The grapes were harvested manually between September 14th and 20th. After alcoholic fermentation in a vat, the wines underwent malolactic fermentation in 275-litre oak Laurus barrels (new barrels from Burgundy and Ile de France regions). Elevage on fine lees over a period of 18 months
Productions: 720 bottles, 142 magnums, 24 jeroboams.

"Blackcurrants, tapenade, earth and bouquet garni/bay leaf notes all emerge from the 2016 Hermitage Laurus Sélection Parcellaire, an undeniably sexy, rounded, even opulent Hermitage that has sweet tannin and impeccable balance." Jeb Dunnuck, January 2018.

The name « Hermitage » comes from the legend of the Knight of Sterimberg. Returning from a Crusade, he repented for his years of warmongering by becoming a hermit, devoting himself to prayer and growing vines on top of the hills of Tain.
