Delas Cotes du Rhone 'st-espirit' 2019


We have been waiting for the 2019 to arrive and now it has.

Wine Spectator 'Best Buy' recommended.

"Fresh and inviting, with more fruit and depth than many of it's peers. Offers a plum and cherry puree profile, laced with floral and red tea accents on the finish.
Drink now through 2022." 90/100 James Molesworth.

The cuvée “Saint-Esprit” comes from a small valley which nestles in the northern part of the Ardèche. The vineyards are planted on granite, south-facing slopes near the villages of Saint-Julien and-Saint-Alban. Syrah (majority) and Grenache (approximately 10%).

Unusual for a Syrah majority Cotes Du Rhone, but it makes sense when you try it.  A classy, classy buy here for the dollars.
