Not yet bottled but potentially the finest dry white Delas has ever made the 2009 Hermitage Domaine des Tourettes Blanc was made from 100% Marsanne aged in 100% oak. The wood component is pushed to the background with the dominant characteristics being honeyed caramelized citrus orange marmalade nectarine crushed rocks and white currants. This full-bodied white should drink well over its first 7-8 years of life then close down and re-open at age 20-25.

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.
