Mordoree Lirac Rouge Dame Rousse

2018 Domaine de la Mordoree Lirac Rouge la Dame Rousse - 89 PTS - JD

jeb dunnuck logo 250"Leading off the 2018s, the classic 2018 Lirac La Dame Rousse checks in as an even split of Grenache and Syrah that was brought up all in stainless steel. It’s a more open, expressive wine compared to the more structured Reine des Bois and has loads of Provençal charm in its spicy red and black fruits, peppery garrigue, and incense aromas and flavors. Already hard to resist, this medium-bodied, front end loaded, charming 2018 will drink nicely for 4-5 years or so."

2017 Domaine de la Mordoree Lirac Rouge la Dame Rousse - 89 pts - JD

jeb dunnuck logo 250"Based on equal parts Grenache and Syrah brought up in stainless steel, the 2017 Lirac La Dame Rousse is another winner. Ripe black cherries, ground herbs, hints of leather, and tons of spice notes all emerge from this medium-bodied, supple, seamless red that's beautifully balanced. With no hard edges, light tannins, and tons of charm, it's well worth seeking out and will keep for 4-5 years."

2016 Domaine de la Mordoree Lirac Rouge la Dame Rousse - 91 pts - JD

jeb dunnuck logo 250"Another outstanding wine is the 2016 Lirac La Dame Rousse, an even split of Grenache and Syrah, completely destemmed, that was brought up in tank. It offers a full-bodied, pure, elegant style that’s very much in the style of the vintage as well as lots of dark fruits, violets, pepper, and obvious minerality. I love its purity of fruit, it’s nicely balanced, and it’s just a beautiful wine in a fabulous vintage for the southern Rhône."
