It's a charming, balanced, impeccably put together Crozes Hermitage that can be drunk today or cellared for 8-10 years. This cuvée is always destemmed and brought up in a mix of tank and a small part in barrel.

Lively cherry and blackberry aromas are complemented by suggestions of smoky minerals, olive and candied flowers. Juicy black and blue fruit flavors show very good clarity and pick up hints of star anise, violet and cracked pepper as the wine opens up. Shows fine definition and energy on a long, focused finish that features discreet tannins and lingering floral and spice qualities. -- 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.
