Description

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
