Variety Bordeaux & Rhone Tasting Bundle
Sample Three DeLille Favorites
Take home three of our Bordeaux-inspired favorites and taste along with Director of Winemaking Jason Gorski.
2019 Chaleur Blanc:
This energetic, canary yellow wine presents a complex nose with aromas of grapefruit, golden hay, lemon zest, petrichor and pastry dough. 2019 Chaleur Blanc offers fresh fruit flavors of apricot and white peach on the palate, deliciously balanced with savory herb notes of basil and tarragon. This vintage is well proportioned throughout, with integrated barrel notes and the cuvee’s traditional crisp acidity.
Our 2017 D2 offers abundant dried cranberry and raspberry aromas surging from the glass, with intertwined darker fruits notes of cassis, blueberry, and blackberry. Delicately balanced oak influence contributes cocoa and coffee bean notes while remaining completely respectful of the fruit. This appealing wine is vibrant and extraordinarily fresh on the palate, with persistent fruit flavors of pomegranate and blueberry. Understated and subtle tannin provides welcome structure, while excellent early integration offers accessibility, generosity and abundant pleasure despite the wine’s youth.
In the glass, this wine is dark ruby in color with aromas of Syrah (60%) including tea leaf, violets and lavender combined with notes of Cabernet (40%) including Herbes de Provence, black currant and cassis. Mouthwatering and mineral on the palate, the 2017 Doyenne presents blue and red fruit flavors with blueberries, red licorice, and raspberries. This wine is beautifully integrated and surprisingly accessible in its youth, with sweet, plush tannins and wonderful balance.
