The White Hermitage Domaine des Tourettes 2015 from Delas is made from a blend of grapes from three different terroirs: those of l’Ermit, Le Sabot and la Tourette. This cuvee, produced only in very limited quantities, expresses the typical character of Marsanne (90%) and Roussanne (10%), grape varieties that flourish on these granite soils, which are covered with mica-schist and gneiss, mixed with alluvial pebbles.
In the glass, the Delas Domaine des Tourettes Hermitage 2015 shows off a pale yellow colour with green highlights, already demonstrating good density. The olfactory palette reveals an intense aromatic expression, with the richness of candied citrus flavours and delicate floral notes, underlined by the subtle vanilla notes and undergrowth. On the palate, the concentrated and powerful aromas are also perfectly expressed. A beautiful freshness presents itself also on the palate, following through to a finish that recalls the minerality of the terroir. A noble wine from Hermitage promising a good potential for guard.
