Tasting Notes:

A fine effort from this Northern Rhône-based négociant, the 2017 Gigondas Les Reinages is a tank-aged 80-20 blend of Grenache and Syrah. Lovely raspberry fruit picks up a tinge of something herbal on the nose, while the full-bodied palate is supple, silky and loaded with red fruit. Pure and elegant, it should drink well for at least 5-6 years.

Tasting Notes:

This estate is more known for their Northern Rhône releases, yet they also fashion a bevy of terrific wines from the Southern Rhône as well. Their 2017 Gigondas Les Reinages checks in as 80% Grenache and 20% Syrah that was destemmed and spent a year in tank before bottling. This medium-bodied, rounded, supple, yet beautifully polished 2017 has the classic Provençal style of the vintage front and center in its sweet cherry and mulberry fruits, flowers, rose petal, and lavender aromas and flavors. It’s exotic, complex, and has loads of character.

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.
