After a few years in the cellar, this structured and full-bodied wine’s pepper and liquorice notes will be at their elegant best. More info
This cuvée is blended from grapes cultivated on various south-facing vineyard plots. The grapes are harvested by hand and fermented in concrete vats. After this, the wine is matured for 14 months in oak. It is fairly dark in colour with notes of blackcurrant, pepper and liquorice on the nose. Its structure makes for a full-bodied wine, to keep in the cellar for some years and for pairing with full-flavoured and hearty dishes.
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.
