2009 Delas Freres "Domaine des Grands Chemins" Crozes Hermitage (Pre-Arrival)

SKU #1066321

92 points Robert Parker: "The 2009 Crozes-Hermitage Domaine des Grands Chemins spends time in both barrel and tank. Deeper, richer and more ageworthy than Les Launes, it boasts a dense purple color along with an impressive bouquet of camphor, graphite, spring flowers, tapenade and creme de cassis." (02/11) 88-90 points Stephen Tanzer's International Wine Cellar: "Deep ruby. Fresh red fruit and floral aromas are given depth by suggestions of licorice and black cardamom. Ripe blackberry and bitter cherry flavors show good clarity and shut down slightly with air. The finish repeats the cherry note and lingers with good, chewy tenacity." (Jan/Feb 2011)

Additional Information:

Varietal:

Rhone Blends

Country:

France

- When it comes to wine, France stands alone. No other country can beat it in terms of quality and diversity. And while many of its Region, Bordeaux, Burgundy and Champagne most obviously, produce wine as rare, as sought-after and nearly as expensive as gold, there are just as many obscurities and values to be had from little known appellations throughout the country. To learn everything there is to know about French wine would take a lifetime. To understand and appreciate French wine, one only has to begin tasting them. Click for a list of bestselling items from all of France.
Sub-Region:

Rhone

- Legendary wine-producing region in southeast France. Stereotypically speaking, Rhone wines are high in alcohol, and the majority produced is red. The northern Rhone is best known for outstanding 100% Syrah wines from areas such as Cote Rotie and Hermitage, as well as for fabulous white wines from Condrieu (where Viognier is king). In the southern Rhone, look for spicy, full-bodied wines that are blends of Grenache, Syrah, and other varietals coming from appellations such as Chateauneuf du Pape, Gigondas, or Rasteau. Wines labeled as Cote du Rhone or Cotes du Rhone Village (a cut above generic Cotes du Rhone) are frequently found here in the US because they often represent some of the best values on the market.
