TASTING NOTES: Vinous 96 points
Bright purple. Assertive, highly complex aromas of black and blue fruit liqueur, licorice candy and potpourri carry an exotic spice overtone. Stains the palate with concentrated blueberry, cassis and cola flavors, while a suave violet pastille nuance builds steadily with air. Velvety tannins shape a strikingly long, chewy, mineral and spice tinged finish that shows outstanding power and energy.April/2018

Wine Advocate 99 points Surely a 100 point wine in nearly any other context, the 2015 Ermitage le Pavillon is a terrific wine. Full bodied and intense, it offers tremendous notes of crushed stone, mocha and ripe plum given shape and texture by powerful yet ripe tannins. The finish is nearly endless, oozing with essence of granite and balanced by bright acids. Wow..December/2017

Jeb Dunnuck 100 points Another perfect wine, the 2015 Ermitage Le Pavillon comes from the Bessards lieu dit on Hermitage, which is pure granite soils. I've said it before, but will say it again, this is unquestionably the finest, most singular vineyard for Syrah in the world. Cassis, graphite, smoked herbs, liquid rocks and violet aromas give way to a huge, concentrated, opulent and off the charts beauty that just hints at its ultimate potential. I wouldn't think about opening bottles for at least a decade, after which it will keep for 4 5 decades..January/2018
