Detailed information


After a very cold winter and late spring, the flowering process ended in mid-June. Summer weather conditions were stable with plentiful subsoil water supplies, enabling the ripening process to be completed in the best of conditions. Manual harvest began exceptionally late on the 20th of September.

Grape varieties



Plots are selected on the Eastern sector of the Hermitage hills, on alluvial terraces of the Rhone river – 200m high.


After alcoholic fermentation in a vat, the wines underwent malolactic fermentation in 275-litre oak Laurus barrels. Elevage on fine lees over a period of 15 months (3 new barrels and 3 one-year old barrels).
