Very deep dark crimson red colour with crimson red hue. The nose displays perfumed scents of dark raspberry and dark cherry followed by a hint of incense and spice. Medium weight the palate delivers quite full and rich flavours of dark raspberry, liquorice and dark cherry with some meaty overtones and a spicy back palate. Fine grained, slightly dryish tannins. Good depth with long aftertaste of spicy dark raspberry and dried meat.
Cellar 4-5 years (2015-2016).
An up-and-coming wine from Delas is their 2009 Chateauneuf du Pape Haute Pierre. Aged in barriques, it is a blend of 60% Syrah and 40% Grenache, which is a little unusual for a Chateauneuf du Pape blend. However, the percentage of Syrah was jacked up to give the wine more texture and richness in a year where the Grenache could occasionally be troublesome. Deep ruby/purple, with oodles of cassis and blackberry as well as some lavender and other floral notes, the wine is full-bodied, opulent, and best drunk over the next 7-8 years.
