It was in the 18th century that the name of Ermitage appeared in memory of a knight who, when returning from the crusades (13th century) and tired of fighting, lived as a hermit on a hill given by Blanche de Castille, Queen of France. He planted a vineyard there. The hermitage blanc of L'Orée is made from old vines (on average, 80 years old) with very low yield, ensuring quality production. The barrel ageing lasts just under a year, on lees with regular stirring. This exceptional white wine develops complex and subtle aromas of quince, walnut, honey and acacia with a note of linden. The creaminess of the attack gives way to a fresh and impressive finish.
Maison Chapoutier is without doubt one of the most prestigious names in the Rhône producing some of the finest Hermitage. The domain converted its 350 hectares of vines to biodynamic viticulture, making it the largest vineyard to adopt this method of cultivation. It has held certification since 1999. The Chapoutier savoir faire has spread to other vineyards in other winemaking regions: Provence, Beaujolais, Roussillon, Champagne, Alsace, Portugal but also Australia. In 1879, Polydor Chapoutier bought a few hectares of vines and started a negociant business. Seven generations have succeeded him, and Michel Chapoutier is currently at the helm. Since 1996, all the labels have been transcribed in braille. Chapoutier is often one of the last to harvest to ensure that grapes reach optimal maturity.
