Richer, the 2011 Crozes Hermitage Domaine des Grands Chemins exhibits impressive aromas and flavors of olive brine, salted meats, currants, and black raspberry to go with a medium to full-bodied, layered and fruit-loaded... Richer, the 2011 Crozes Hermitage Domaine des Grands Chemins exhibits impressive aromas and flavors of olive brine, salted meats, currants, and black raspberry to go with a medium to full-bodied, layered and fruit-loaded profile on the palate. While all about the fruit, this beauty has fantastic purity and polish, and should evolve gracefully for upwards of a decade. It also is a serious value! - Jeb Dunnuck

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.
