Delas Les Launes Crozes-Hermitages 2019

This is a very enjoyable Crozes-Hermitage from negociant Delas in the Rhône Valley.  It has aromas of savoury roast meats and smoke, in the style of syrah from Hermitage rather than, for Australian readers, the more sweet fruited and broody style of Barossa shiraz or the newer wave spicier expressions from southern Victoria and New Zealand.  The palate is full bodied, savoury and its tannins are enjoyably firm.  Good length completes the picture.  This Crozes provides a good glimpse of Hermitage at a substantially lower price.  Rating: Very Good (★★★★).  Reviewed: May 2022.
