2011 Ermitage Le Pavillon, M. Chapoutier
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 65 years old 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 great length on the palate, liquorice and tobacco aromas. It has a very long finish.
