Chateau l'Ermitage Auzan White
When we first tasted this elegant white wine the most striking feature was the balance of ripe, sweet tropical fruit with refreshing acidity. It is a blend of 60% Roussanne, 20% Viognier and 20% Grenache. Peach and apricot mix effortlessly with lovely lemon and lime – the benefits of being near the sea in a hot climate. 3 months lees aging has given this wine a textured mouth feel and a satisfying finish.

Located near the Roman cities of Nimes and Arles, winemaking at Chateau l’Ermitage goes back a very long way. Today, the not-so-old Michel and son Jerome Castillon, are the second and third generations to run this beautiful estate. With a base of deep sand, silt and pebbles, the vineyards are located on the old floodplains of the Rhone and Petit Rhone rivers. Facing south towards the Camargue and the Mediterranean, the property enjoys a marine micro-climate, cooled by the fresh sea-breezes and the edges of the Mistral wind. We have chosen Cuvee Auzan, a range of red, white and rose wines to demonstrate the quality and versatility of the wine from this unique wine-producing region, Costieres de Nimes.
