M. CHAPOUTIER ERMITAGE LE PAVILLON 1993 (2)

Rhône.
2 x peeling labels

The 1993 Le Pavilion is the Hermitage of the Vintage. More austere than when I tasted it prior to bottling, it is one of the few 1993s with a sweet inner core of fruit, as well as a dense ruby/purple color, outstanding concentration and extract, and huge tannin in the finish. It is a harder style of Le Pavilion than the 1992, but it should turn out to be a 40- to 50-year wine. Last tasted December 1996. Approximately 400 cases produced per vintage. WA 93

M. CHAPOUTIER ERMITAGE LE PAVILLON 2013 (1 mag., OWC)

Rhône.
small crack in wax capsule

The star of the show in 2013 is the 2013 Ermitage le Pavillon. Coming from the west and eastern edges of the Bessards lieu-dit and aged in 30% new French oak, its sensational black/blue color is followed by the awesome bouquet of cassis, smoked earth, graphite and caramelized meats that could come from no other terroir in the world. Full-bodied, massive, dense, sexy and with a liquid rock-like character that comes out with time in the glass, it has sweet tannin and a blockbuster finish that keeps you coming back to the glass. It needs 5-6 years of cellaring and will have 30-40 years of more of ultimate longevity. December 2015 Approximately 600 cases produced per vintage. WS 96 WA 98+
