Chapoutier ‘Le Pavillon’ Ermitage 1992

Syrah from France - Rhone
Review Date : 10-Oct-2018
Deepish garnet-brown colour with tints of red, brick on the rim. The nose is firm and tight with distinctive farmyard and game aromas of brettanomyces dominating. Traces of secondary and tertiary dried earth and undergrowth is present, then the TCA cork taint kicks in giving a hardness. On palate the savoury, farmyard and game flavours of brettanomyces prevail and with the musty cork taint TCA lends hardness. The fruit tannins are still present as is the acidity. But this is spoilt doubly to result in no pleasure. 14.5+/20 Oct 2018 RRP $N/A
