En af de sjældne vine fra Chapoutiers Selection Parcellaire serie, der er blandt verdens mest sjældne og eftertagtede vine. “These are among the world’s greatest wines, especially the single vineyard wines, many of which will last 50 or more years.” “These wines are for true connoisseurs….. they capture the essence of a vintage and terroir” “The single vineyard offerings are as good as Rhone Valley wines can be.” - The Wine Advocate “The 2018 Ermitage le Pavillon is a plush, full-bodied beauty that combines fruity notes of blueberries with savory notes of black olives and marries them together with rich, earthy notes. Almost creamy across the mid-palate, it finishes with soft waves of velvety tannins. I expect this will firm up a bit prior to bottling, then drink well for two decades. 96-98/100” - The Wine Advocate “Suave, mineral- and spice-accented aromas of blackberry, cherry liqueur and pungent flowers show superb clarity and energetic lift. Sappy and penetrating in the mouth, displaying sharply defined black/blue fruit, violet pastille and spicecake flavors that turn livelier as the wine opens up. Finishes extremely long and minerally, with intense, spicy thrust, a repeating floral note and gently chewy tannins. 96-98/100” – Vinous "Coming all from the pure granite soils of the Bessards lieu-dit, on the western side of Hermitage, the 2018 Ermitage Le Pavillon is 100% Syrah that was all destemmed and aged 18 months in just 15% new French oak. This beauty has closed down since bottling and will need considerable bottle age, but it’s a beauty. Deep purple-hued, with a meaty, gamey bouquet of black and blue fruits, crushed rock, liquid violets, olives, and acacia flowers, this sensational wine hits the palate with full-bodied richness, a tight, backward mouthfeel, present tannins, and a great finish. As I wrote last year, this isn't for those seeking instant gratification and a solid 7-8 years of bottle age are warranted, but I suspect it will earn a triple-digit score at maturity and should have 40-50 years of longevity. 98/100" - Jeb Dunnuck “This is silky with real tannic finesse and while it doesn't have the intensity of some vintages it has beautiful balance and purity with sweet plum, violets and blueberry. 96/100” - Decanter

Côtes-du-Rhônes vinmarker følger Rhône-floden fra Vienne i nord til Avignon i syd, en næsten 200 km lang strækning. Rhône er især et rødvinsområde, og det er vigtigt at skelne mellem nord, hvor Syrah-druen er den fremtrædende, og syd hvor Grenache er mest udbredt. Côtes-du-Rhônes hvidvine er bestemt også værd at stifte bekendtskab med. De laves i nord på druerne Rousanne, Marsanne og Viognier og i syd især på Grenache Blanc, Clairette og Bourboulenc.
