"Cherry and raspberry fruit races along, with a fine stony underpinning. This has weight and a little extra ripeness for a rosé, staying fresh overall. Drink now. 1,800 cases made. –JM" (WS)

"Truthfully, I think the 2014 Tavel La Dame Rousse is every bit as profound as the more expensive Reine des Bois cuvee, and the entry level Cotes du Rhone rosé, while made in a slightly more fresh style, is just as good as well. Sporting similar notes of framboise, orange blossom, white flowers and strawberries, it's a bigger, rich release that might lack a touch of the finesse and elegance found in the Reine des Bois, yet makes up for it with fabulous intensity, depth and length, while still staying clean, classy and pure. It's an incredible, full-bodied, beautiful rosé that's not for those looking for simple and quaffable. " (WA)

"Vivid pink. Ripe, lucid red berry and floral scents are complicated by hints of candied ginger and blond tobacco. Smooth and weighty on the palate, offering intense raspberry and bitter cherry flavors and a hint of tangerine. Clings with very good intensity on the finish, which features suave floral and candied citrus qualities." (VM)

"Domaine de la Mordorée’s 2014 rosés are fitting tributes to proprietor Christophe Delorme’s final vintage (he died in June 2015). This blend of 50% Grenache, 30% Syrah and 20% Cinsault is weighty and rich, blending raspberries and white chocolate into a wine that could be served as a light red wine, with grilled meats or poultry. -J.C. (9/1/2015)" (WE)

Winery Notes:
The wine is made from 60% Grenache, 10% Syrah, 10% Cinsault, 10% Mourvèdre, 5% Bourboulenc, 5% Clairette.

Steady pink, brilliant and limpid color. Very complex nose with flowers, red and white fruits aromas. Round, full bodied with a long lasting aniseed and fruity finish.
