“It was given to us in a wine tasting stand of red.
Dark red tone and furthermore rather opaque. Dominating scent of red currant. Light wine, more than expected.
The M. Chapoutier Le Pavillon Ermitage Magnum is the ideal wine to pair it with wild boar sausages.”
“Members of the Chapoutier family have been working in the Rhône valley since 1808. A distant ancestor, Polydor Chapoutier, was the first to buy vines there, shifting from being a simple grape grower to making and trading his own wine. The pioneering spirit was already part of the family tradition. Michel, now in his forties, manages an exceptional Estate, a land rich in history and tradition. Passionately interested in expressing the character of the soil, Michel has found the means to give free rein to his convictions. A new era for the winery, welcoming changes that link traditions of the past with Michel's daring convictions. A matter of time. Much as with every natural element, what matters is weather and earth, roots, vines and fruit. This is the basis for all the diversity and generosity of Maison M. Chapoutier.”
“We had it with a deer stew. Great for romantic evenings.
The reddish brown edges were not very nice. Definitely the wrong colour, although it was an acceptable wine. Chocolate aromas. A very light taste.”
“I like to surprise my family with this wine.
Has a very cheerful colour. Concentrated aroma of red fruit jam. It predominated roasted flavours.
The M. Chapoutier Le Pavillon Ermitage was far better than the food.”
“We paired it with meat but I would have prefered to pair it with another dish. Me and my friends always order this wine a for dinner.
Red Bordeaux tone. Surprising the smell of strawberries of this M. Chapoutier. Voluptuous in the mouth.”
