Delas Hermitage blanc - Domaine des Tourettes Delas Hermitage blanc - Domaine des Tourettes 2012
96-100 points Wine Advocate

Varietal
100% Marsanne

Winemaking
After hand-picking at optimal maturity, the grapes travel to the winery in small boxes exclusively set for white grapes. The juice is pressed "à la champe-noise" by separating the free-run wine and the press wine. After pressing, the musts are given cold settling, and fermentation takes place in small oak barrels. After fermentation in barrels, the wine is aged on its lees for between 6 and 8 months, with regular stirring to develop flesh and richness. This will, in turn, give the wine ageing capacity. The wine is then bottled after light fining.

Tasting notes
Pale yellow with green tints. The hue is bright with good density. On the nose the wine shows floral notes, underpinned by candied citrus fruit fragrances. These are complimented by fine oaky notes, such as vanilla and toasted brioche. Its powerful character shows on the palate. Concentrated and opulent, with a perfectly balanced structure, this Hermitage has beautiful freshness and a good mineral character, giving it great aromatic length.

Serving
This wine pairs well with cheese, white meats such as chicken with morilles mushrooms or quail with truffles, as well as fish such as grilled Sea Bass with citrus fruit.

Wine Advocate
"- Moving to the Hermitage whites, the 2012 Hermitage is an off-the-charts blend of 100% Marsanne that spent 12 months in 60% new French oak. Locked and loaded with notions of buttered citrus, toast, flower oil, orange peel and licorice, this full-bodied, fabulously rich and textured white has superb purity of fruit, laser focus and terrific length"

Delas Condrieu - Clos Boucher BlancDelas Condrieu - Clos Boucher (Blanc) 2012
94-100 points Wine Advocate

The Condrieu is one of the world's most elite winegrowing regions. The steep vineyards are difficult to cultivate, and as a result only 50 acres in Condrieu are currently under vine. Located in Verin, near Château Grillet, Clos Boucher is one of Condrieu's oldest vineyards. Planted on five acres of granite slopes with southern exposure, Clos Boucher's 35-year-old vines consistently produce grapes of perfect maturity

Varietal
100% Viognier

Winemaking
Very low yields give the wine a remarkable concentration and fullness. After the pressing of the grapes and settling of the juice, the wine is fermented in new oak barrels. The wine is then matured on fine lees for eight months until the end of the malolactic fermention.

Tasting notes
This is a very concentrated wine that produces intense ripe flavors on the palate. It has a smooth texture enhanced by a hint of oak, which gives it added dimension and distinctive character. Pairs well with Asparagus, steamed fish with butter sauce and lemon chicken.

Wine Advocate
"- Which spent 12 months in 30% new and 60% two- to three-year-old barrels, with the balance in tank, offers classic and gorgeous notes of spiced pears, flowers, citrus and vanilla bean to go with a medium-bodied, fresh and lively feel on the palate.

Delas Côte-Rotie - La LandonneDelas Côte-Rotie - La Landonne 2012
92-94 points Wine Advocate

This very ancient region dates back to the Roman Era and is located on the right bank of the Rhône. The steep, terraced hillsides along the river produce wines that are among the "biggest" reds of France. The Delas Côte-Rôtie is primarily Syrah, to which a
little Viognier is traditionally added. Delas Freres oversees the grapes that are grown in the Côte Brune, Côte Blonde and Côte Tupin-Semons areas. It is said that during the Middle Ages, the Seigneur de Maugiron gave his vineyards as a dowry to his two
daughters, one blond, and the other brunette. Wines from the Côte Blonde tend to be more delicate and lighter in character than the fuller wines of the Côte Brune. Together they make a wine of style and substance.

Varietal
100% Syrah

Winemaking
The grapes for the "La Landonne" cuvée are picked by hand at maximum maturity. Fermentation takes place in traditional open-topped concrete tanks, followed by three days of pre-fermentation cold maceration. Before fermentation, the maceration process continues under controlled temperatures of 82°F to 86°F (28°C to 30°C). Daily cap pressing and pumping over are carried out for 12 days with total vatting time of up to 20 days. After devatting and pressing, malolactic fermentation takes place in oak casks. The wine is aged for 14 to 16 months, 100% in new oak casks. The barrels are topped up regularly.

Tasting notes
The wine's deep color is underscored by plummy hues. A complex nose shows deep, fruity aromas with hints of licorice and roasted coffee. Endowed with a dense and silky tannic structure, this is a full, fleshy wine that provides an ample and generous palate. Its lasting finish speaks of considerable ageing potential

Wine Advocate
"More substantial, with incredible purity of fruit, the 2012 Cote Rotie La Landonne gives up brilliant aromas and flavors of violets, wild flowers, smoked bacon, toast and chocolaty, black-raspberry fruit. Medium to full-bodied, with building, fine tannin, there’s some creaminess to the texture, and its polished, seamless profile will be hard to resist on release. Nevertheless, given its overall balance, depth and concentration"
