It has become quite commonplace to remind everyone that the best wines are more the result of work in the vineyards than of the winemaker's talents, however impressive these may be. And those who work in the winery and cellars have humbly gone along with that. But 2008 has underscored the necessity for true balance and complementarity between vineyard and cellar work. The growing season was not an easy one this year. Exceptionally high rainfall (650 mm up to the end of August) made for a lot of work in the vineyards, and imposed some limits on what we could expect. Fungal diseases that we thought were now limited to less favourable climates than the northern Rhône valley returned to our hillsides, locally causing considerable losses in crop. This also slowed down the maturation process, and, in some parts of the DELAS FRERES estate, veraison of grapes only completed around August 20th. This was the case, for example, in plots like Combe Clos, part of Domaine des Grands Chemins, the firm' Read more »

  • Which brings up the old line about Cali Syrah, "What's the difference ... ... maybe two (a Perrin or Delas Freres CdR, Clos L'Oratoire CdP for the fancy pants out there), and a few generic Bourgognes, usually Jadot.  But you can get fifty or a hundred kinds of Cabernet, and quite a bit is decent, along with more Chardonnay and a fair bit of S...

  • Delas Cotes du Ventoux 2012


    Tight on the nose and not terribly impressive but what is there shows a blackberry jam edge and cinnamon spice notes and vanilla/powdered sugar accents. Bright, attractively lean and energetic in the mouth. This is not a rich wine, though it does deliver lovely, tense sour cherry and raspberry fruit on the palate. theres lively acidity here and...

  • Delas les Launes Crozes Hermitage Rouge 2009


    This Delas Crozes Hermitage is lightish with a leathery prune, rye flour and cranberry (acidic fruit) nose. The body is medium with modest structure - though the balance is good and the fresh acidity is palate-cleansing. A good wine for lighter meats or on the patio. Drink now through 2015. 87 points.

  • Côte du Ventoux Delas 2008


    The wine is a lovely deep ruby to purple color, and the nose is thick with ripe fruit, blackberry and plum, and a nice bit of spice that balances the fruit very well. There is also a good bit of earthiness too, somewhat reminiscent of the forest after a spring shower that reminds me of the flavors of black truffles. The wine is quite fruit for... Read More
