Ermitage L'Ermite is the most individual statement in the Hermitage appellation and the most prized for followers of M. Chapoutier's grandest of crus. L'Ermite Rouge, a very rare wine (with approximately 375 cases made annually) produced from a 9.5 acre site at the top of Hermitage Hill.
Deep red garnet with violet highlights. Black fruits with spice and ink notes. Tannins are not only very powerful but also mellow. Smoky notes and pepper highlight wonderfully the Syrah varietal on granite soils.
