Tasting Notes

Elegant sweet wine with an excellent balance of sweetness and freshening acidity. Aromas of ripe peach with some hints of lemon verbena, peppermint and lavender honey. It is deliciously grapey and luscious with good length and grapefruity finish.

Producer details

Château l'Ermitage was founded in the XIth Century by the hermits of Ste Cécile d'Estagel Abbay. It is situated on the pilgrimage route of Santiago de Compostella. The estate's total surface covers 80 hectares of sunny south facing vineyards, which benefit from the airy Mediterranean climate. The domain's owners for the past 30 years have been Michel and Jérôme Castillon. The work they accomplish allows the grape to breathe out and the use of oak barrels for ageing is restricted as much as possible.

In the vineyard

Hand-picked from 15 year old vines which yield 40 hl/ha. The vineyard is made up of rolled Durance pebbles - the Durance river flowed through the valley well before the Rhône.

In the winery

Manual harvest when the grapes are super-ripe to obtain the concentration of a "vendanges tardives". The pressing and the racking of the must are done at low temperatures. The fermentation is carried out at controlled temperatures and halted at 80 grams of residual sugar by the addition of fortifying spirit.
