2012 Delas Frères "Domaine de Tourettes" Hermitage

SKU #1217826 95 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate

Outer quote mark Just a small step back from the Les Bessards, the 2012 Hermitage Domaine des Tourettes is a stunning effort that exhibits blockbuster notes of toasted spice, leather, peppery herbs and sweet black and blue fruit. Seeing 16 months in 60% new French oak, it's a powerful, concentrated and full-bodied effort that has lots of tannin, but more than enough fruit to handle it. Like the Les Bessards, shorter-term cellaring is advised here and it will have over two decades of longevity. (JD) Inner quote mark (12/2014)

92 points Vinous

Outer quote mark Deep ruby. Expansive, highly perfumed bouquet evokes red and dark berry preserves, incense and olive paste, with a minerally element coming up slowly. Sweet and penetrating in the mouth, offering black raspberry and floral pastille flavors that spread out and gain sweetness on the back half. The floral quality drives a long, sappy, seamless that finish that's firmed by dusty, fine-grained tannins. (JR) Inner quote mark (2/2015)

92 points Wine Spectator

Outer quote mark Well-packed, with raspberry and blackberry pâte de fruit notes, studded with anise and briar details. Dense yet racy. Mouthwatering acidity drives the finish, which reveals ample grip in reserve. (JM) Inner quote mark (4/2015)

Jancis Robinson

Outer quote mark Bottled in June 2014. Intense, heavy but not overbearing. In fact, the palate is relatively light, all things considered. Youthful and compact. (RH) 17/20 Inner quote mark (4/2019)

The Domaine de Tourettes is fleshy and rich. Full bodied with loads of dark berry and brambly fruit. The underlying character of a Hermitage comes through but right now fruit is on the menu. Give it a couple of hours in the decanter or cellar for 5-10 years to release all the depth this wine possesses.
