Produced with passion by renowned winemaker Jean Luc Colombo, this wine offers an extraordinary taste experience, combining power, complexity and elegance.

Origin and grape varieties

From a unique terroir marked by granite and schist soils, this wine draws its strength from old Syrah vines, the region's emblematic grape variety, which are on average 40 years old. The addition of 3% Roussanne brings a touch of finesse and freshness to the blend.

Vinification and ageing
Hand-picked when perfectly ripe, the grapes undergo a traditional vinification process that respects the fruit. After gentle fermentation in vats, the wine is matured for 18 months in a combination of new and second-hand oak barrels, allowing the tannins to refine and the aromatic complexity to develop.

Tasting notes
Hermitage Le Rouet reveals a deep, dense purple colour, heralding the richness to come. On the nose, a complex palette of aromas unfolds, combining intense notes of ripe black fruit, such as blackberry, bilberry and blackcurrant, with spicy touches of black pepper and cloves. Hints of violet, liquorice and leather round off this bewitching bouquet.

On the palate, the wine has a full, fleshy attack, revealing a velvety texture and robust yet elegantly integrated tannins. The intense black fruit flavours are confirmed, accompanied by a hint of bitter cocoa and a touch of smoke. The freshness provided by the Roussanne adds a welcome balance, while a long, lingering finish leaves spicy, toasty notes on the palate.

Roast game, lamb confit or dishes simmered in strong spices will be enhanced by the power and aromatic complexity of Hermitage Le Rouet 2021.
