Domaine Delas was founded over 160 years ago and is today owned by the great champagne house Louis Roederer. The Domaine cultivates vineyards on the steep granite slopes of the northern Rhône, in some of the region's most prestigious appellations. Crafted by winemaker Jacques Grange (who is originally from Burgundy) to epitomise finesse and elegance, recent vintages from the vineyards of Hermitage, Crozes-Hermitage, Chateauneuf-du-Pape, Côte Rôtie, Condrieu, Côtes-du-Rhône and Côtes-du-Ventoux have won renewed praise for their intensity of flavour and excellent value.

“Marked by some herbal and raspberry notes on the nose, the 2018 Cote Rotie La Landonne also boasts plenty of blueberries. In fact, it's surprisingly fruit-driven for this vineyard, and I didn't recognize it blind. It's medium to full-bodied, with ample concentration and texture, and has a long, concentrated finish. I wouldn't be surprised to see it improve over its next year of élevage.”
