Overview

Hermitage A.C.

The vineyard stretches over three communes of the Drôme department: Tain l'Hermitage, Crozes-Hermitage and Larnage. It takes its name from the story of the Chevalier de Sterimberg. Tired of fighting the Cathares, it is said that this ardent chevalier repented and gave himself up to prayer and viticulture around a retreat at the top of the hill in Tain, named in French "ermitage".

Winery Profile

The Laurus wines, a prestigious range highlighting the know-how of Gabriel Meffre, have been created to represent the greatest attributes of the Côtes du Rhône and Rhône Valley crus. In order to obtain premium quality wines respecting the typicity of every appellation, careful attention is paid to the production and ageing of the wine before, during and after the vinification period. But the great particularity of the Laurus wines comes from the ageing in very special barrels: the Laurus barrel, which has a unique capacity of 275 litres. This allows a progressive oxidation which offers consequently a very elegant texture and taste in perfect harmony with original character of the wine.
