External Reviews for Delas Frères Crozes-Hermitage Domaine des Grands Chemins
Opaque purple. Mineral-accented black raspberry and cherry on the hugely aromatic nose. Sweet, penetrating red and dark berry preserve flavors show excellent depth and energy, with a late note of candied licorice adding a darker tone. The finish f... Stephen Tanzers IWC. A Syrah wine from Rhone in France. 2010 Delas Freres St Joseph Ste Epine 1500ml
Inky purple. Reduced and slow to open, reluctantly giving up aromas of candied dark fruits, violet and smoky herbs. Deeply pitched black and blue fruit flavors pick up mocha and candied licorice qualities with air, along with a touch of cracked pep... Stephen Tanzers IWC.

Bright violet. Expansive bouquet shows boysenberry and blueberry liqueur Moroccan spices violet and woodsmoke. Lush seductively sweet black and blue fruit flavors stain the palate picking up suave spice and floral qualities with aeration. The finish shows a suave floral character and clings tenaciously. The tannins of this vibrant rich wine are very nicely integrated. Stephen Tanzers IWC.
Opaque ruby. Dark berries and cherry-cola on the pungent floral-accented nose and in the mouth. Shows very good depth and firm structure picking up spiciness with air. Chewy tannins give grip to a long spicy finish with a resonating note of cherry. This wine requires some time. 90+ Stephen Tanzers IWC.
The dense purple-colored 2010 Crozes-Hermitage Domaine des Grands Chemins offers abundant meaty smoky tapenade creme de cassis and bay leaf notes as well as exceptional intensity and full-bodied power. It can be drunk early in life or cellared for 10-15 years. Robert Parkers Wine Advocate.
Inky purple. Very primary aromas and flavors of cherry pit, dark berries and licorice. Sappy and densely packed, with solid finishing punch and lingering smokiness. This is a pretty tough read right now. Stephen Tanzers IWC. A Syrah wine from Rhone in France. 2010 Delas Freres Crozes Hermitage Grands Chemins 1500ml
Dense core with a dark magenta rim. The bouquet displays spicy black pepper and savory grilled meat with a backdrop of luscious blackberry compote. On entry this is a powerful wine as the meaty spice notes carry through along with freshly picked blackberry. This becomes more and more elegant as it transitions onto the medium-length finish. This is an exciting wine and will pair well with any preparation of beef - be it a juicy steak or a backyard burger. The drinking window is well open already and will continue to provide enjoyment through 2020. Chris Greene.
