jebdunnuck.com, March 2024

Moving to the three Hermitage releases, the 2020 Hermitage Domaine Des Tourettes offers a deep, saturated purple hue as well as a powerful bouquet of scorched earth, creosote, peppered meat, liquid violets, and both black...

Vinous, December 2022

(94-95 points) Inky ruby. Smoke- and mineral-accented black and blue fruits, violet, licorice and an olive nuance on the deeply perfumed nose. Stains the palate with intense cherry, blueberry and fruitcake flavors that...

Decanter, October 2021

The oak spice is quite forthright on the nose, then you sink down into the plush, juicy fruit. Like sitting into a well-stuffed leather armchair, it's comfortable on the palate, but there's some pleasing resistance. Juicy...

jamessuckling.com, May 2023

Dense black fruit aromas with hints of tar and leather. A bold and powerful wine with a serious tannin structure that's wrapped in ripe fruit. Long smoky and stony finish that tells you this has an excellent future ahead...

Robert Parker's Wine Advocate, January 2022

(90-92 points) The cherry and berry-scented 2020 Hermitage Domaine des Tourettes—tasted from barrel—is a smooth, silky-textured, medium to full-bodied effort that should be approachable relatively young, yet it has the...

Wine Spectator,

Ripe, fresh and sleek, with a beam of dark cherry and red currant fruit driving through, laced gently with singed apple wood, savory and violet notes along the way. The fruit keeps a steady presence through the focused...

Wine & Spirits, February 2023

Blended from l’Ermite, le Sabot and les Bessards, this is still primary, its formidable concentration making it a challenge to pick out the acidity, though there's plenty of it nestled amidst that richness. On the second...

Founded in 1835 by Charles Audibert and Phillipe Delas, the celebrated Delas Freres winery grows 30 hectares of vines comprising 10 hectares in Hermitage (including the Domaines des Tourettes estate), 2 hectares in Saint-Joseph, and 18 hectares in Crozes-Hermitage.

In addition to the grapes produced by Delas' own wine growing team, Delas' close relationships with like-minded owner-winegrowers ensure that the company is able to source grapes grown on individual parcels, which reflect their own unique terroir.

Exclusively a family-owned operation for over a century, Delas Freres joined forces with Champagne Deutz in 1977. In 1993, Deutz and Delas Freres were approached by the Rouzaud family, majority shareholder in the Roederer Group. They joined the Roederer Group under whose umbrella Delas' philosophy continues to flourish.

This wine is a blend from 3 different Hermitage terroirs: L'Ermite, le Sabot, and the famed plot, les Bessards. Made from 100% Syrah, grapes for Domaine des Tourettes are picked by hand and aged in French oak barrels.

The color shows brilliant, deep red hues. The nose is powerful and complex, expressing blackberries, spices and leather. On the palate, Domaine des Tourettes is firm but silky, with a tightly-knit tannic structure that is the hallmark of wines that have a great future.
