Tasting Notes

The 1998 Ermitage Le Pavillon flirts with perfection - again. Revealing a striking bouquet of violets, blackberries, smoke, licorice, and minerals, it is luxuriously rich, full-bodied, and layered on the palate. It is another wine with a finish that lasts beyond a minute. Remarkably, yields were a mere 10 hectolitres per hectare.There is plenty of tannin in the finish, but it is ripe and well-integrated. Anticipated maturity: 2010-2050.

Score: 98+Robert Parker, Wine Advocate (133), February 2001
