Robert Parker : 98-100/100


From 4 hectares of very special soil with a granite subsoil, the 2020 red Le Pavillon Ermitage is a 100% Syrah harvested at the limit of over-ripeness and aged in oak barrels with one-third new wood, offering the quintessence of its terroir. Notes of warm stone, mocha, and black fruits, bonded in an extremely rich texture with ripe tannins, profile a very great wine, an "essence of granite" of superb balance, which is also very intense, deep, and of rare elegance. A great wine of time and emotion, which will outperform its peers and offer superior aging potential. Impressive! Rated 98-100/100 by Parker.


Hand harvested, 100% de-stemmed and vinified in concrete vats, aged from 12 to 18 months in oak barrels, 30% of which are new.

Organic and Biodynamic wine, certified by Demeter.


Bright red, of good intensity.


Aromas of black fruits underlined by notes of mocha and hot pebbles.


Deep and silky at the same time, with beautiful ripe flavors of fruit, let yourself be charmed by this high-class wine, with a beautiful balance and a rich and intense texture.


Serve between 16 and 18°C.

Food and wine pairing:

Rib of beef with Bordeaux sauce, venison with Grand Veneur sauce, hare à la Royale or jugged hare.

Cellar aging:

From now until 2045.
