Chapoutier ‘Le Pavillon’ Ermitage 1994

Syrah from France - Rhone
Review Date : 10-Oct-2018
Dark, deep, black-brown colour with mahogany hues. This is fully mature, even open and accessible with aromas of fading dark-red fruits, savoury red florals, dried herbs, game, earth and cedar, all integrated with some nutty suggestions. The palate is full and still sweetly luscious with complex, savoury game and earthy flavours, along with secondary and tertiary earth and undergrowth and dried herbs. This does not quite have the concentration, but fades somewhat on the finish. This still has length. Some tasters found the oxidation too much for their threshold, but I was not unhappy with its integration. 17.5+/20 Oct 2018 RRP $N/A
