2011 Crozes-Hermitage Le Clos, Delas Frères

“The top cuvee, the Crozes-Hermitage Le Clos, is more limited in availability. Aged completely in small French oak, the 2011 Crozes-Hermitage Le Clos possesses plenty of black fruit notes intermixed with hints of acacia flowers, licorice, roasted meats and mountain laurel. Full and front-end loaded with soft tannins, this noteworthy 2011 should drink beautifully for a decade or more.”

90-92 points, Robert Parker, The Wine Advocate

2011 Crozes-Hermitage Le Clos, Delas Frères
Maison Delas Frères

One of most prolific producers of the northern Rhône, Delas Frères was formed in 1835 and has steadily acquired desirable plots in nearly every appellation in that part of the valley. Initially family-owned, the maison merged with the champagne house Deutz in the mid-70s, an entity then purchased by Louis Roederer in 1993. They’ve now been organic since 2013, though not accredited, and have really hit their stride.
