“Offers a big blast of honeyed orchard fruits, quince, acacia flowers, and white peach in a flamboyant, rich, layered style. This opulent, bombastic beauty has full-bodied richness, a layered, ripe, opulent texture, no sensation of weight or heaviness, and a great finish.” Jeb Dunnuck – Dec. 2018

Detailed information


After a particularly mild winter, vines came up early to maturity. The hot summer in the Northern Rhone Valley kepted the vines very healthy, and the mid-harvest rains favored a maturing without stress. If the volumes are lower than 2015, the 2016 Laurus Hermitage is a great vintage, with hints of honey and caramelized orange.

Grape varieties



Eastern sector of the hill of Hermitage, on alluvial terraces at 200 meters in altitude.
