Delas Freres Hermitage les Bessards 2011, 1.5L (WA96-100) from The BPW - Merchants of rare and fine wines.

Delas Freres Hermitage les Bessards

1.5L

Vintage: 2011
Region: France--Rhone--Hermitage
Appellation: Hermitage

WA96-100
Rated 96-100 points by Robert Parker`s Wine Advocate: `Between 900 and 1,000 cases are normally made of the luxury cuvee, the Hermitage Les Bessards. An astonishing wine for the vintage, the 2011 is a candidate for the wine of the year in the entire Rhone Valley. Its black/purple color is accompanied by copious aromas of pen ink, licorice, blackberries, cassis and crushed rocks, huge body, sweet tannin, and extravagant, nearly over-the-top richness and density that nearly defy the vintage character. This is a remarkable achievement from an outstanding terroir and one of France`s finest winemaking teams. Forget it for 3-4 years and drink it over the following 2-3 decades.` -- Reviewed by Robert ParkerAdditional Notes from Robert Parker`s Wine Advocate: `Over the last 10-15 years, Delas Freres, which had muddled along with no great distinction for many years, has hit full stride under the ownership of the Louis Roederer-Deutz Champagne firm and the management of Jacques Grange, who continues to push the envelope of quality for both the Northern and Southern Rhone selections. The top single vineyard wines are world class in every sense, often flirting with perfection. Moreover, readers should realize this is also an impressive source for value. Delas`s top St.-Joseph cuvee comes from the hillside vineyards overlooking the small commune of St.-Jean de Muzols. The Delas firm owns 25 acres in Hermitage from which they make a basic cuvee, called Domaine des Tourettes, and, in the greatest vintages, a luxury cuvee, Les Bessards, which comes entirely from the great lieu-dit of the same name. Delas has long had a reputation for making outstanding Condrieu, of which he makes two cuvees.`
