Chateau L'Ermitage Auzan Rouge
- Costiere de Nimes, Rhone, France
- Chateau L'Ermitage
- Grenache, Syrah, Mourvedre
From sunny slopes in the Costières de Nîmes, this is a warm, southern, spicy wine with a rustic edge.
Giving wild thyme on the nose this dark, full-bodied wine has lots of red ripe fruit, sweet liquorice and roasted coffee flavours and peppery, savoury characters from the Syrah and Mourvèdre. Underpinned by chalky tannins the 2016 is less rustic than in some years and just as appealing.
