2014 Delas Frères Les Bessards  (Hermitage) 93

Medium/full-bodied and relatively forward for a young Hermitage, the wine is smoky, floral and almost lush in its palate presence. The deep red fruits come along with spice, flowers, espresso and thyme. Give this another 7 years or so and it should be showing well.

When to Drink Delas Freres Cote Rotie, Anticipated Maturity, Decanting Time
