Tasting Notes

The colour is deep, with a garnet hue deepened by purple tinges. To the nose this Crozes-Hermitage "Domaine des Grands Chemins" shows seductive whiffs of crushed black fruit (dark cherries, blackberries and blackcurrants) which evolve in the glass to reveal slightly smoky and liquorice notes, all these being quite typical from the "Chassis" area. In retro-olfaction, and on a mineral black-ground, menthol and eucalyptus express their hints. In the mouth, the seriousness of the wine combines with its delicacy: the first impact is fresh and lively. The texture is tannic but intense, pulpy, almost silky. This truly balanced wine expresses a nice complexity generous and true to the genuine "terroir" of the "Domaine des Grands Chemins".

About the Winery

Since 1996, the venerable Maison Delas Frères whose roots go back to 1835, has found the soul and the brilliance that contributed to its fame.
Under the leadership of the new management, many investments were made at the Saint-Jean-de-Muzols production site near Tournon-sur-Rhône.
A motivated team proudly participates in the qualitative renewal of this Grande Maison in the Rhône Valley: a vat room specially designed for the vinification of red wines, the complete restructuring of the breeding cellar are among the key elements of the quality approach of the House. Delas, summed up in one sentence: to perpetuate and sublimate the expression of the Earth.
