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.
Eastern sector of the Hermitage hill, great ‘white terroir‘ on alluvial terraces at 200 meters in altitude providing length and freshness.
Manual harvest. A brief cold-soak prior to pressing. Fermentation is initiated in tank before the whole cuvée is placed in 275lt Laurus oak barrels, both new and 1-year old, to finish the alcoholic fermentation followed by the malo-lactic fermentation. The wine then spends 20 months in barrel, during the first two months of which the wine undergoes fine lees stirring (bâtonnage).

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.
