The colour is a deep garnet. In its youth the wine reveals black cherry aromas which will evolve towards notes of woodland and spices. On the palate, this is a warm, heady wine whose texture is well-rounded and silky. The finish is perfectly balanced.

Founded 160 years ago in the heart of the northern Côtes du Rhône, Delas Freres today crafts world class wines from both northern and southern Rhône.

Tending the steep sloping vineyards, which total some 30 hectares of vines, the team adapt their growing practices to each plot of vines to let the terroir of the Rhône shine through in the wines.

Crafted by winemaker Jacques Grange (who is originally from Burgundy), the wines from Delas Freres epitomise finesse and elegance. Recent vintages from the vineyards of Hermitage, Crozes-Hermitage, Chateauneuf-du-Pape, Côte Rôtie, Condrieu, Côtes-du-Rhône and Côtes-du-Ventoux have bee lauded in the press for their intensity of flavour and excellent value.

The soils consist mainly of red clay and stony alluvium over hillsides or wide terraces. The climate is southern, hot and dry, with 2,800 hours average sunshine per year, which is tempered by the Mistral wind.

After crushing and de-stemming, the alcoholic fermentation takes place in stainless steel tanks during a period of 10 days. This is followed by 8 to 10 days maceration to improve extraction. After drawing off and pressing, the malolactic fermentation takes place in tanks.

The wine is racked and aerated to allow stabilisation of its ingredients. It is then kept in tanks, to preserve the freshness of its aromas, before being bottled after 12 months of ageing.

This wine goes particularly well with rich sauces, game and red meat dishes.
