Winemaker's Notes:

Our Hermitage comes from a loess site, particularly well exposed to the south-west, with long hours of sunlight. Average age of the vines is 30 years. Foliage is trimmed back around the fruit to let the sunlight in, and green harvesting ensures a yield no higher than 35 Hl/Ha. Harvesting is manual, with careful sorting and takes place as late as possible to reach optimal maturity. Winemaking is the same as for Crozes Hermitage, but vatting is longer, taking about 3 to 4 weeks. Ageing is exclusively in 600 litre barrels for 12 months, as we believe these larger barrels are well suited to the Syrah varietal, and do not over oak the wine.

Tasting Notes:

The 2009s show intense color, of purple and deep ruby, and the nose is fresh and suave. On the palate, there is balance with concentrated but fine tannins, and good length.
