2016 Ermitage Le Pavillon, M. Chapoutier


A 30-year wine, the 2016 Ermitage le Pavillon is inky in color, displays the essence of crushed rock on the nose, offers flavors of dark chocolate, espresso and scorched meat on the palate and lingers forever on the finish. This full-bodied, intensely concentrated and tannic wine represents the essence of Les Bessards. Looking at my notes, the rating may well prove to be conservative.

Joe Czerwinski, Wine Advocate
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.
