A sensational wine that's up with the creme de la creme of the appellation, the inky colored 2010 St Joseph Ste Epine was raised in 40-50% new French oak, with the balance in 2- and 3-year-old barrels. It has serious minerality in its graphite, chocolate, blackberry, currants and smoked herb aromas and flavors, and frankly, tastes more like an Hermitage than a St Joseph. Full-bodied, concentrated and rich, with big tannin and a great finish, it needs to be forgotten for 3-4 years but will cruise for 20 years or more. - Jeb Dunnuck

Well-fruited, with plum, raspberry and red currant notes melded together. The sleek, polished structure holds everything together. A lovely iron note slides through the finish. Drink now through 2022. – JM

Heady aromas and flavors of candied dark berries, violet pastille and cola, with a spicy note gaining strength in the glass. Fleshy and expansive, with superb finishing clarity and subtle, fully integrated tannins. Approachable now but there's plenty of depth here to warrant cellaring.

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.
