Dark, rustic and characterful with spicy black fruits and roasted coffee on the nose, gutsy flavours and supple tannins.

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

The domain is in the south of the appellation cooled by the sea breezes of the Camargue and on an ancient raised river bed with galets roulés soil. The vines are 25 years old and yields around 50 hl/ha.

In the winery

Grapes are destemmed and fermented traditionally for 15 days to ensure a good balance of fruit and tannins.

Food Recommendations

Côte de Boeuf, lamb cutlets with rosemary, saussison sec, mature hard cheeses.
