The fruit for Saint-Esprit comes from a small valley in the northern Ardeche, to the west of the river Rhone. The vineyards are south-facing granite, and hence particularly well suited to Syrah, as well as naturally low-yielding.

Winery: The grapes were destemmed and then fermented for fifteen days in closed vats, with daily pumping over; temperature was limited to 28-30°C. Malolactic took place in stainless steel, and then thirty percent of the wine was racked to oak barrels while the rest remained in tank.

Taste: With Syrah to the fore, this is full of berry fruit, violet, liquorice, and spices. It has a generous, rounded palate and a long, elegant finish.

Producer Information

Many Rhone producers have enjoyed a renaissance in the last decade, and none more so than Delas. The company has history (back to 1836) and land (twelve prime hectares, including La Landonne and Les Bessards). Since 1997,it has also had a winemaker capable of realising all that potential. Jacques Grange graduated from Dijon, worked forstar consultant Jean-Luc Colombo and raised the quality at Chapoutier before arriving at Delas. Under his influencea more modern, boutique approach has been taken: there is more (though not excessive) new wood in evidence,fining and filtration have been minimised, cold soaks and lees contact have boosted fruit intensity and textural richness.The wines now combine clarity of flavour with hedonistic appeal - surely the ultimate goal for a Rhone producer.
