Appellation d'origine protégée

From the repentance of the Knight of Sterimber during the 13th century, to the exceptional situation of its vineyards, Hermitage is a legendary Cru. Our Laurus Hermitage white honors this reputation with a 100% Marsanne exhaling all the qualities of a great wine.

Balance & Finesse

The early plant growth triggered by the mild winter and hot spring was halted during the month of July, which proved cool and wet. The high temperatures in August and September enabled the grapes to achieve a good level of ripeness. The harvest began on the 11th September in excellent conditions.

Plots selected within the Tain l’Hermitage sector on alluvial terraces covered with small pebbles and clayey, north/south facing soils between 150 and 200 m in altitude. The combination of these two terroirs produces structured wines with a very pleasant minerality.


Manual harvest. Skin maceration followed by pressing. After the alcoholic fermentation process in a vat, the malolactic fermentation process was completed in 275-litre oak Laurus barrels at controlled temperatures (16/18 °C). Elevage on fine lees over a period of 14 months with stirring of lees during the 1st month.

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.
