The domaine was established in 1986 by Francis Delorme and his sons Fabrice and Christophe Delorme. The family acquired vineyards over the next 30 years and today the domaine owns 50 ha (124 acres), the majority of which is in Lirac with 9 ha in Tavel, 5 ha in Châteauneuf du Pape and 14 ha in Côtes du Rhône. The vineyards are spread out in Lirac and Tavel, so the wines reflect a diverse range of terroir within each cru.

Christophe Delorme, who was the dynamic force behind the meteoric rise in Mordorée’s reputation tragically died at the age of 52. His wife, Madeleine and daughter, Ambre have recently taken over the reins and, together with the rest of the team, the domaine continues to produces fresh, stylish wines that are faithful to their diverse terroir.

The domaine is certified organic and now also embraces biodynamic approaches. Mordorée uses natural yeasts and the wines are fermented in temperature controlled stainless steel. After fermentation, the wines are matured in concrete with a small use of oak barrels for some wines. All the reds show good extraction of colour and tannin.
