2008 Ermitage Rouge, Le Pavillon, Chapoutier Sélections Parcellaires

Sold Out

The Pavillon is so-named in reference to the ruins of an old stone house which is something less of a landmark than the chapel, it has to be admitted, but a landmark none the less. The wine is dense, sinewy and long, with distinctive black cherry fruits, licorice and cigar box evidenced. The palate is broad and muscular, uncompromising and very long. Drink 2014-2020.
