Hermitage Wine

When the word “Syrah” appears in wine conversations, another name quickly follows – the Hermitage AOC is considered the origin point of this marvelous grape varietal. The hard-working winemakers of this appellation have been making their presence felt on the global stage for ages, and Syrah has played a huge part in their initiative. If you decide to visit this legendary hill, the feeling of wilderness hovers in the wind, invigorating you and opening your appetite for some delicious wine. Once you try Hermitage’s finest, however, that appetite threatens to stay open for an eternity, as these wines will carve a living space in your memory after so much as one sip.

The bouquet of scents and flavors these bottles present is nothing short of astounding, with a texture that cannot be fully deciphered by anyone who isn’t a seasoned wine-tasting veteran. Expect to be blown away by an orchestral composition of primal blackberries and black raspberries, earthy minerals, playful spice and a thick bassline of smoke. If you enjoy pondering about the nature of wine and its many complexities, spending untold hours fantasizing about the nuances and subtleties that your favorite bottles develop over the years, then you’ll have a field day with Hermitage wines. Their immense aging potential makes them ideal candidates for hoarding in your cellar, and they’re also perfect for private evenings where you drink by yourself, fully giving yourself over to the whirling tides of glorious grape — true love at its finest. Bon appetit!
