Composed of 100% Marsanne, this white wine is classified in AOC Hermitage and comes from grapes from 3 different vineyards.
The "Meal" is composed of an ancient soil with many pebbles. "Murets" refers to the location of granitic arena soils and "Chante-Alouette" rests on a clay-limestone layer.
After manual harvesting at maturity and pressing, 1/3 of the wine is vinified in half-muids and the rest in vats.
The color is of a beautiful green gold, brilliant.
Its complex and subtle nose distils aromas of quince, walnuts, honey, ginger, acacia and linden.
The palate is frank, elegant with a finish with fresh almond flavors.
To taste on seashells or fish with white flesh.
The Hermitage Rouge Monier of the Sizerrane is an assemblage of Bessards, Meal and Greffieux.
"Leading off the Hermitage releases, the 2014 Hermitage Monier de la Sizeranne sports a deep ruby/purple color to go with impressive notes of blackcurrants, cassis, charcoal and olive characteristics. Medium to full-bodied, it has excellent richness and depth, sweet tannin and a charming, forward style."
