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.

After a very warm summer period, welcome rains arrived mid-August, followed again by glorious sunny weather. A beneficial wind then helped to accelerate the ripening process. This allowed the grapes to be harvested under ideal conditions, with perfectly ripe healthy fruit. Thanks to this, 2015 is one of the greatest vintages of the last ten years.
Harvest started on September 6th 2015.

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.
