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
Fruit for Les Launes comes from a variety of selected vineyards on different soils within the appellation: granite, alluvial and stony loess.

Winery
The grapes were destemmed and the must fermented at 28-32oC in open concrete tanks, allowing for finely-controlled pigeage and hence gentle extraction. Malolactic took place in tank, and then a small portion of the wine was racked to oak barrels for 6-8 months while the rest remained in tank.

Taste
A fresh, medium-bodied Crozes, with aromas of cassis, plums and violets, alongside the telltale black pepper. The palate offers a supple mouthfeel and a fine mineral finish.
