The ancient vineyards of Saint-Joseph, planted almost exclusively with Syrah, cover more than 600 acres on the right bank of the Rhone river. The grapes are planted in terraces on the rocky granite hillsides, where Delas selects only the best grapes for the Francois de Tournon. The Francois de Tournon is a blend of grapes from the terroirs of Vion, Saint-Jean de Muzols, Mauves and Tournon.
The color is a deep, dark ruby red with garnet wick gourmet reflection. The nose is clearly marked by delicate aromas of cassis and spices. On the palate, "François de Tournon" shows a tender, voluptuous texture that masks a good tannic structure, fine and silky. It will age well.
"Delas’ St.-Joseph Francois de Tournon is usually a brilliant offering, and the 2006 is no exception. A more textured, bigger, richer effort, it possesses a dense purple color as well as notes of crushed stones, black pepper, blackberries, and currants, and stunning concentration, texture, and length. This superb wine should drink well for 10-15 years.
