2016 Cornas Chante Perdrix, Delas Frères

This is bright and floral, with ripe dark fruits that have both wildness and elegance. It’s blended from the first and last plots to be harvested in the region, so there’s real complexity here. It’s spicy, pure and mineral with gorgeous depth, impressive length and fine tannins.

2016 Cornas Chante Perdrix, 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.
