Domaine des Grands Chemins 2012 - Maison Delas, Crozes-Hermitage

The opinion of the sommelier

This nice wine is especially typical of the Crozes-Hermitage renowned appellation. It displays aromas of red berries enhanced by refined spicy flavours. I hope you will appreciate as much as I did the length of this wine that remains long on the palate after swallowing. The perfect wine for French syrah lovers! It will perfectly pair with a roasted rabbit with mushrooms. 

 

Terroir

Crozes-Hermitage’s vines are planted on hills particularly exposed to the strong winds blowing almost all the time through the north of Rhône Valley. In addition to protecting the grapes from rot and diseases, this wind gives the vines a lot of freshness which allow winemakers to elaborate very complex and refined wines.

lecepage Grape variety

Syrah is the only black grape variety in the northern Rhône Valley and is mainly known for its aromatic complexity. It gives wines powerful spices and flowers aromas (mainly pepper and violet). Wines elaborated with syrah are usually fit to age a few years provided the grapes grew up on a good terroir and give very tasty aromas with time.

lemillesime Vintage

Crozes-Hermitage appellation takes advantage of an average of 2700 hours of sunshine a year and a low level of rainfall. In 2012, despite a first semester characterized by coldness and the attack of various diseases, the sunny and warm summer brought grapes to perfect ripeness. The winemakers only had to select the best grape clusters so has to produce amazing wines. 

lerecoltant A winemaker, a family

Delas winery is renowned on one hand for having the support of the best grape growers in the Rhône Valley and on the other hand for having developed exceptional winemaking skills in its 180 years of existence. To strengthen its presence in Crozes-Hermitage, Delas winery acquired in 2006 Domaine des Grands Chemins to benefit from it’s the perfect exposure of the vines.
