2015 Delas Freres "Signeurs de Maugiron" Côte-Rôtie (Pre-Arrival)

SKU #1336327 95 points Jeb Dunnuck

 The 2015 Côte Rôtie Seigneur De Maugiron is a little gem of a wine, and I suspect the finest vintage I’ve tasted for the cuvée. Rounded, full-bodied, voluptuous, and impeccably balanced, it offers lots of spice, cured meats and black fruits, sweet tannin, and a great mid-palate. It has considerable elegance and purity, and is more sexy and approachable than the more structured Côte Rôtie La Landonne. It should keep for 10-12 years easily. If you want to check out the style of this estate, this is a great place to start.  (1/2018)

93 points James Suckling

 Dark polished woody aromas with spiced, peppery dark plum and black cherry fruits, and stony, too. The palate has a smooth wave of ripe, plush plum, blakcberry and mulberry fruits. Tannins are velvety and ripe.  (9/2017)

93 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate

 The 2015 Cote Rotie Seigneur de Maugiron is a blend of several parcels in the Côte Brune and the Côte Blonde, aged in new and second use barrels. It's less aromatic than many of its brethren at this point, but it does offer attractive red berry aromas bolstered by red and black fruit on the palate with hints of cracked pepper and smoke. It's a serious effort, with dusty tannins that suggest it will age gracefully for a decade or two. (JC)  (12/2017)

91-93 points Vinous

 Saturated ruby. High-pitched cherry, cassis and licorice pastille scents pick up spice and smoky mineral flourishes with air. Sappy, densely packed red and blue fruit preserve and violet pastille flavors show excellent clarity and a spine of juicy acidity. Distinctly lively given its lush character and power. Dusty, fine-grained tannins sneak in late, adding shape to the long, focused, floral-driven finish. (JR)  (4/2017)

92 points Wine & Spirits

 A selection from plots in the côtes Brune and Blonde, this is impressively fresh and juicy for all its smoky oak and dark-berry concentration. It’s as if the tannins include air in their weave, allowing details of bacon fat and black olives, porcini and baking spice to show through.  (2/2018)

91 points Decanter

 The dense inky hue reflects the intensity of the black cherry and bramble fruit. It is a flashy style with assertive oak. The palate is a touch volatile, but the firm tannins and long finish are in balance.Drinking Window 2020 - 2027. (MW)  (10/2017)

Rhone Blends



- 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.


- 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.
