jeb dunnuck logo 250"The 2019 Cotes Du Rhone La Dame Rousse Rose offers another level of elegance and purity as well as complexity. Giving up notions of ripe strawberries, cherry blossoms, white flowers, and a kiss of minerality, it’s a beautifully textured, medium to full-bodied, incredibly balanced effort that actually has a touch more richness than the Tavel, although both are rich, textured rosés geared for the table. As with the Tavel, drink this beauty any time over the coming year or so."

i winereview logo"A very appealing, fruit forward rosé showing an exuberant, perfumed bouquet. It’s softly textured and easy drinking and, while dry, offers sweet, ripe red berry aromas and flavors that linger and linger. A perfect pairing for grilled chicken. 40% Grenache, 35% Syrah, 15% Cinsault, 5% Carignan, and 5% Mourvedre from a 14 ha parcel of 25 year old vines grown on diverse soils. - Don Winkler"

jeb dunnuck logo 250"The light pink-colored 2018 Côtes Du Rhône La Dame Rousse Rosé is a smoking rosé that offers vibrant notes of white peach, cherries, and white flowers. With plenty of texture, a rounded, mouthfilling style, and yet still incredible freshness and purity, it puts just about every barely colored Provençal rosé out here to shame. It's a gem of a rosé to enjoy over the coming summer months.."

Ripe red berries, dried spices and crushed stone all mingle easily on the bright nose and round palate, finishing long and intense. Drink now. - Joe Czerwinski"

Wild strawberries, citrus, mineral and underbrush all emerge from this layered, elegant, gorgeously balanced Rosé that has the freshness to stand on its own, yet the richness and complexity to go perfectly at the dinner table. Drink it over the coming year or so. - Jeb Dunnuck"

wa92"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. - Jeb Dunnuck"

This blend of 50% Grenache, 30% Syrah and 20% Cinsault is weighty and rich, blending raspberries and white chocolate into a wine that could be served as a light red wine, with grilled meats or poultry. - Joe Czerwinski."

tanzer iwc 90 pts"(50% grenache, 30% syrah and 20% cinsault): Vivid pink. Pungent aromas of cherry skin, blood orange and dried flowers show good clarity and a hint of anise. Chewy and broad on the palate, with tangy acidity framing the bitter cherry and citrus pith flavors. Finishes spicy and tight, with excellent cut and persistence. Punches far above its weight, but Mordoree consistently excels with its pink wines."
