Current stock: 5

Ermitage Rouge Le Pavillon, M Chapoutier, Hermitage, Northern Rhone, France 2015 

4 ha vineyard, hand-harvested 100% organic Syrah produced using biodynamic principles. Vines are 90-100 years' old. Only free-run juice used for fermentation in concrete tanks. Maturation in oak barrels (30% new) for 18-20 months.

This wine comes from ‘lieu-dit’ Les Bessards. The plot has a specific geology: It is composed of a fine layer of sediment lying on granitic subsoil. The vines are located at an altitude of approximately 130 metres on the Hermitage hill, above the ruins of a stone house giving its name to the wine. With tiny yields (20 hl/ha), this is perhaps the most complex of the various Ermitage wines. Le Pavillon is characterised by a velvety texture and great length on the palate; liquorice, tar, raspberry, blackberry, walnut and tobacco aromas. It has a very long finish.

"Surely a 100-point wine in nearly any other context, the 2015 Ermitage le Pavillon is a terrific wine. Full-bodied and intense, it offers tremendous notes of crushed stone, mocha and ripe plum given shape and texture by powerful yet ripe tannins. The finish is nearly endless, oozing with essence of granite and balanced by bright acids. Wow." 99+/100 Joe Czerwinski robertparker.com 

A wine that will age gracefully for many decades.
