Ermitage Le Pavillon, Maison M. Chapoutier 2021

Tasting Notes

In comparison to the more expansive Le Méal, the 2021 Ermitage Le Pavillon is deeper and more concentrated, with more edge to its tannins as well as medium to full-bodied richness and depth on the palate. Coming all from the granite soils of the Bessards lieu-dit, its deep purple hue is followed by textbook notes of pure cassis, cracked pepper, iron, and burning embers. I don't think any of the 2021s will demand extended cellaring, but this will require at least 3-5 years. It's a brilliant Hermitage.
