This rarity (only 600 cases produced annually, from 4 hectares) comes form the granite soils of the "lieu-dit" Les Bessards. Its vines are positioned at a lower-altitude band of the Hermitage hill, at approximately 130 meters, above the ruins of a stone house which gives it its name. The tiny yields here (20 HL/HA) and a fermentation regimen of avoiding stem contact in a 24-28 day maceration, make this a deep, brooding, yet supple wine. Its aging capacity is easily 80-100 years, but its style is much more approachable than the traditional wines from this parcel. It has taken the lead position as M. Chapoutier's vintage statement for well over a decade.

Unlike Burgundy and Bordeaux, the Rhône does not have an official cru (vineyard) classification system. There are, however, lieux-dits, “named places” or place names that denote vineyard sites and plots within each appellation. Chapoutier owns some of the most famous plots in the Rhône, including 34 hectares within the tiny Hermitage appellation. This collection of highly sought after wines is coined "Selections Parcellaires". These exceptional wines are created organically and biodinamically and are imported to the United States once per year.
