The Tavel La Dame Rousse 2016 of Domaine de la Mordorée displays a pretty pink colour with shades of blue. The nose develops aromas of red fruits (strawberries, cherries, gooseberries), citrus fruits (pink grapefruit) and yellow fruits (mandarin), along with delicate floral notes (old roses). On the palate, the Dame Rousse 2016 offers roundness and great freshness.
This comment will need to be modified when the wine inevitably evolves with time.
Wine Advocate-Parker :
Continuing the march up the rosé quality ladder, the 2016 Tavel La Dame Rousse is a plump, medium to full-bodied wine bursting with melon, peach and berry notes. Drink this blend of six grapes over the next year or so.
