Product
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
This single-vineyard wine comes from a south-facing site named Clos Boucher, situated very near Château Grillet. The soil is granite and due to the steep slopes of the vineyards, the fruit was harvested by hand.

Winery
After picking, the grapes were transported to the winery in small boxes. Gentle pressing yielded must which was settled then fermented in new oak barrels. The wine then aged in barrel on its lees for six months, with regular barrel rotation used to increase lees contact.

Taste
Powerful aromas of exotic fruit and peaches lead to a fresh, concentrated palate with ripe fruit flavours, a very full, smooth texture, and a subtle hint of oak.

Press
“Exotic, rich, complex, opulent – yet the palate retains a breezy, easy- drinking lightness – a rare feat for Viognier. Lengthy, pure, expressive, savoury, satisfying.” – 17.5/20, jancisrobinson.com, September 2014

“offers exotic notes of lychee, mint, flowers, citrus and big minerality in its medium-bodied, fresh, focused and elegant personality.” – 93 points, The Wine Advocate, December 2014
