Chapoutier ‘Le Pavillon’ Ermitage 1999

Syrah from France - Rhone
Review Date : 10-Oct-2018
Dark, black-hued garnet-red colour, a little lighter edged. This is shy and difficult to read on the nose, with ethereal savoury dark-red fruits with black minerals, dried garrigue herbs all contributing. On palate softly taut with richness and some density, showing black fruits with savoury, earthy secondary complexities. The tannins are fine and there is good acidity enhancing the dried lifted florals. This appears in an ‘in-between’ phase and doesn’t quite come together, but has positive componentry. 18.0+/20 Oct 2018 RRP $N/A
