(RP92-94 points) Made in a lighter style but still a full-bodied powerful wine the dark purple-hued 2007 Ermitage Le Pavillon reveals aromas of creme de cassis black truffles cold steel and crushed rocks. Dense and tannic with good acidity resounding richness and a substantial finish it is a top-notch effort that should evolve for three decades. - Robert Parker

Shows the zesty loganberry raspberry and boysenberry fruit of the vintage with added depth and flesh while black tea pastis and briar notes fill in on the nicely grippy finish. There's impressive depth all the way... Shows the zesty loganberry raspberry and boysenberry fruit of the vintage with added depth and flesh while black tea pastis and briar notes fill in on the nicely grippy finish. There's impressive depth all the way through. Drink now through 2016. 907 cases made. -JM

Opaque ruby. Aromas of boysenberry blueberry pipe tobacco smoky spices and olive. Very rich but surprisingly energetic offering sweet dark berry compote flavors and exotic floral and tobacco notes. The spiciness returns... Opaque ruby. Aromas of boysenberry blueberry pipe tobacco smoky spices and olive. Very rich but surprisingly energetic offering sweet dark berry compote flavors and exotic floral and tobacco notes. The spiciness returns on the finish which is sappy impressively focused and extremely long. This has opened up significantly since bottling and looks very promising.

Lacking the delineation of the Le Meal. The palate is extremely sweet and ripe with notes of red cherries, cassis and redcurrant. It just lacks the natural harmony of the other Ermitages but perhaps it will.
