Delas : Seigneur de Maugiron 2017

The concentration and balance of a red wine of Rotie Coast made by Delas

The producer

Founded in 1835, the Maison Delas Frères is a reference among the wines of the Northern Rhône Valley . If its acquisition by the Maison de Champagne Deutz in 1977 marked the beginning of a new era, the development of the house internationally continued thanks to its acquisition in 1993 by the Rouzaud family, the majority shareholder of the Louis Roederer group.

The vineyard

The Maison Delas Frères watches over a vineyard spread over three exceptional appellations of the Rhone Valley: Crozes-Hermitage, Hermitage and Saint-Joseph. In order to magnify the expression of each of these terroirs, winemaking as well as breeding are performed in a parcellary manner.

The wine

This Seigneur de Maugiron 2017 by Delas is made from vineyards located on the Côte Brune and the Côte Blonde. In the Middle Ages, the Lord of Maugiron shared his Cote-Rotie vineyard  between his two daughters, one brunette and the other blond. It is from there that the names "Côte Brune" and "Côte Blonde" come.

Winemaking and ageing

Grapes are harvested manually at full maturity and in a parcellary manner. Two days of pre-fermentation cold maceration precede a traditional winemaking in open concrete tanks. Alcoholic fermentation is accompanied by pour-overs and punch-downs. About 20 day maceration. Ageing for 14 to 16 months is carried out in large barrels (50% new, 50% of a year) with regular extraction.

Blend

The Le Seigneur de Maugiron 2017 by Delas is a 100% Syrah.

Tasting

Colour

The wine is an intense dark purple colour.

Nose

Powerful and fine, the nose reveals fragrances of blackcurrant, redcurrant and licorice with subtle oaky notes.

Palate

Concentrated and of a beautiful finesse, the palate seduces with its tight tannins, its balance and its silky touch.

Food and wine pairing

The Le Seigneur de Maugiron 2017 by Delas is ideally accompanied by meat, beef roasts, water game, truffles or even braised boar.

Serving

For an optimal tasting, open the bottle 1 to 3 hours before tasting. It is advisable to decant the wine if the time of keeping in the cellar is more than 5 years.
