Chapoutier ‘Le Pavillon’ Ermitage 2009

Syrah from France - Rhone
Review Date : 10-Oct-2018
Dark, deep, near impenetrable black-red colour with a dense heart. The nose is very full, solid, densely packed and rounded with ripe dark fruits, the aromatics with great presence and volume. Mineral complexities and secondary game notes unfold. On palate, full, rich, concentrated, this has great power, a touch of alcohol too, .the fruit sweetness is matched by underlying vitality. This I a wine of massive weight and extract, with incomparable density. I just wished it had a modicum more freshness to be perfect. It will develop a long time yet. 19.5+/20 Oct 2018 RRP $N/A
