(10-2018) Aged entirely in barriques (25% new), the 2016 Ermitage le Pavillon shows only a hint of warm pencil shavings on the nose, beautifully setting up notes of fresh blackcurrants. Full-bodied, concentrated and plush across the mid-palate, it turns rich and velvety on the nearly endless finish, marked by savory notes of beef, licorice and espresso. If you wish to catch a glimpse of this wine's greatness, it would be no crime to open a bottle upon release, as I suspect it will close down for a number of years soon afterward.

(11-2019) Smoldering black tea, bay leaf and tobacco hints swirl around a core of gently mulled black cherry and blackberry fruit flavors, ending with singed mesquite and sassafras notes. Sneakily long. This will take time to unwind in the cellar. Best from 2021 through 2040.

(10-2017) Gorgeously pure black fruit on the nose and palate with a lifted black cherry and blackcurrant intensity. Firmly tannic, leaving a sticky grip on the finish. Hardcore, savoury, dense. Not an easy wine to taste young, but should give much greater pleasure with (lots of) bottle age. (RH)

M. Chapoutier

M. Chapoutier

Since 1808, the name Chapoutier has existed in the Rhone Valley. The distant ancestor Polydor Chapoutier began by buying some vines then becoming winemaker then grower, breeder and negociant. The pioneering spirit was already in the family.  Since 1990, Michel, is leading this exceptional company. A land rich in history and traditions. Passionate expression of soils, Michael gives his convictions ways to thrive. History of time. As is true for each element of nature. Time and the earth. Roots, the vine and the fruit. This is where the richness and generosity of the Maison M. Chapoutier begins.
