Winemaker's Notes:

Dark purple in color. Strong and refined nose marked by aromas of red currants and licorice, with undertones of oak. It has a firm tannic structure, is well balanced and has a smooth texture. The perfect accompaniment to red meats and game, dishes with truffles or earthy mushrooms, and strong cheeses.

Alcohol: 12.5% by volume

My Notes:

About Delas Freres:

Founded over 160 years ago, Delas Frères was acquired by Champagne Deutz in 1977.

Delas Frères cultivates vineyards on the steep granite slopes of the northern Rhône, in some of the region's most prestigious appellations. Additional grapes are supplied through long-term agreements with southern Rhone growers dedicated to providing only top quality grapes.

Crafted by winemaker Jacques Grange to epitomize finesse and elegance, recent Delas Frères vintages from the vineyards of Hermitage, Crozes-Hermitage, Chateauneuf-du-Pape, Côte Rôtie, Condrieu, Côtes-du-Rhône and Côtes-du-Ventoux have won renewed praise for their intensity of flavor and excellent value.
