Châteauneuf-du-Pape Haute Pierre Delas. France

Quantity:

Châteauneuf-du-Pape Haute Pierre Delas. Many Rhône producers have enjoyed a renaissance in the last decade, and none more so than Delas. The company has history (back to 1836) and land (twelve prime hectares, including La Landonne and Les Bessards). Since 1997, in the form of Jacques Grange, it has also had a winemaker capable of realising all that potential. Under his influence a more modern ‘boutique’ approach has been taken, and the wines now combine clarity of flavour with hedonistic appeal – surely the ultimate goal for a Rhône producer

TASTING NOTES

This offers a heady blend of power, fruit and spice. Cherry, raspberry and baked plum mingle with fresh pepper and the herbs of the garrigue. Deft despite its weight, the palate finishes dry and refreshing.
