Chapoutier ‘Le Pavillon’ Ermitage 1990

Syrah from France - Rhone
Review Date : 10-Oct-2018
Dark, deep, brown-red with garnet hues, lighter on the edge. This has an astonishing array of aromatics with both positive and not so positive attributes. Lovely rich, savoury and spicy secondary and tertiary fruit with undergrowth, and with volume and detail. Hints of decrepit elements and some oxidation and of course a little funkiness, and slight volatile elements. The wine is still densely packed with a layering of dark-red and brown fruits, developed dried herbs and game plus earth. This still has a lusciousness of fruit, which is supported by very fine-grained flowery tannins with acid energy. Liquorice and spices unfold. An amazing wine that could be very controversial. 19.0+/20 Oct 2018 RRP $N/A
