Hermitage AOC
Hermitage AOC wines come from the northern section of the Rhône Valley in southeastern France. The reds are among the finest French wines but the whites are by no means in the same league. The reds are may from Syrah with up to 15% Roussanne and Marsanne. The whites are made from the latter two varieties. The reds may be cellared for 12 to 30 years; the whites for 6 to 12 years.
