About Our Ratings

Hermitage 2011 Les Bessards, Delas Freres
A top negociant with significant vineyard holdings, Delas, is owned by the Louis Roederer/Deutz Champagne firm. Since they acquired Delas over a decade ago, this firm has been under the management of Burgundian Jacques Grange who has done an outstanding job producing a sensational array of wines. The Domaine owns 20 acres on the famous hill that overlooks the town of Tain. This is where the single, Les Bessards vineyard is located. Maceration was extened to 25 days and the wine was aged 16 months in oak barrels. Robert Parker found this to be a nearly perfect wine scoring it 99 points. He said "Even better and one of the top two to three wines in the vintage, the 2011 Hermitage Les Bessards (100% Syrah that spent 16 months in 70% new French oak) possesses an inky purple color to go with a fabulously rich, pure bouquet of smoked earth, ground pepper, underbrush and licorice that’s supported by awesome black raspberry and cassis-styled fruit. Full-bodied, seamless and layered, with masses of sweet tannin and notable structure, this beauty bucks the vintage stereotype and will need short-term cellaring to become approachable. It will have 2-3 decades of longevity." Extremely Limited!!
