The 2015 Domaine de la Mordoree Chateauneuf du Pape La Dame Voyageuse is a rock solid standout in the sea of Rhone wines.
Unlike many Chateauneuf du Papes that spend many months in oak, this gem of a red sees more time in stainless steel vats. And that is what makes it so fresh and different.
There’s initially just a lot of fruit from the mostly strawberry tasting Grenache based wine. But then something happens. Like magic as the wine opens, so comes along the Provencal herbs, some toasted brioche aromas, and then the major hit of black plums.
That’s why the 2015 Domaine de la Mordoree Chateauneuf du Pape La Dame Voyageuse is today’s WineSiders’ Wine of The Day!!!
