Alcohol By Volume Guide

  • 10%
  • 16+%
Most wine ranges from 10-16% alcohol by volume. Some varietals tend to have higher (for example Zinfandel and Cabernet Sauvignon) or lower alcohol levels (Pinot Noir and many white varietals), but there is always some variation from producer to producer. Some wine falls outside of this range, for instance Port weighs in closer to 20%, while Muscat and Riesling are usually a bit below 10%.

Winemaker's Notes

This wine has a steady rose color, brilliant and cristal clear. Very complex aromas from flowers, white fruits and red fruits (strawberries, pomegranate, raspberry) to slightly mentholated notes. The palate is fresh, classy, elegant and very long.

Pair with roasted and/or spicy chicken, duck, goose, fish soup, white meat and seafood, as well as most Asian cuisine. Also pairs well with dishes with garlic and dishes with tomatoes.

Blend: Grenache 60%, Clairette 15%, Cinsault 10%, Syrah 10%, Bourboulenc 5%

Critical Acclaim

"Bright orange-pink. Pungent aromas of dried red fruits, wild herbs and rose, plus a hint of blood orange. Deeply pitched red fruit flavors are complicated by dusty herbal and floral nuances. Powerful but well-balanced and dry, with lively red fruit and spice notes on the finish. Many Tavels can be ponderous, but this one isn't."

This choice was matured through long consideration and thought for both quality and environment-friendliness. The goal was clear: produce the best wine in each appellation, while preserving nature and man. La Mordoree therefore acquired new lands, broadening its vineyards and enriching its appellations with new cherished parcels of land.
