophy and actions they follow are guided by environmental awareness and a respect for nature and all facets of the wine grower process. One of their greatest prides is to have perfectly healthy vines and to have re-created durable ecosystems in their vineyards.
To say they are involved with their grapes is an understatement and is best described by the Delormes themselves in their philosophy on wine growing:
“Being a wine grower means knowing one’s vineyard by heart: knowing every individual vine.”
“Being a wine grower is having both feet deeply rooted in one’s land, in its very soil, feeling what the vine feels, and adapting the winemaking process to the different fruits.”
“Being a wine grower is not applying scientific methods blindly: the heart of wine growing is man, with his instinct, passion, intuition, and improvisation. This is perhaps the main difference between wines that are technically perfect and wines that have a soul.”
The 2014 Cotes du Rhone Rose’ la Dame Rousse is a blend of 40% Grenache, 30% Syrah, 15% Cinsault, with the remainder Carignan and Mourvedre. It is a light rose’ with beautiful fruit aromas of strawberry, cherry and citrus, backed by a fresh and lively mouth feel.
92 Points, Jeb Dunnuck, Robert Parker’s Wine Advocate: “Clean, crisp and lively, with gorgeous watermelon, citrus blossom, rose petal and hints of minerality all emerging from the glass, the 2014 Cotes du Rhone Rose la Dame Rousse is more fresh and lively than the two Tavel releases, yet certainly doesn't lack for depth, length or flavor intensity. Medium-bodied, juicy, clean crisp, it's one of those few rosés that has the ability to instantly transport you to a seaside village, overlooking the Mediterranean, on a gorgeous summer day. Buy this rocking effort by the case and drink it over the coming year or two. It will be better in a few months and still be drinking beautifully next year as well.”
