Hermitage

Located on the western bank of France's northern Rhône River, Hermitage is a famous and historic wine appellation known for its exceptional red and white wines. Located near the town of Tain-l'Hermitage, this appellation is dotted with impressive terraced vineyards on the steep slopes of Hermitage Hill.

The Syrah grape is used for red Hermitage wines, which are among the most appreciated in the world. These wines are known for their deep color, powerful structure and complex aromas. In youth they often show intense fruitiness, like blackcurrant and blackberry, while over time they develop into more subtle notes of spice, pepper and earthy nuances. Hermitage red wines have the potential to age beautifully and can develop a silky texture over time.

The Marsanne and Roussanne grape varieties are used for white Hermitage wines. These wines are rich, full and complex, with aromas of peach, apricot, honey and a hint of hazelnut. The white Hermitage wines can also mature well and gain more depth and complexity over the years.

The Hermitage appellation is famous for its terroir, consisting of granitic soils that contribute to the wines' distinctive properties. Hermitage has AOC (Appellation d'Origine Contrôlée) status and has strict rules regarding grape varieties, yield per hectare and vinification methods.
