Chapoutier ‘Le Pavillon’ Ermitage 1991

Syrah from France - Rhone
Review Date : 10-Oct-2018
Dark, deep, red-brown colour with a good heart, a little lighter edged. The bouquet is one of elegance and finesse, with a tight core of still sweet and vibrant dark-red, brown-red and black fruits with complexing secondary and tertiary dried herbs, undergrowth and earthy elements. A little gaminess hints at funk, but this is all integrated. On palate, the elegant nature and vibrancy is apparent. Lovely concentration at the core with layers of detail just emerging, and the tannins are fine and powdery, and balanced with a lovely fresh acid thread. If you’re looking for size, this is not it. If you are seeking delicacy, subtlety, finesse and vitality, you have it here. This will continue to age another decade easily. A remarkable wine. 20.0/20 Oct 2018 RRP $N/A
