Chapoutier ‘Le Pavillon’ Ermitage 1998

Syrah from France - Rhone
Review Date : 10-Oct-2018
Dark, garnet-hued red with good depth and some brick-brown on the rim. The bouquet is full and layered with complex aromas of savoury red fruits and florals with earth, spices and game. A touch of funkiness, but within limits. This has accessibility and openness. The palate is rich and luscious, the fruit enhanced by subtle acid piquancy, and possessing a fine, tight heart unfolding sweet and savoury dark-red fruits. The fruit is supported by supple tannin extraction, and there is good acid vitality on the finish, contributing to the length. This is luscious and layered and drinking on its accessible plateau. 19.0-/20 Oct 2018 RRP $N/A
