About the Producer
The estate where Chateau l’Ermite d’Auzan Gavroche Rouge is made was founded in the 11th Century by the hermits of Sainte Cécile d'Estagel Abbaye and it made wine for pilgrims en route to Santiago de Compostella. The estate encompasses 80 hectares of sunny, south-facing vineyards planted on sandstone soils and benefitting from Mediterranean breezes that cool the vines in the summer.
Our supplier has a close relationship with the owner Jérôme Castillon and he has been instrumental in crafting some of our their own label wines in his cellar. For his own wines, Jérôme restricts the use of oak influence as much as possible and new oak is not used. Favouring old oak, he purchases old oak tronconique fermenters when they get renewed at Domaine Boutinot in Cairanne.
The estate's name changed from Château l'Ermitage to Château L'Ermite d'Auzan in 2020.
Vineyard and Winery
The vines have an average age of 10 years and are cultivated in vineyards strewn with smooth pebbles from the Durance river valley. After harvesting, the grapes are chilled for 3 days, then there is a natural ferment at controlled temperatures. Château L’Ermite d'Auzan works hard to minimise its impact upon the environment and has been certified by Terra Vitis for its efforts. The 80ha estate has been farming organically for quite some time, and received official organic certification in 2020.
Such a wonderful easy drinking wine. This is by far
Our most regular drinker. I’ve introduced multitudes of friends to this wine and they are all purchasing it on the regular. Love it!
