  • About this winery

    The Delormes of Domaine de la Mordorée are a lovely family, committed to their terroir in the broadest possible sense. For them 'terroir' is not merely an expression of geology or geography: rather it is a concept that embraces the totality of life in the place where they live and everything about the way they conduct their lives in that place.

    Plush layers of preserved plum and cherry are speckled by darker tones of licorice, granite and dried earth in this plump, enveloping red. Full bodied and rippling like silk, it's a powerful yet open-knit wine with a soft, cocoa-powder finish.

    Enticingly ripe, with dense raspberry and blackberry paste flavors forming the core while light anise, sweet spice and toast notes fill in around it. A licorice edge takes center stage through the finish. For the hedonist crowd.

    A tank-aged 50-50 blend of Grenache and Syrah, the 2016 Lirac la Dame Rousse delivers a bright, fruity combination of black cherry and plum fruit. Hints of violets and blueberries join in on the full-bodied palate, ending on a long, slightly tannic finish. Tasted twice, with consistent notes.
