It almost defies description because of its ethereal concentration and off-the-charts extract levels. This is not for the faint of heart or those who lack patience as it will require 10-15 years of bottle age and as previously stated will keep for 50 or more. There are just over 1000 cases of the 2010 Le Pavillon another perfect wine in the constellation of profound wines produced by Michel Chapoutier. -Robert Parker

Because of the perfect level of ripeness, the wine has both sweetness and lift, length and vibrancy. But patience is the name of the game here. Having recently tasted 89, 90 & 91, which are are still young, this requites at least 20 or or more years to come around.

A lovely alder note echoes in the background. Best from 2018 through 2028. 43 cases imported. — JM

Heady, exotically perfumed aromas of ripe dark berries, candied flowers, Indian spices and cracked pepper. Stains the palate with intense blackberry and boysenberry flavors, picking up a sweet violet pastille note with aeration. Dense but lively and strikingly precise given its concentration. Shows superb finishing energy and focus, closing with amazing length and slow-building, harmonious tannins. This wine is built for the long haul; I wouldn't touch it for at least another decade. -- Josh Raynolds
