The lieu-dit Les Délys is part of the Corcelette climat located downslope from Bellevue and right behind Bouland’s residence and winery—it’s his back garden if you like. Again, Bouland splits his vines into two cuvées: an old-vine cuvée raised in foudre and this younger-vine version raised in concrete. The vines were planted in 1978 and 1980 in the deep granitic sand typical of Les Délys, which brings roundness and Burgundy-like texture to the wines. It’s the most detailed and refined wine so far, and while the structure is a smidge firmer than the Corcelette, there’s so much juicy flavour and succulence that you hardly notice. It closes with a pop of freshness—an invigorating counterpoint in this wine’s long, gripping finish.

Other Reviews....
Ripe fruit all the way through, it’s pretty plummy, whiffs of freshly baked cherry pie, the palate is quite broad and giving a generic red wine kind of vibe. It’s still quite delicious in this form just cushy and baked a bit and lacking the mineral tension of its cousin cuvees. Drink 2024 - 2027.
