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.

2011 Ermitage Le Pavillon, M. Chapoutier
M. Chapoutier

The name Chapoutier has long been associated with the northern Rhône thanks to the calibre of their plots around the region, but it was only once Michel Chapoutier took control of the family business in 1988 that quality accelerated it to become the world-class concern it is today. Michel Chapoutier is undoubtedly one of the greatest winemakers of our time, and has successfully extended his business to include vineyards in the Roussillon, Alsace and Australia. But his Northern Rhône Syrahs and Marsannes of exquisite quality remain the main attraction.
