Brunel De La Gardine Hermitage is made in very small quantities, but with great amounts of know-how. Inky dark with purple hues. Because the Hermitage terroir gives so few grapes, the wines are renowned for their concentration and their aromatic intensity. Aromas of blackcurrant and bramble fruit are joined by peppery spice, floral violet notes, a touch of ink and meaty, animal notes. Over time, delicate aromas of undergrowth, leather and black truffle reveal themselves. Elegant, powerful and robust on the palate, it is beautifully balanced and silkily textured.

Sheltered from the north wind, most of the slopes of the hill of Hermitage face south and have plenty of sunshine. The soil of this historic terroir consists of granitic sand covered with mica schist, gneiss and round, alluvial stones. One of the most pretigious appellations of the southern French vineyards, Hermitage is worthy of gracing the finest of tables.

About the grower

The Brunel family has returned to its négociant heritage with the Brunel De La Gardine collection. This allows them to offer wines from a wide range of both Southern and Northern Rhône appellations without the incredible expense of purchasing vineyards. Patrick Brunel chooses the best wines from each appellation thanks to his longstanding relationships with top winegrowers in the area. The family then uses all their knowledge and experience to blend and mature the wines, respecting the tradition and the typicity of each terroir. The packaging, with the special Gardine bottle, is the signature of this fine selection.
