Robert Parker Guide: 100/100


Rated 100/100 by Parker, the 2011 red Ermitage Pavillon is arguably one of Michel Chapoutier's most iconic cuvées. Originating from the granite soils of Les Bessards, this spectacular red sets the standard for Ermitage—aromatic, intense, enchanting. With notes of black fruits and spices, floral nuances, and supreme refinement, yet simultaneously concentrated and powerful: everything converges towards perfection here. Given another two or three decades, it will refine further and secure its legacy. Unless, of course, you give in to its allure sooner.

Michel Chapoutier stands as an undisputed star of the Rhône Valley, boasting an extraordinary catalog of wines all his own. An eminent ambassador and pioneer of biodynamic farming, driven by a vision of great wine, this instinctive winemaker enjoys global recognition; his wines consistently deliver the most refined expressions of their respective terroirs.

This is particularly true for the terroir of Hermitage, his favored land, where he crafts legendary single-vineyard cuvées using biodynamic methods. These wines represent the pinnacle of complexity and sophistication, designed for aging, and are without equal.
