2016 Les Launes, Dellas, Rhône Valley, France, Crozes-Hermitage AOC
Since 1996, the celebrated Maison Delas Frères whose roots go back to 1835, has restored the soul and the spirit that contributed to its reputation for high quality wines.
A motivated team proudly participates in the revival of the quality of this venerable Rhône Valley wine company. A specially designed vat-house for the vinification of red wines, as well as a full restructuring of the ageing cellars, are among the new quality measures at Delas, all aimed at perpetuating and enhancing the expression of the Terroir.
Delas Frères grows 30 hectares of vines spread over 10 hectares in the Hermitage AOC, 2 hectares in Saint-Joseph AOC and 18 hectares on Crozes-Hermitage. In addition to the exploitation provided by the team of Delas, the perfect symbiosis with like-minded owner-wine growers ensure that the company is able to source grapes grown on individual parcels, which reflect their own unique terroir.
