The biggest production cuvee, the 2005 Ermitage Le Pavillon (1,067 cases in this vintage) has a dense purple color, the clasic acacia flower, graphite-based, smoky creme de cassis nose with a tremendous intensity and a full-bodied power and richness that is awesome. These are monumental wines, and when you think that this wine, much like most of its siblings, is made from yields of 12-18 hectoliters per hectare, the explanation for its concentration and extraordinary expression of terroir is obvious.

Drink 2010 - 2025

Very focused, with grippy, but streamlined tannins carrying dark currant, plum, coffee, mocha and mineral notes through a long finish. Zesty, wild berry and briar patch-filled finish. Should flesh out nicely in the cellar, as there is some real serious grip here. Best from 2010 through 2025.
