94 points “One of the gems in the vintage is the 2013 Hermitage Domaine des Tourettes.” – Wine Advocate

18 points “Very glossy layered and magnificent… it’s a pretty magnificent wine.” – Jancis Robinson

Another phenomenal wine from Delas as the critics’ assessments show. The Domaine des Tourettes Hermitage 2013 is pure Syrah from three different terroirs – L’Ermite Le Sabot and Les Bessards – aged for 18 months. Open it a couple of hours before you want to drink it to let it breathe and maybe consider grabbing two because as Wine Advocate warns it will “have three decades of longevity”. Full-bodied and deeply intense it’s packed with blackberries blueberries black pepper black olive smoke and something that can only be compared to chasing a wild boar through the undergrowth on a hot day while dressed head-to-toe in leather. Pair this magical and otherworldly wine with cumin-spiced lamb mapo tofu tapenade Chinese barbeque flavours and spicy stews.

Established by Charles Audibert and Philippe Delas in 1835 Delas Frères remained a family business for over 140 years and is revered for the elegance of its wines. Already incredibly well respected this Rhône powerhouse based in Tournon has now passed into the ownership of the Rouzauds – one of the wine world’s most powerful and discerning families who also look after Champagne Louis Roederer Château Pichon-Longueville Comtesse de Lalande Domaines Ott Ramos Pinto and Champagne Deutz. So you are in very safe hand especially considering that head winemaker Jacques Grange worked for Michel Chapoutier and Jean-Luc Colombo before joining Delas Frères. Under his watchful eye the quality has gone through the roof and the wines have gained an almost Burgundy-esque finesse.
