A first cousin of Hermitage La Chapelle but less structured less full-bodied, softer and less long-lived. Goes well with feathered game and with meat. As its name indicates, it comes from the lower slopes of the Hermitage hill Will last five to fifteen years.
"Moderately saturated medium ruby. Perfumed, liqueur-like aromas of framboise kirsch, violet and mint. Juicy, lively black fruit flavors show very good but not outstanding density and concentration. Finishes with easy tannins and good length. A very attractive red wine..."
