95+ I tasted the 2005 Cote Rotie La Landonne earlier in the year, and it showed almost identically this go around. Still tight, structured and backwards, with the tannic bite that’s common in the vintage, it gives up... 95+ I tasted the 2005 Cote Rotie La Landonne earlier in the year, and it showed almost identically this go around. Still tight, structured and backwards, with the tannic bite that’s common in the vintage, it gives up lots of charcoal, graphite and meaty dark fruits as well as full-bodied richness, a big mid-palate and building tannin on the finish. It needs another 3-4 years of cellaring and will be very long lived. - Jeb Dunnuck

Winery

Delas Freres

Founded in 1835 by Charles Audibert and Phillipe Delas, the celebrated Delas Freres winery grows 30 hectares of vines comprising 10 hectares in Hermitage (including the Domaines des Tourettes estate), 2 hectares in Saint-Joseph, and 18 hectares in Crozes-Hermitage.

In addition to the grapes produced by Delas' own wine growing team, Delas' close relationships with like-minded owner-winegrowers ensure that the company is able to source grapes grown on individual parcels, which reflect their own unique terroir.

Exclusively a family-owned operation for over a century, Delas Freres joined forces with Champagne Deutz in 1977. In 1993, Deutz and Delas Freres were approached by the Rouzaud family, majority shareholder in the Roederer Group. They joined the Roederer Group under whose umbrella Delas' philosophy continues to flourish.
