Delas Marquise de la Tourette Hermitage 2000

87 points

Hermitage, Rhone, France 13%

Slightly floral notes on the nose – this would have been a very floral wine in its youth I think, perhaps Grenache like tones.

First impression is classic warm shiraz flavours, but lightish, somewhat dilute and soft. Yet is stands up to food and after a few glasses comes across as a rather strongly flavoured wine, though in no way alcoholic, big, syrupy or even concentrated.

This wine (bought in USA) was not as profound as the 1999 (bought in France).
