    An essential Hermitage wine from an exceptional vintage

    Product of the exceptional 2015 vintage from the Hermitage appellation, the Domaine des Tourettes' 2015 of Maison Delas Frères is one of the great wines of the Northern Rhône Valley.

    A must-have vintage, the 2015 Delas Domaine des Tourettes Hermitage results from the blending of three different terroirs: the l’Ermite, le Sabot et les Tourettes, which lend the region's favourite grape variety, Syrah, a very special expression. The typical granitic soils of the area are expressed through a unique minerality.

    In the glass, the Delas Hermitage Domaine des Tourettes 2015 presents a dense, dark red color. On the nose, the aromatic profile evolves through a concentration of black fruit and the spicy notes reminiscent of the white pepper typical of Syrah. With aeration, animal and leather notes appear as well. On the palate, the attack reveals a dense texture upon a silky-smooth tannic frame with tight grains. A great wine, ready to be appreciated now or to be kept until 2030. It is advisable to decant this Hermitage wine for 1 to 3 hours before tasting to give it time to show off all its aromas.

    Wine Advocate-Parker :
    A blend of Syrah grapes from several lieux-dits, including Les Bessards, the 2015 Hermitage Domaine des Tourettes is aged in new and second use barrels. It's a dark, concentrated wine, meaty, rich and tannic but with a bright beam of cassis fruit that lifts it and gives it great definition and shape on the palate. Give this medium to full-bodied wine at least 5 years in the cellar and drink it over the next 15.
