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



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).
