Drinking great today and a classic expression of this incredible terroir, Delas's 2004 Cote Rotie la Landonne is almost overflowing with notions of Asian spice, olive, dried earth, hints of bacon fat and ample sweet Syrah fruit. Aged 36 months in 100% new French oak, it's medium to full-bodied, elegant, silky and seamless, with no hard edges and a layered, ready-to-go feel. I'd happily drink bottles anytime over the coming decade.
