  • This white Lirac La Reine des Bois is a complex blend of home-grown grape varieties such as Grenache, Clairette, Viognier, Roussanne, Marsanne, Picpoul and others. These grow on rolled pebbly soil on a mixture of sand and red clay. Macerated with the skin to extract as much colour as possible, direct pressing, temperature control, fermentation in barrels (10%) and in vats (90%) are the vinification stages of this cuvée. It has a lovely golden hue with green tints. Its aromas of white and yellow fruit coupled with that of flowers embellish a long, fruity and rounded palate. This elegant wine can be kept for seven years. Perfect with a prawn risotto or a delicious comté cheese.

    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 who has been running the domain on his own since Christophe died suddenly of a heart attack in 2015.
