La Mordorée

Ermitage wines possess a rich historical past.

They were appreciated as early on as Roman times when they were enjoyed (as well as Côte Rotie wines) under the name of " Vienne wines "and were later to be called " Saint Christopher's hillside wines " because of a chapel there bearing the saint's name. They were also to be known of as " Tournon wines ".

The name of Ermitage probably first appeared in the XVIIth Century in memory of Henry Gaspard, a knight from Stérimberg : who having come back from the Crusades (in the XIIIth Century) and tired of waging war, lived as a hermite on a hillside which had been given to him by Anne of Castille, Queen of Spain.

There he planted a vineyard. Alexander Dumas as well as the Tsar Nicholas II are among the many connoisseurs of this particularly highly estimated wine.

COLOUR : deep garnet red with purple lights.
NOSE : tarry and smoky, raspberry, blackberry, walnut, liquorice.
MOUTH : complex, strong attack, velvety and balanced, long final, liquorice, tobacco, cocoa. According to the vintage, the wine can be kept from 30 to 60 years, indeed from 50 to 75 years.

About us

Company details

The words that best describe Maison M. Chapoutier.
An Estate that nurtures its vineyards with the greatest respect for natural balance and terroir since 1808.
The family motto “Fac et Spera” – do and hope – says it all.
Two words that sum up all the patience and daring that this art demands: patience in relation to nature which presides; daring for the winemaker, who observes, chooses and assists.
The wine will be the faithful expression of this alchemy.
