Delas Freres

Delas Frères motto is "Placing Man and Wine at the heart of the Terroir." With steeply sloping vineyards encompassing some 30 hectares of vines and adapting growing practices to each plot of vines the combination of man and nature works well for Delas Frères.

Part of the Roederer Group since 1993, CEO Fabrice Rosset brought Technical Director, Jacques Grange to the domaine in 1996. Placing importance on technical advances, investment and renovation work began including the vat-house and the cellars, each wine was reviewed and reworked. Old stainless steel vats were replaced by small 85 hl concrete vats. These containers ensure that the batches of grapes can be separated, terroir by terroir. The cellars old casks were replaced by 600 Burgundy barrels. This updating has contributed to the revival of Delas and in 2006 vineyards were expanded with the purchase of 6 hectares and 12 hectares situated in Chassis in the Crozes-Hermitage appellation.
