Ermitage (Marsanne)

Marsanne arrived in Valais in the 19th century. It has its roots in the Côtes-du-Rhône region in France, in particular the area of Tain L’Hermitage, which is where the name Ermitage, used in Valais, comes from.

This is a vigorous, late-ripening grape whose full potential is realized when it has the best exposures, grown in dry soil that is not very rich, and the harvest is well managed. It then gives wines that are full and rich, generous, often with notes of strawberry and wild raspberry. In some years the grapes can be harvested late.

The sweet wine that results is a blend of richness, opulence, voluptuousness and subtle aromas of truffle, honey, raspberry brandy. This is a wine that is always worth aging, whether it’s a sweet or dry one, in order to let it fully develop its harmony

Serve at 8° -10° C
