This product is currently sold out.
Château l'Ermitage was founded in the XIth Century by the hermits of Sainte Cécile d'Estagel Abbay. It is situated on the pilgrimage route of Santiago de Compostella. The estate's total surface covers 80 hectares of sunny south facing vineyards, which benefit from the airy Mediterranean climate.
Château L’Ermitage Cuvée Sainte-Cécile Blanc, Costières de Nîmes is a tasty, fruity and fresh white from the Rhône. Aromas of orange blossom and a stony, flinty quality. The Viognier and Grenache Blanc add a natural richness of peach and ripe nectarine flavours which are balanced by the fresh grapefruit and citrus characters from the Roussanne, with a touch of mineral complexity. This is bouncy and modern but remains of its place. A lovely aperitif but also matches well with asparagus, grilled fish and chicken in a creamy sauce.
