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.

“At this early stage, the 2018 Hermitage Les Bessards is overly marked by wood, with notes of charred oak and mocha dominating the fruit. It's full-bodied, intense and velvety, with black olive nuances coming through on the finish. As the oak isn't normally obtrusive in this cuvée, I suspect my rating may turn out to be conservative. Tasted blind.
