$459.99 Bottle
  • Closure: Cork

Notes sourced from M. Chapoutier

GRAPE VARIETY
Marsanne. Selection of our oldest Marsanne vines.

SOIL
Situated at the top of the hermitage hill, around the chapel, in a place named Ermite on very poor granitic soils (gore).

HARVEST
Hand harvested.

VINIFICATION
After a light cold racking, fermentation in casks at temperature between 20 and 22 °C.

MATURING
After a long period of fermentation the wine is matured on lees at least for 10 months on.

TASTING
Colour : brilliant, yellow, straw. Limpid.
Nose :Complex aromas of vanilla, dried fruits, bitter almond with a hint of lime blossom. Very minerally (typical of Marsanne).
Palate : Very round and rich wine. An elegant balance, with a touch of bitterness at the end (bitter almond). Very ripe white fruit aromas (peach and apricot). Beautiful long lasting in mouth and a huge complexity.
