Delas Frères Syrah St. Joseph Cuvée Francois de Tournon 2004
"Pure and defined, with a range of aromas and flavors that's impressive for the vintage--coffee, olive, white pepper, tobacco, blackberry and currant fruit. The long finish shows nice flesh and minerality and really blossoms with air. A wine whose breed shines through the vintage. Drink now through 2012...93." WS 5/07
Not always a fan of blends, but this is good. Thin, good for light fare. Strong cherrry, a bit of spice.
This blend (80% Grenache, 20% Syrah) has berry on the nose, particularly cherry. An easy, enjoyable wine to drink. Clean and crisp with some white pepper.
External Reviews for Delas Frères Syrah St. Joseph Cuvée Francois de Tournon
This unique cuvee illustrates the enormous potential of this incomparable vineyard. The wine has a deep red color. The nose is aromatic with scents of berries, currants and violets. Les Bessards is rich in the mouth with bold, yet silky tannins and concentrated black cherry/plum fruit. It's an exceptional wine with a firm structure that will benefit from long cellaring.
