We are delighted to announce that Jeb Dunnuck, an independent wine critic based in the USA, has scored the Delas range highly across the board in a recent tasting of the 2016s and 2015s.
Indeed, Jeb was so impressed with the Hermitage Les Bessards Rouge 2015 that he scored it an unbeatable 100 Points! He described the wine as:
“Aged 18 months in 30% new barrels, its purple/plum color is followed by a huge nose of black currents, graphite, toasted spice, crushed rocks and saddle leather. Powerful, massively concentrated and tannic, it has a broad, expansive, heavenly texture, a thick mid-palate (you could almost use a fork for this beauty), and a great finish. Despite the richness level, it stays balanced and graceful on the palate, and is never over the top or heavy. It’s a perfect Hermitage”.
Ferthemore, the Cote Rotie La Landonne, Hermitage Domaines des Tourettes, Hermitage Les Bessards Rouge, Condrieu Clos Boucher, Saint Joseph Saint Epine Rouge, Saint Joseph Francois de Tournon and Cote Rotie Seigneur de Maugiron 2015 all scored over 95 Points!
