Delas Freres Hermitage Domaine des Tourettes 2010
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 pâte 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.
