Chapoutier's Ermitage Le Pavillon 2010 is a sublime northern Rhône – rated 100 points by Robert Parker! Chapoutier is a legend of the northern Rhône, consistently producing one of the finest Hermitages. The 2010 vintage is a wine for the cellar.

Chapoutier is a legend of the northern Rhône, consistently producing one of the finest Hermitages. Chapoutier was established in 1808 by Polydor Chapoutier and has been passed from father to son ever since. The brothers, Michel and Marc Chapoutier, inherited the estate in 1977 and have transformed a rather lacklustre affair into one of the true greats of the Rhône – transforming both the business and the cellars.

“Tasting like the concentrated blood from an aged and grilled strip steak, the 2010 Ermitage Le Pavillon boasts a black/purple color along with creme de cassis, camphor, pen ink, white flower and lead pencil shaving characteristics in its massive, full-bodied personality. It almost defies description because of its ethereal concentration and off-the-charts extract levels. This is not for the faint of heart, or those who lack patience, as it will require 10-15 years of bottle age, and, as previously stated, will keep for 50 or more. There are just over 1,000 cases of the 2010 Le Pavillon, another perfect wine in the constellation of profound wines produced by Michel Chapoutier.”Robert Parker
