The 2006 Cote Rotie la Landonne is a head turner that has more depth and density than most in this charming vintage. Cured meats, toasted spices, licorice and black currant aromas and flavors all emerge from this full-bodied, concentrated Cote Rotie that has decadent amounts of fruit and plenty of sweet tannin. I'd happily drink bottles anytime over the coming 15+ years. - Jeb Dunnuck

Shows a rich core of plum and red currant fruit backed by notes of espresso iron and red licorice. The structure is nicely rounded and integrated with the red fruit and iron notes lingering through the medium-weight finish. A sleek modern style with plenty of terroir. Best from 2010 through 2018. -JM

Deep cassis and kirsch aromas are complicated by smoked meat dark chocolate roasted coffee and violet. A bright note of black pepper emerges with air and carries onto the palate adding vivacity to the deep dark fruit and bitter chocolate flavors. Finishes strong with bright mineral tang and a hint of blood orange.

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.
