2019 Domaine de la Mordoree Cotes du Rhone Rouge La Dame Rousse - 90-92 PTS - JD

jeb dunnuck logo 250"A blend of Grenache, Syrah, and Mourvèdre brought up in tank, the 2019 Côtes Du Rhône La Dame Rousse is a big, rich, powerful Côtes du Rhône loaded with notions of smoked black cherries, licorice, scorched earth, and ample minerality. These all carry to a medium to full-bodied Southern Rhône that has terrific purity of fruit, ripe, present tannins, and a great finish. I love its balance and it’s going to deliver ample pleasure over the coming 4-6 years."

jeb dunnuck logo 250"The medium ruby-colored 2018 Côtes Du Rhône La Dame Rousse checks in as 40% Grenache, 30% Syrah, 15% Cinsault, and the rest Carignan and Mourvèdre, raised all in tank. It has a classic bouquet of ripe cherries, strawberries, flowers, and spice. This carries to a medium-bodied Côtes Du Rhône that has a layered, elegant texture, moderate concentration yet terrific balance, and a great finish. This is as charming and drinkable as they come."

2017 Domaine de la Mordoree Cotes du Rhone Rouge La Dame Rousse - 88-90 PTS - JD

jeb dunnuck logo 250"Blackberries, graphite, new leather, and assorted peppery notes all emerge from the 2017 Côtes du Rhône La Dame Rousse. Medium-bodied, fleshy, and ready to go, with notable purity of fruit, it's a great introduction to the style of this domaine.


This estate has unquestionably landed on its feet after the passing of Christophe Delorme in 2015, and you’ll have to go back to 2001 to find wines at the same level as these 2016s."

This rounded, plump, medium to full-bodied effort offers a classic nose of ripe dark fruits, ground herbs, pepper, and new leather. It has ample fruit, notable purity, and will drink nicely for 4-5 years."

wa89"Bursting with cherry-scented fruit, the 2016 Cotes du Rhone La Dame Rousse is a worthy value. Deeply concentrated and richly textured for a Côtes du Rhône, it should drink well for 5-8 years. - Joe Czerwinski”

wa89"Another terrific red is the 2015 Côtes du Rhône La Dame Rousse, which has serious polish and elegance for a Côtes du Rhône. Black cherries, raspberries, garrigue and licorice all emerge from this medium-bodied, silky effort that’s an excellent value well worth a multi-bottle purchase. - Jeb Dunnuck"

vinous logo 250"Lurid ruby. Aromas of ripe dark fruits, candied licorice and pungent flowers, lent vivacity by a peppery element. Plush, sweet and open-knit, offering juicy blackberry and bitter cherry flavors that become sweeter as the wine opens up. Fine-grained tannins shape a spicy, nicely persistent finish that leaves behind a note of black pepper. - Josh Raynolds"
