The wine has a deep garnet red color. It is fruity on the nose with strong aromas of cassis, plums and a touch of violets. The tannic structure is ample and well-rounded, which assures good aging potential.

Soils vary from the granite subsoils of Hermitage Hill to the fluvialglacial alluviums of the south of the Crozes-Hermitage region. A small portion of the wine is aged in barrels to give a touch of oak to the final blend. The rest of the wine stays in concrete tanks to preserve the fruit aromas.

The winery was founded in 1835 by Philippe Delas and Charles Audibert, and passed on to Philippe’s two sons (one of which married Charles’ daughter). They changed the name of the maison to Delas Frères in the early 1920s and established this name as one synonymous with high quality. In 1993 Delas Frères became part of the Champagne Louis Roederer group, which shares a similar family owned history and pursuit of excellence. 2020 saw the completion of a new state of the art winery and house in Tain Hermitage where all of the top appellation wines are vinified and aged, underlying their commitment to producing the highest quality wines.
