Hermitage 2012

AOP Hermitage Red


  • 92 pts Wine Advocate
  • 16/20 Bettane & Desseauve


Brilliant, dark blue-red colour. Bewitching nose of plum purée and vanilla flower with great finesse and elegance. On the palate extremely smooth almost creamy texture, already delicious now but will evolve gracefully over the next few years. (August 2014)

Food & wine pairings

Truffle omelette.
Doe with cranberry sauce

Detailed information


Winter was cold and dry. The water shortage was solved thanks to spring rains. Vigilance was at its peak throughout the vineyard in April and May due to significant variations in temperature and rainfall. August was marked by intense heat. The end of August and September brought a drop in temperature caused by the Mistral and rain.
