Marsanne. Selection of our oldest vines.
Situated at the top of the Hermitage hill, around the chapel, in a place named the “Ermite”, soils are very poor and granitic.
Hand harvesting at maturity.
After a light cold-settling, fermentation is entirely made in casks between 18 and 20°C.
After a long period of fermentation, the wine is matured on lees, with regular stirrings, between 10 and 12 months.
Colour: Brilliant and limpid straw yellow.
Nose: Complex aromas of vanilla, almonds, dried fruits and linden-tree. The minerality is marked (typical of the soil).
Palate: Very round and rich wine. An elegant balance, with a light bitterness at the end. Very ripe white fruit aromas (peach and apricot). Beautiful length in the mouth and huge complexity. According to the vintage, the wine can be kept from 30 to 60 years, indeed from 50 to 75 years.
