2018 Domaine de la Mordoree Cotes du Rhone Rouge
This has a wealth of ripe red and purple berries with a swathe of fresh flowers and some pastry notes. The palate is spiced up with some brash oak and delivers a powdery, fluffy finish. From organically grown grapes. Drink or hold.
Flavors of roasted plum and black-cherry preserve mingle into burnt caramel and cacao in this velvety blend of Grenache, Syrah and Carignan. It’s a satisfying, elevated Côtes du Rhône with a moderately long finishes that lingers on soft, smooth tannins. Best Buy.
