Delas Freres Hermitage Domaine des Tourettes 2010


We're sorry, but this product is not currently available.

The wine has a deep garnet-red hue with purple tinges. The nose, as with all good Hermitages, is both intense and complex. On the palate the wine is well-built and its ample volume reveals the fine qualities of its granite terroir, finishing with a refreshing mineral-like edge. Pair this wine with rare or well-cooked red meat, roasted game, marinated meat dishes and game stews. We recommend opening this bottle between one and three hours before drinking.

Wine AdvocateOne of the finest Hermitage Domaine des Tourettes I have ever tasted is the 2010, which comes close to rivaling their prodigious 2009. A wine of great intensity, it possesses an inky/purple color, plenty of creme de cassis, licorice, lead pencil shavings, camphor, flint and barbecue smoke characteristics, and a thickness and viscosity that eclipse that of the 2009. Full-bodied and powerful with sweet tannins, a striking floral/mineral component in the mid-palate, and a huge, massive finish, this brilliant Hermitage should be consumed between 2018-2035.

Wine SpectatorThis shows a lush feel, with velvety structure that lets ample fig, blackberry paste and plum p√Ęte de fruit notes play out. Cocoa, loam and dark tea all flitter through the finish, adding to the inviting feel. Best from 2014 through 2024. 350 cases imported.
