Winemaker Notes

A brilliant, deep red hue with lots of depth. The nose shows great class, with soft aromas of blackberries, violets, and black olives with a touch of light smok. Hermitage "Les Bessards" shows plenty of concentration in its fruit. This is a wine with a particularly dense tannic structure, and extremely good balance.

Critical Acclaim

RP 93
The Wine Advocate

The 2007 Hermitage Les Bessards is more fruit-forward, offering notes of concentrated black cherry and cassis fruit intermixed with licorice, truffle, earth, and pain grille characteristics. Deep, rich, softer, and more fruit-forward in a seductive, opulent style, this beauty should have 20-25 years of longevity.
Range: 91-92

WS 93
Wine Spectator

A dark, smoldering style, exhibiting cocoa powder and braised fig notes up front, followed by additional espresso, mulled currant, melted licorice and graphite notes that push through on the muscular finish. Latent minerality keeps it all together. Drink now through 2018. 830 cases made.

WE 91
Wine Enthusiast

Leathery and woody is the first impression you'll get, but the palate excels with grippy warmth, a firm tannic structure and dark, plummy flavors that bring black olive, sous bois and sauvage flavors that are true to Rhône Syrah. Tasted by a three-person panel, the wine was unanimously well liked, with one reviewer finding it more hard and "clacky" than the others.

Delas
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.
