Tasting Notes

The eponymous vineyard grows on very poor granitic and shallow soils surrounding the chapel of ¿Ermite¿ at the top of the hill of Hermitage. The age of the vines averages over 80 years. This wine is the most individual statement in the Hermitage appellation, and the most prized for followers of M. Chapoutier¿s grandest of crus. L¿Ermite traditionally produces the most elegant and aromatic Hermitage. It has powerful tannins, smoky notes and black pepper ¿ the perfect expression of Syrah grown on granite soils. Magnums available.
