A lively, peppery, mineral-driven style, with a strong iron note run-ning through the core of crushed plum and blackberry. Features a lingering white pepper edge on the slightly dusty finish. Best from 2013 through 2020.-J.M. Wine Spectator. A Syrah wine from Rhone in France. 2009 Delas Freres Crozes Hermitage le Clos 750ml

Delas's two luxury cuvees are both candidates for perfection. As good as the single vineyard Cote Roties of Guigal, the 2009 Cote Rotie La Landonne, from a vintage that is slightly less successful in Cote Rotie than in the other Northern Rhone appell...

While it is a beauty, it is eclipsed by the 2009 Crozes-Hermitage Le Clos, which is a limited production offering that is only produced in top vintages. Aged 100% in small French oak, it exhibits a striking minerality as well as copious notes of cass... Robert Parkers Wine Advocate.

Dark purple. Aromas of cherry compote and cassis are brightened by a zesty mineral quality. Rich but lithe offering gently sweet black raspberry and cherry flavors and a biting note of cracked pepper. Shows a touch of smokiness on the seamless nicely persistent finish. Stephen Tanzers IWC.

WA 90 Pts - According to Robert Parker - Delas Freres has produced two other outstanding sleepers of the vintage, and both wines dramatically over-deliver for their appellations. The brilliant 2009 Cotes du Rhone St.-Esprit is the best Cotes du Rhone I have ever tasted from Delas. Seventy percent Syrah, twenty percent Grenache and the rest Carignan and Mourvedre, this wine comes primarily form the Cotes du Rhone village of Cairanne. The wine has great fruit and a sweet raspberry and black cherry nose with some herbs, licorice, and pepper. Aged all in tank, the wine is medium to full-bodied and possesses sweet tannin as well as a long finish.

There is no problem understanding the 2009 Crozes-Hermitage Le Clos. Aged completely in small French oak barrels, it boasts a striking minerality, a wonderfully dense ruby/purple color and sweet notes of creme de cassis, black raspberries, licorice, ...

Winemaker's Notes:

"Ratcheting up the level of concentration, power, extract, tannin and intensity, the 2009 St.-Joseph Francois de Tournon exhibits licorice, cassis, graphite and earth in its full-bodied, rich, well-balanced personality. It should drink well for 10-15 years. Under the inspired leadership of winemaker/administrator Jacques Grange, who has carte blanche authority from the proprietors, the Louis Roederer/Deutz Champagne firm, Delas has been on a fabulous qualitative roll for over a decade. They have enjoyed some great successes, so it is hard to say 2009 may be the magnum opus of Jacques Grange, but it certainly looks fabulous...91-93" Robert Parker, the Wine Advocate 2/11
