Château L'Hermitage

The wine produced at Château l'Hermitage, a tiny property of 4 Hectares bought in 1997, is actually the Château Matras "Tête de Cuvée", owned by the Gaboriaud-Bernard family. The wines come from a vineyard with an average age of 45 years old, well located near Angélus and Beau-Séjour Bécot. They benefit from all the care given to the cuvées called "de garage": cold maceration and aging in new oak barrels for 18 to 20 months. Powerful and silky in the mouth, they can be tasted young but have a great potential for keeping. The few hundred cases produced until 2009, have been quickly snatched up by wine enthusiasts.

AOC Saint-Emilion Grand Cru
Two A.O.C. (Controlled name of origin) share the territory, Saint-Emilion and Saint-Emilion Grand Cru. This region produces wines that are globally imitated but never equalled: Chateau Ausone, Chateau Petrus and Chateau Angelus to name but a few. Yet the historical recognition of wines from the right bank happened later than the Grave or Medoc. Even though wine has been produced since the time of the Roman conquest in the 11th century, the interest in this region only began during the construction of the bridge across the Dordogne in 1820. Everything here is different from other regions around Bordeaux: limestone soil, the climate has a slight maritime influence and strong temperature fluctuations, and the vast majority of grapes grown is Merlot. This gives the wine a bright and fruity roundness that makes them very accessible and pleasant in their early youth with an aging potential as important as the Grands Crus Classés Medoc from the best producers. Saint Emilion is perhaps the most accessible region to discover the Grands Vins de Bordeaux.  The “Grand Cru” appellation is characterized by the qualitative selection, regularly revised, an output limited to 40hl/ha and raising minimum 12 months.
