The 2007 Hermitage les Bessards is a forward, sexy wine that has considerable charm in its darker fruits, smoked wood, bacon fat and mineral-laced personality. Full-bodied, fleshy, layered and sweetly fruited, drink it while you wait on the 2009 and 2010 to come around. - Jeb Dunnuck

Alluringly perfumed bouquet of raspberry mulberry five-spice powder violet and smoky minerals. Broad palate-staining red berry flavors give way to darker fruits and are complicated by notes of candied flowers and baking spices. The finish is sweet focused and very persistent. Already complex but balanced to reward at least another five to seven years of patience and probably more.

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.
