Chapoutier Ermitage Le Pavillon 2019
Chapoutier is amongst the most recognisable labels in the Rhone and indeed the world. Rare and highly sought-after, M.Chapoutier’s brooding Ermitage Le Pavillon comes from a parcel of vines anchored on the granite soils on the Hill of Hermitage.
"Full-bodied, concentrated, and powerful, it’s a perfect example of the Iron Fist in a Velvet Glove saying and has incredible opulence paired with precision and finesse. Giving up both blue and black fruits as well as powdered stone, violets, scorched earth, and subtle smoke, this is pure Hermitage magic and Syrah doesn’t get any better." - 100pts, Jeb Dunnuck
