Chapoutier ‘Le Pavillon’ Ermitage 1997

Syrah from France - Rhone
Review Date : 10-Oct-2018
Dark, deep red colour with some bricking on the edge. The bouquet is full, open, broad and accessible, but with good depth, showing savoury secondary and tertiary aromas of dried red fruits, garrigue herb, earth and a little game. This grows in density with aeration, On palate full and savoury, now starting to show a little game and funkiness, but the mouthfeel has plenty of acid vitality and piquancy. The flavours are up-front, broad and accessible now, and the wine is into maturity. The finish is long and complex. Fully accessible now and with well-developed mature flavours. 18.0+/20 Oct 2018 RRP $N/A
