    Cuvée presentation

    La Plume du Peintre de la Mordorée is the domain's top cuvée, produced with very small yields (15hl/ha) and in small quantities. The first vintage produced goes back to 2003. Based on very old vines of Grenache, Syrah and Mourvèdre, divided equally, it has led to more attentive care: harvests done by hand, long maceration then 30-day fermentation and finally total ageing in oak barrels. This opulent wine with red and black fruit, mocha, coffee, leather and truffle showcases remarkable breadth and impressive length. It is a great wine for ageing, for around thirty years.

    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.
