Tasting Notes

Michel Chapoutier, an unconventional visionary, challenging tradition and passionately embracing biodynamics. Dedicated to expressing the soil's essence, his philosophy is deeply rooted in the land. Le Pavillon 2014 reveals a deep garnet red hue, illuminated by hints of purple. The nose is a captivating blend of tarry and smoky essences, weaving in notes of raspberry, blackberry, walnut, and liquorice. On tasting, its complexity unfurls with a robust start, leading into a velvety, balanced palate that lingers with hints of liquorice, tobacco, and cocoa. Depending on the vintage, its majestic evolution can span anywhere from 30 to an impressive 75 years.

Reviews and Accolades

AWARDS & ACCOLADES

James Suckling

Made from 65 year old vines on the granitic Bessards section of Hermitage. Some very assertive red plum, red nectarine and orange zest. There is a wealth of spice and dark mineral-flecked interest. The palate is extremely supple and smooth with attractive, fine-cut tannins. A long, plush and very polished dark plum stone finish.

Robert Parker

The 2014 Ermitage le Pavillon is another wine from this team that defies the vintage. Full-bodied, concentrated, impeccably balanced and seamless, with classic notes of crushed rocks, graphite, cassis and blackcurrants, it hits the palate with no hard edges, has a great mid-palate and possesses sweet tannin. Michel commented that this wine reminded him of the 1982, and while it offers pleasure even today, it won’t hit maturity for another decade.

M.Chapoutier

Michel Chapoutier is an emblematic figure in the world of wine, born into a long lineage of vine-growers, the Chapoutier family has been rooted in the Rhône region since 1808. Michel took over the family business, Maison M. Chapoutier, in 1990, bringing with him a revitalized approach and a deep respect for terroir and biodynamic viticulture with the entire estate being certified, a rarity for an estate of its size. His philosophy is founded on the belief that a wine should express the place from which it originates, the "terroir". This approach involves minimal intervention in both the vineyard and the winery, ensuring the wines remain true reflections of their origin. Throughout his career, Michel Chapoutier's unyielding passion, combined with his pioneering approach, has earned his wines a plethora of accolades. Today, Maison M. Chapoutier remains a beacon of the Rhône Valley, with Michel at its helm, continually pushing the boundaries of winemaking and ensuring each bottle tells the story of its terroir.
