The wine is made from 40% Grenache, 30% Syrah, 15% Cinsault, 10% Carignan, 5% Mourvèdre. 20 year-old vines.
Deep pink, slightly orange color typical of Mordoree rose wines. Aromas of crystallized oranges and cherries, hints of aniseed. Very round palate, fresh and a long finish.
Food pairing: cold meats and delicatessen, fowl, white meats, grilled lamb with Provence herbs, fish soup, fried fish, pastas, pizzas and all Asian dishes.
"And speaking of a Cotes du Rhone appellation, the 2011 Mordoree La Dame Rousse Rose (40% Grenache, 20% Syrah, 15% Cinsault and the rest Carignan and Mourvedre) is gorgeous. A surprisingly full-bodied rose offering up notes of rose petals intermixed with hints of orange rind, sweet black cherries, licorice and earth, this is a big, rich, pure and intense rose to drink over the next several years.
