This parcel-based wine is produced only in truly great years, and in very small quantities. Characterised by its meatiness and silky tannins. More info
Produced from a single parcel (the grapes come exclusively from the "La Landonne" area), this wine, which has existed since 1997, is only made in noteworthy years. After manual harvesting, the vinification is traditionally done in concrete vats. Malolactic fermentation is carried out in oak pièces, before 14 to 16 months' ageing. This flavoursome and generous wine, with magnificent length on the palate is blessed with wonderful ageing potential. Open one to three hours before drinking.
Founded in 1835, Maison Delas Frères is a part of a very exclusive circle of the finest producers in the Rhône Valley in terms of both quality and variety of appellations. The domaine was bought by Champagne Deutz in 1977 and then by Maison Roederer in 1993 but the spirit of the wines remains unchanged and faithful to their terroir. In 1996 Fabrice Rosset (Champagne Deutz) was appointed to manage the domaine and soon realised the great potential of the vineyard. He hired Jacques Grange, a young oenologue who had already proved his worth at some of the finest Rhône domaines. Thanks to him, the quality of wines at Delas has improved hugely and the domaine has invested accordingly: the winery has been entirely refurbished and 7,000 feet of vines have been replanted. It spans 30 hectares of which 10 are in Hermitage, 18 in Crozes-Hermitage and 2 in Saint-Joseph. Delas Frères is also a negoçiant and offers wines from other appellations.
