Next Stop: Northern Rhône Wine Region

A glimpse of Eastern & Southeastern France-part 2

The northern Rhône is dominated by Syrah (red wine) and Marsanne & Roussane (white wine).

The new home of Maison Delas Frères in Tain l’ Hermitage

We visited the new home of the Domaine that is now located on Tain l’ Hermitage. Reaching a production of 2.000.000 bottles per year, it is definitely another reality of production. Dating back to 1835, it produces wines from domaine-owned vineyards in the most prestigious parts of the northern Rhone such as Hermitage, but also through partnerships from acquired grapes or wine.

After a short visit of the new building, comes the tasting: Saint-Joseph, Cornas, Cote-Rotie & Hermitage. All the wines being elegant, Hermitage is really out-performing. Such a delight!
