This wine is made from 100% Syrah. The age of the vines (65 years on average) guarantees a very high quality production. This plot has an area of approximatively 4 hectares and has a particular geology. The soil is made up with sediments on a fine layer being on a granitic subsoil. The grapes ferment in concrete tanks. From one to two daily treadings ensures a good extraction. The temperature of fermentation does not exceed 32°C. Maceration lasts between 4 and 5 weeks, to obtain a polymerization of tannins and only the free-run wine is used for this single vineyard. The wine is matured in oak casks (with a 30% average proportion of new ones) between 18 and 20 months. The clarification is natural.

Information About Chapoutier
'An Estate that has nurtured its vineyards with the greatest respect for natural balance and terroir since 1808.'
 
The Chapoutier family can trace their history in the Rhône region back to 1808, but it was in 1879 that Polydor Chapoutier bought his first vineyards and began making wine. In the mid-20th century Max Chapoutier led the business, until his retirement in 1977, after which his sons Michel Chapoutier and Marc Chapoutier took his place.
 
It was Michel Chapoutier's skills that sparked the rise of Maison Chapoutier. His energy, vision and need to express terroir has been the driving force behind the maison's success. Now with wines produced in several appellations of the Rhone and  Rousillon regions, Alsace and also Austalia,  Michel Chapoutier is one of the most revered wine makers in the world and has received global recognition for the quality of his works.

Tasting Date : 01 February 2011
The most concentrated 2008 Ermitage is Le Pavillon (915 cases). Backward as well as elegant, it offers up scents of blueberries, blackberries, camphor, black truffles and earth. The wine is medium to full-bodied, moderately tannic and, atypically, capable of lasting 20-25+ years.
