Colour: Deep garnet red, with purple highlights.

Nose: Red fruit (raspberry, blackcurrant), with a hint of liquorice.

Palate: Good attack, it is a round, elegant wine, soft and concentrated tannins, and a long after taste of blackcurrant and raspberry, spicy (pepper) when it is young.

Soil: The Hermitage "Monier de la Sizeranne" grows on different types of soil, from West to East: "les Bessards": Granite origin. It forms the "soul" of a good Hermitage wine "le Meal": Old alluvial terraces, with a lot of gravels and rolled pebbles, more or less chalky "les Greffieux": Limon with rolled stones.

Harvest: Hand harvesting at optimal maturity. Vinification: The grapes ferment in open wooden vats after total destemming. Two daily treadings ensure a good extraction of the tannins.

The temperature of fermentation varies between 30 and 33Deg C. Maturing: Maturing takes place in oak casks for between 12 and 14 months, of which one third is new oak. Several rackings permit a slow and natural clarification process.

This wine is unfiltered and unfined.
