    Tasting Notes

    Grape variety
    Syrah

    Soil
    Our Hermitage “Monier de la Sizeranne” comes from a blending of different soils from West to East: “les Bessards”: from a granitic origin, it constitutes the “soul” of a good Hermitage.
    Also “le Méal”: old alluvial terraces, with a lot of gravels and shingles more or less calcareous. Then “les Greffieux”: silty soil with shingles.

    Harvest
    Hand harvesting at optimal maturity

    Vinification
    Entirely destemmed, the grapes ferment in concrete tanks. From one to two daily treading ensure a good extraction. Temperature varies between 30 and 33°C.

    Maturing
    The ageing is performed in oak casks between 12 and 14 months. This gives to the wine woody aromas which are a component of the bouquet. Several rackings allow a slow and natural clarification.

    Tasting

    Colour: deep garnet red, with purplish lights.
    Nose: red fruit (raspberry, blackcurrant), with a hint of liquorice
    Palate: good attack, round and elegant wine with concentrated and gentle tannins. The final is on blackcurrant, raspberry and spicy (pepper) aromas when it is young
