WTN: 2001 Domaine de la Mordoree Lirac

2001 Domaine de la Mordoree Lirac “La Dame Rousse” – A dark reddish-purple in color. Nose has some nice berry, cherry, black pepper, and dust aromas, with a little bit of a menthol quality. Flavors are pretty juicy, with blackberry and cherry, and also some cocoa powder and peppery spice. A fairly forward wine. For the most part, a smooth texture, with lighter tannins providing a little bit of grip right at the end. Not a lot of acidity, but there is enough to allow it to stand up to some food. This would make a decent pizza wine. Tasty, but it is not overly complex or profound. This wine was a recent bargain bin purchase for $17. I may grab a couple more for some daily drinkers.

All the best,

Jean
