Moving to the reds from Lirac, the estate releases two cuvées: the base la Dame Rousse and the flagship La Reine des Bois. The 2015 Lirac la Dame Rousse is a top effort from this appellation that has classic, mineral-laced aromas and flavors of blackberries, mulberries, crushed rocks, graphite and peppery herbs. Rich, full-bodied and concentrated, it has lively acidity, notable tannic grip and plenty of length on the finish, all suggesting it will evolve nicely. Since the untimely death of Christophe Delorme last year, the winemaking at Domaine de la Mordorée has fallen to Rémy Chauvet, who was the cellar manager under Christophe for a number of years. Based on these 2015 barrel samples, the estate is obviously still in incredibly capable hands. (JD)
50% Grenache, 50% Syrah. Destemmed. 12 months in stainless steel. Tank sample. Tasted blind. Glowing crimson. Some real exuberance of fruit with tight tannins on the end. Ambitious...Certainly has lots of energy.
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. (JR)
