Fruity, fresh, indulgent and balanced by its fine tannins, this Châteauneuf-du-Pape is a real little gem you mustn't forget! More info

This particularly fruity cuvée (ripe red fruit), floral (violet) and with liquorice notes offers up a particularly generous texture. Balanced by a wonderful freshness and lovely fine tannins, it lingers well and will pair beautifully with red meat and flavoursome cheeses. To achieve this, the domain which favours organic cultivation of these grape varieties, uses total destemming, a long maceration process and one-month fermentation. The wine is then aged in barriques (15%) and in stainless steel vats (85%) which favours the freshness of its fruity notes.

Châteauneuf-du-Pape Domaine de La Mordorée La Dame Voyageuse Famille Delorme serve at a temperature of 16°C. It will pair perfectly with the following dishes: Faisan farci aux cèpes, Agneau à la broche, Perdreaux aux girolles.

Peak: Drink until 2043

    Information about domain La Mordorée

    Domaine de La Mordorée (a nod to the bronze colour of the woodcock, the property's emblem) was created in 1986 when Christophe Delorme gave up his original trade to focus purely on winegrowing and wine. From the outset, this enthusiast insisted on a high standard of work both in the vineyards and at the winery. He very quickly earned his reputation as one of the top winegrowers among the new generation in the southern Rhône, his somewhat “modern” style leaning towards power and concentration. The range is extensive and includes red and white wines in the Tavel, Châteauneuf-du-Pape, Lirac and Condrieu appellations. The vineyards cover 55 hectares, divided into 38 different plots scattered across eight communes. Today, the domain has abandoned the use of chemical herbicides and received organic certification for all wines, except Condrieu, in 2013. In addition to the usual organic practices, it is very proud to have re-established an entire ecosystem among the vines. In the late 90s Christophe was joined by his brother Fabrice. After a sudden loss, it fell to his wife Madeleine and their daughter Ambre to take up the reins, bringing a wind of change to the domain.
