Once one of the northern Rhône’s under-performers, Delas is now a serious player among the top Rhône négociants. While the extensive spread of wines from the northern appellations is particularly impressive, the south of the regions is also well represented. The range is comprehensive and even the humbler wines are now sound and well-crafted. Far better fruit quality and well-handled new oak in the better wines are just two of the keys here to the transformation in fortune and quality. Star turns are the top cuvées, which are densely textured and explosively rich and concentrated. The outstanding Hermitage Les Bessards and Côte-Rôtie La Landonne are remarkably ageworthy propositions now, demanding at least 6–7 years’ cellaring. The other top reds and white Hermitage also deserve cellaring. (DM)
