M. Chapoutier : Le Pavillon 2017

Complex and elegant, a great red wine from Ermitage

The estate

Established since 1808 in Tain-L'Hermitage, M. Chapoutier 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 parcel of approximately 4 hectares which owes its uniqueness to its atypical geology consisting of a thin layer of sediments resting on a granitic subsoil. The grapes produced from this vineyard of old vines, 65 years old on average, are renowned for their high quality.

Vinification and ageing

With a low yield, these old vines are harvested by hand, at the limit of over-ripeness. The grapes are 100% destemmed and then vinified in concrete vats with one or two punchings of the cap per day to ensure optimal extraction. Maceration for 4 to 5 weeks. Made exclusively from free-run wine, this parcel-based cuvée is aged for 18 to 20 months in oak barrels (of which an average of 30% are new). Clarification is natural.

The blend

M. Chapoutier's Pavillon 2017 is a 100% Syrah.

Wine Advocate-Parker :
Cassis and crushed stone join on the nose of the 2017 Ermitage le Pavillon. More austere than les Geffieux or le Méal, le Pavillon is rooted more firmly in granite, with crisply defined edges and firm tannins. It's impressive for sure, full-bodied, loaded with extract and almost creamy across the mid-palate, but ultimately it needs time. Give it 10 years to soften and develop a bit more charm--it has the concentrated dark fruit to carry it the distance.
