Serve this wine with fattier foods. Pate or a bleu cheese hamburger come to mind.

Tasting Profile

Look:

Bright and beautiful with hues that remind us of deep red roses or roasted beets. Tall, branching tears start high up on the glass wall.

Smell:

Subdued fruit of blackberry, pomegranate and dried blueberry. Underneath these emerges a subtle aroma of roasted parsnip skin and sage.

Taste:

Well-structured with subtle wild strawberry, dried blueberry, under-ripe red berry and olallieberry. As the wine breathes, it also reveals dried currant, dusty plum, dried mushrooms and subtle thyme.

Finish:

Long, with red fruits that persist (especially at the edges of the palate). Terroir-driven with dried dark flowers.

Pairing:

What the Winery Says

The vineyard of Château l’Ermitage is located on deep soils of sandstone of the Rhone.

It has a southern exposure, overlooking the Camargue. In summer it enjoys a marine micro climate, this sea breeze helps preserve the freshness of wine and increase the aromatic palette of grape varieties.
