A delicate Ermitage wine by M.Chapoutier

The estate

Established since 1808 in Tain-L'Hermitage, the M. Chapoutier House is an elite reference among fine Rhône Valley wines today.

Winemaker and wine merchant, Michel Chapoutier has successfully brought this family-owned business to the very top. The wines by Maison Chapoutier are renowned by the finest connoisseurs from all around the world for their refinement and high quality. A man of many talents, Michel Chapoutier holds the world record for 100/100 scores awarded by the American critic, Robert Parker. Mathilde, Michel Chapoutier's daughter, has taken over the running of this iconic house, which has over 350 hectares of vineyards in the most prestigious appellations of the northern and southern Rhône Valley region.

The vineyard

This Ermitage Le Pavillon by M. Chapoutier is made from a plot of around 4 hectares which is unique due to its unusual geology comprising a thin layer of sediments and resting on a granitic subsoil. The grapes produced from these old vines, 65 years old on average, are renowned for their high quality.

Vinification and ageing

These old vines are harvested by hand, on the verge of over-ripeness, and provide a low yield. The grapes are 100% destemmed and then vinified in concrete vats with one or two punchings of the cap per day to ensure an optimal extraction. Maceration for 4 to 5 weeks.

Made exclusively from free-run juice, this plot-based wine is aged for 18 to 20 months in oak barrels (of which an average of 30% are new). Clarification is natural.

The blend

Syrah (100%).

Wine Advocate-Parker :
The most concentrated 2008 Ermitage is Le Pavillon (915 cases). Backward as well as elegant, it offers up scents of blueberries, blackberries, camphor, black truffles and earth. The wine is medium to full-bodied, moderately tannic and, atypically, capable of lasting 20-25+ years.
