    Region: Rhone, France

    Varietal: Rhone Red Blends

    Style: Light & Fruity

    Item no. 109403

    Winemaker's Notes:

    The color is a deep ruby red, showing garnet reflections while young. With its predominately berry-fruit bouquet, this wine shows the full aromatic power of these two fine grape varieties whilst retaining the freshness imparted by well-controlled winemaking. It pairs well with Provençale stews, cold cuts, mixed grills and small game.

    80% Grenache, 20% Syarh

    Critical Acclaim:

    Delas Freres has produced two other outstanding sleepers of the vintage, and both wines dramatically over-deliver for their appellations. The 2009 Cotes du Ventoux (80% Grenache and 20% Syrah) ratchets up the levels of intensity and richness beyond what one can usually find at such an incredibly fair price. Deep ruby/purple, with loads of texture and density, red and black fruits, a salty sea breeze note, and the classic seaweed wrapper found in sushi restaurants (nori) are all present in this generously endowed, corpulent wine. Drink it over the next 4-5 years.

    The Wine Advocate

    Aged exclusively in stainless steel tanks prior to bottling, this blend of 80% Grenache and 20% Syrah is a chunky, medium-bodied red ideal for drinking over the next few years. Subtle plum and black cherry notes pick up hints of leather, earth and spice, with an ample dusting of tannin on the finish.
