|Domaine de la Mordorée
and Ambre Delorme
Francis was a passioned hunter. Mordorée is the local dialect name for the great woodcock. The name of the premier wines Reine des Bois (Forrest Queen) - maybe second to Plume de Pi.
In June 2015 Christophe Delorme suddenly died far too young of age. He was certainly the createur of the wines from the domain.
Today the domain is run by his wife Madeleine and his daughter Ambre.
In 1993 Fabrice bought 5 hectares in Chateauneuf du Pape, consisting of plots located in La Crau, La Nerthe, Cabrières and Le Bois de la Ville. The wines from here have greatly helped to make the domain known in the professional wine world.
In Tavel and the surrounding area the domaine covers a total of 50.5 ha in the appellations Lirac (26 ha), Tavel (9 ha) and Cotes du Rhone (14 ha). Their best cuvées of Lirac and Tavel are among the best wines from the two appellations. The latest acquisition by Fabrice was 0.8 ha of Condrieu in the northern Rhone.
Since 2013 the vineyards has been certified agriculture biologique followed by recogniziton from Demeter as biodynamic.
