Established in 1937, the Hermitage appellation extends over 136 hectares, shared between the communes of Crozes-l'Hermitage, Larnage and Tain-l'Hermitage, in the heart of the Rhone Valley. The vines of the Hermitage appellation enjoy a Mediterranean climate and are planted in granite sand covered with mica-schist and gneiss, with alluvial stones, granite, limestone, silicas, rolled pebbles and clay. The appellation produces red wines (Syrah, Roussanne, Marsanne) and white wines (Marsanne, Roussanne). The reds are powerful, round and supple, evolving more finesse and harmony as they age. They reveal floral notes, spices and black fruits. The whites are unctuous, developing fruity, floral, creamy and honey aromas.
