    Cuvée presentation

    Like its neighbour, Château Grillet, the Clos Boucher plot is blessed with southern exposure. So this is a single parcel cuvée that is only produced in the best years. After pressing and débourbage, the musts are fermented entirely in new pièces. Ageing takes place on fine lees for 6 months, and regular stirring is ensured by rotation of the pièces (Oxoline barrel-racking system). On the nose, this wine exudes aromas of peach, pear and exotic fruits. On the palate, we find good concentration, freshness and very good balance. This wine goes very well with fish, especially sauce-based dishes.

    Information about domain Delas Frères

    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.
