2009 Delas Freres - Hermitage Les Bessards
Delas Freres Description
A brilliant, deep red hue with lots of depth. The nose show great class, with soft aromas of blackberries, violets, and black olives on a light smoky touch. Hermitage "Les Bessards" shows plenty of concentration in its fruit. This is a wine with a particularly dense tannic structure, and extremely good balance. This wine pairs well with red meat, game cooked rare or medium, marinated meat and spicy stews. It is recommended you open the bottle one to three hours before drinking.
Wine Advocate: 100 Points
"The most prodigious wine I have yet tasted from the Delas portfolio is the brilliant 2009 Hermitage Les Bessards. Its inky/purple color is followed by abundant notes of acacia flowers, blackberries, black currants, new saddle leather, roasted meats and graphite, amazing concentration, a skyscraper-like texture, supple but significant tannin and low acidity. The result is a perfect example of Syrah from this great vineyard site in Hermitage. It will offer immense pleasure for 40+ years." —Robert Parker
