Even better, with more minerality and elegance, the blockbuster 2015 Saint Joseph Sainte Epine comes from this cool, windy, granite site located just outside of the small village of Saint-Jean-de-Muzols. Destemmed and brought up in 40% new oak, its vibrant purple color is followed by full-bodied notes of black raspberries, cassis, crushed rocks, and spring flowers. It’s concentrated, has awesome purity of fruit, and stays compact and tight on the palate. Hide bottles for 3-4 years. This wine should evolve for 10-15 years or more.

Youthfully tight, featuring a core of dark currant, blackberry and black cherry paste flavors, held in check for now by smoldering charcoal and singed cast iron notes. Grippy through the finish, with flashes of white pepper, savory and tobacco checking in. Delivers mouthwatering cut and drive. Let this unwind in the cellar. Best from 2021 through 2030. — J.M.

It shows great concentration, pouring across the palate in a single jolt of dark fruit, expanding and intensifying on the powerful finish. Black cherries and plums carry hints of molten rock, charcoal and other inorganic complexities, which are brightened by crisp acids and buffered by firm tannins. - Joe Czerwinski

Dark berries, potpourri, peppery spices and smoky minerals on the highly perfumed nose. Juicy, penetrating and alluringly sweet, offering densely packed blackberry, cherry compote and violet flavors that are lifted and sharpened by a spine of juicy acidity. Supple tannins add grip to the impressively persistent, mineral-laced finish, which strongly repeats the floral note. -- Josh Raynolds

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.
