2019 Crozes-Hermitage, Domaine des Grands Chemins, Delas Frères

Crozes-Hermitage is the sweet spot of the Delas offering. This is their no-nonsense, great value, fruit-driven Syrah with notes of anise and red berries. Sadly in 2019 some of the parcels were badly hit by the June hailstorm, so volumes are severely reduced. But thanks to the fragmented layout of the holdings, some were left unscathed, and quality remains as high as ever.

2019 Crozes-Hermitage, Domaine des Grands Chemins, 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.
