Chapoutier ‘Le Pavillon’ Ermitage 2001

Syrah from France - Rhone
Review Date : 10-Oct-2018
Deep garnet-red colour with a good heart, lighter edged. The nose is fulsome in with rich, sweet fruit aromas, but also with plenty of farmyard brettanomyces, with game and meaty funkiness. The aromatics have depth, but the fruit is fading. This has a deep core with power, and vestiges of sweetly ripe black and dark-red fruit, but overlaid by funky, game-like brettanomyces. This has has acid piquancy lending tension, but the palate is getting firm. Despite the brettanomyces, there is underlying fruitiness here. 17.0-/20 Oct 2018 RRP $N/A
