Products
Many Rhône producers have enjoyed a renaissance in the last decade, and none more so than Delas. The company has history (back to 1836) and land (twelve prime hectares, including La Landonne and Les Bessards). Since 1997, in the form of Jacques Grange, it has also had a winemaker capable of realising all that potential. Under his influence a more modern ‘boutique’ approach has been taken, and the wines now combine clarity of flavour with hedonistic appeal – surely the ultimate goal for a Rhône producer.

Vineyard
The grapes for this wine are sourced from hilly sites, on a mix of soils containing red sandy clay and quartz pebbles, owned by a grower with whom Delas have been working with for many years.

Winery
The grapes were crushed, destemmed and then fermented in open cement tanks for ten days. Maceration lasted eight to ten days in order to obtain the optimum extraction of flavors. After pressing, malolactic fermentation took place in tanks, followed by fourteen months of ageing in large oak casks.

Taste
This offers a heady blend of power, fruit and spice. Cherry, raspberry and baked plum mingle with fresh pepper and the herbs of the garrigue. Deft despite its weight, the palate finishes dry and refreshing.
