The Monier de la Sizeranne Hermitage appears in the glass in a deep garnet red, which is interspersed with violet reflections. The wonderful bouquet of this wine contains the fruity aromas of red berries, such as raspberries and currants, as well as a hint of liquorice and pepper.
On the palate, this red wine is round and elegant, concentrated and with gentle tannins. The reverberation of this wine is characterized by the already perceived red fruits and pepper.
Vinification for the Monier de la Sizeranne Hermitage
The Hermitage is located on the northern Rhône and covers about 136 hectares of vineyards. The vines grow on granite quartz sand covered by mica slate and gneiss.The
climate is influenced by the Mediterranean and with its southern orientation, the Hermitage offers the vines protection from cold northerly winds.
After the hand-picking, the grapes are destemmed, meaning they are freed from stalks and stems, pressed and then fermented in concrete tanks at a controlled temperature. The wine then matures for 12 to 14 months in wooden barrels.
