Ermitage le Pavillon Chapoutier Premier 2008

Winemaker's Notes:

"...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...93" WA 02/11 "Glass-staining ruby. Deeper and more serious than the preceding wines, displaying dark berry and cherry pit aromas and notes of licorice and black tea. Uncommonly rich but backward for the vintage, offering powerful flavors of bitter cherry and licorice pastille, with dusty tannins adding grip. No way I'd have guessed that this was from 2008...89-91" IWC 01/10

M. Chapoutier:
The name CHAPOUTIER is present in the Rhône Valley since 1808. In 1879, the distant ancestor Polydor CHAPOUTIER was the first to begin to buy vines, thus moving from the status of wine-grower of an estate to that of a viticulturist, a wine producer and a businessman. The pioneering spirit was already present in the family.
