With the wisdom and humility of the great vine growers, Marc Sorrel has maintained an area of special heritage on top of the most beautiful slope of Hermitage’s legendary hill that has an exceptional pebbled terroir
Domaine Marc Sorrel with its 4 hectares has built its reputation due to its fabulous red and white Hermitage vintages. As a homage to the Northern Rhône Valley wines, Marc Sorrel respectfully and passionately grows Syrah, Roussanne and Marsanne, the traditional grapes of the area.
The single vineyard plots called "Le Méal" and "Greffieux" are superbly exposed to ensure the ideal ripening of the Syrah grapes. They are the blend’s core of the iconic red Le Gréal. The prestigious limestone hillside of "Rocoules" is the origin of a white Hermitage produced in very limited quantities. It has a racy, powerful style that displays incredible finesse.
As a key benchmark in the Northern Rhône Valley, the talented Marc Sorrel embodies the elite of the biggest names in Hermitage.
