Producer
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 cuvée is a blend from three vineyard plots. 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 fermented at 16-18oC in temperature-controlled tanks, with a small proportion fermented in barrel. Following malolactic fermentation, the wine was racked and aged for several weeks on fine lees, then was bottled after a light filtration.

Taste
Rich, spicy wine showing the wonderful voluptuous texture and perfumed apricot fruit of the very best Viognier.

Press
“Bold, bright and very juicy, with pineapple, white peach, nectarine, clementine and anise notes that bounce through a heath-lined finish. Not shy at all and thoroughly delicious.” – 94 points, Wine Spectator, November 2015
