ROSE, DOMAINE DE LA MORDOREE, CHATEAUNEUF DE PAPE, FRANCE, 2010
This week's wine of the week is a rose for a rainy day...
From one of the Rhone Valley's top producers of Chateauneuf du Pape, Lirac and Tavel, Domaine de la Mordorée Tavel Rose is an elegant, structured and food-friendly wine. Worthy of far more than just a sun drenched patio - this is a red wine drinkers rose so there is no need to wait for a sunny day to crack it open!
Domaine de la Mordorée has achieved the pinnacle of quality through selecting the best parcels of land, the highest grade grapes and developing environmental friendly wine growing methods.
The composition of this wine is 60% Grenache, 20% Syrah and the rest equal parts Cinsault and the white grape Clairette. Bright orange-pink. Pungent aromas of dried red fruits, wild herbs and rose, with a hint of blood orange.
