The awesome 2010 Condrieu Clos Boucher exhibits abundant notes of crushed rocks flowers honeysuckle white peach and apricot marmalade. With great intensity freshness and definition it should drink well for 5-6 years.Another great negociant with significant vineyard holdings and at the top of their game is undeniably Delas owned by the Louis Roederer/Deutz Champagne firm. Since they acquired Delas well over a decade ago this firm has been under the management of Burgundian Jacques Grange who has done an outstanding job producing a sensational array of wines. The 2009s appear to be their finest overall performances to date and the 2010s are noteworthy successors in a more restrained mineral dominated crisper style.

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.
