Thanks to 175 years of experience in Hermitage, Delas is a serious, demanding wine house, which protects the taste of the terroir in each of its Côtes-du-Rhône appellations. It all began in Tournon-sur-Rhône in 1835, when Charles Audibert and Philippe Delas acquired a wine merchant which they named Audibert et Delas before a generation later when it became DELAS Frères.
The Maison’s directors have always had the same obsession; to achieve the continuous production of high-quality wines. In 1996, the spirit and soul that contributed to its reputation for high quality wines was restored. Today, a highly-motivated team are proud to play a part in the aim to perpetuate and enhance the expression of the Terroir.
This cuvée is a blend of wines produced on the commune of Apt, in the heart of the Côtes-du-Ventoux appellation. Grenache (80%) and Syrah (20%). Its colour is a deep ruby red, showing garnet reflections while young. With its predominately berry-fruit bouquet, this wine shows the full aromatic power of these two fine grape varieties whilst retaining the freshness imparted by well-controlled wine making.
