Producer Notes:
History: The little chapel of Saint-Christophe is situated at the top of the hillside. It was built in 1235 by the knight Gaspard de Stérimberg after he gained the permission of the ‘White Queen of Castille’ to establish his hermitage on this hill after being injured during the Albigensian crusade of 1224
Soil: Our Roussanne and Marsanne grapes are grown in claychalk and sandy, pebble soils on steep slopes, producing complex and elegant white Hermitage wines
Grape Variety: 65% Marsanne ; 35% Roussanne
Age of the vines: 35 years
Vinification: The grapes are harvested by hand into small, 20kg crates, then pressed straight away so as to minimise any risk of oxidation. The wines are then vinified traditionally in wood
Ageing: Following malolactic fermentation in wood, the lees are regularly brought back into suspension through stirring over the 10 to 12 month ageing process, providing the wines with elegant and complex aromas
