2018 Hermitage Blanc Domaine des Tourettes, Delas Frères

Around 10% Roussanne in the blend here, with the rest Marsanne. This comes from three plots: L’Ermite, La Tourette and Le Sabot. Apples and spice, this is excellent but will need plenty of time to come together.

With an impressive female winemaker, Claire Darnaud, at the helm since 2010 (though with experience there dating back to 1996), and considerable investment in the cellar to move to the historic town centre, the wines here are some of the more refined in the region. Careful never to use more than 40% new oak, Claire is a master of her craft.
