"Domaine de la Mordorée (woodcock), located in the town of Tavel, in the Southern Rhône Valley, is a consistent producer of top-quality wine, in every price point. In 1986, the brothers Christophe and Fabrice Delorme decided to dedicate themselves to their passion for wine. They started their own estate with the objective to produce the best wines in each appellation while preserving the environment. Parker says: ""Christophe Delorme's objective as a winemaker is to be unintrusive and maintain total respect for his terroir and the fruit it produces. His dream is to achieve a perfect balance between concentration, terroir and flavors. Delorme seems to be moving in the direction of biodynamic farming. He represents the best of an enlightened approach to winemaking that has one foot in the traditions of the past and one in the future." Their Lirac "La Dame Rousse" is equal parts hand-harvested grenache and syrah from 40-year-old vines. It shows raspberry, black-currant and violet aromas and is full bodied, rich and ample on the palate. Nice concentration and a long finish Pairs well with red meats, grilled meats, game and cheeses."
