Domaine de la Mordorée Lirac Cuvée la Reine des Bois 2022/21/20

40% Syrah, 30% Grenache, 30% Mourvedre

Biodynamic vineyard. Clay, sand, limestone and large rounded stones. The high sand content gives very silky tannins.

This is a biodynamically grown wine that has a much higher proportion of Syrah and Mouvèdre than is typical for Southern Rhône red. It is, therefore, more full-bodied in style. It is partially aged in used oak barrels.

Deep, dark red in colour with blueish hints. Highly fruity aromas – raspberry, bilberry, blackberry – combine with violet notes and a touch of coffee. Elegant, rounded tannins derived from a sandy terroir and careful winemaking give a very silky style of wine. Lovely purity of fruit with notes of pepper and minerals. Really lovely length of flavour with great balance. Whilst it can be drunk now, this classy Lirac (it’s hard to find better in the appellation) will reward you over 5 to 12 years of ageing.


Shipping costs are calculated per box of 6 bottles. Each box can contain a mixed selection of wines.

Producer profile

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 took 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 was certified organic in 2013 and is now certified biodynamic for their reds. 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.
