2 cases
Equiv. £333.33 per bottle

Tasting Note:

Deep, seductive and serious on the nose, notes of spice, earth and minerally rocks with tight-packed concentrated cassis and hedgerow berry fruit, explosive and powerful yet so energetic and tense, great length of flavour, sheer class. The plot is situated at the top of the Hermitage Hill, around the chapel. The elevated position of the vineyard, over 200 metres, allows long ripening at the end of the growing season. The soil of loess provides excellent drainage for rainwater. Vines are over 80 years old and are planted on granitic poor soils. L’Ermite traditionally produces the most elegant and aromatic Ermitage.
