Crozes-Hermitage Les Launes, Rhone


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

A fresh, medium-bodied Crozes, with aromas of cassis, plums and violets, alongside the telltale black pepper. The palate offers a supple mouthfeel and a fine mineral finish.
