This wine comes mainly from the lieu-dit called Maison Blanche which sits atop the hill of Hermitage. Maison Blanche is the plateau of the Rocoules. The soil is iron-rich clay and loess (a fine dust-like soil brought by the Sirocco wind). It is important to constantly farm and compost this vineyard to maintain the fine top layer of loess soil as it easily erodes. Thus, another good reason for organic farming methods employed. This terroir is very interesting for the white as it comes from a colder soil and gives aromas of peaches, hawthorne and acacia blossom. It is a white Hermitage which has the advantage of being approachable at a young age for drinking pleasure.
