2018 Delas Frères Crozes-Hermitage Les Launes

Single Bottle - Standard - 750ml

HK$260.00

Tasting Notes:

A blend of 80% Marsanne and 20% Roussanne, the 2018 Crozes Hermitage les Launes Blanc features notes of creamed corn on the nose, not one of my favorite characters in wine. Otherwise, it's on the neutral side, medium to full-bodied, plump and silky. Drink it young.

Tasting Notes:

Vinified with purchased grapes and in stainless steel with a fresh, red-fruit core and a supple, juicy and attractive palate. Drink now.

Tasting Notes:

Black raspberries, new leather, sappy herbs, and Christmas spice notes all emerge from the medium-bodied 2018 Crozes-Hermitage Les Launes, which has a seamless, elegant texture, and polished tannins. It's a charming, balanced, impeccably put together Crozes Hermitage that can be drunk today or cellared for 8-10 years. This cuvée is always destemmed and brought up in a mix of tank and a small part in barrel.

description Producer information Professional reviews

Delas Freres is a winery of tradition and renewal. Founded 160 years ago in the heart of the northern Côtes du Rhône, the winery enjoyed the dynamism of its original founders and their heirs and more recently, the renewed energy of the Lallier-Deutz family, owners of champagne house, Champagne Deutz. Delas Freres and Champagne Deutz were acquired by the Champagne House of Louis Roederer in 1993. Andre Lallier retired from daily winery duties in 1996, and Fabrice Rosset, a 20-year executive with Roederer, has taken the helm at both Delas and Deutz. Today, the Delas wines are crafted by a panel of experts headed by winemaker Jacques Grange. Together, the team makes wines that have been heralded for their intensity of flavor and excellent value.
