Chapoutier ‘Le Pavillon’ Ermitage 2005

Syrah from France - Rhone
Review Date : 10-Oct-2018
Dark, deep, black-hued red, a little lighter on the edge. The nose is firm and densely packed with beautifully ripened black fruits with mineral notes and piquant garrigue herbs. The aromatics show great concentration and depth. On palate immensely rich and plush, mouthfilling and generous, the fruit showing wonderful vitality and vibrancy. The wine is actually quite elegant in structure, the sweet fruit underlined by very fine-grained powdery tannin extraction, with fine, balanced acidity enhancing a fragrant and aromatic lift. A wine of great vitality, freshness, but now developing a little secondary complexity, all held by the beautiful structure. 20.0/20 Oct 2018 RRP $N/A
