(97-99) Inky ruby-colored, the 2016 Ermitage Le Pavillon comes all from the Bessards lieu-dit, which is just about the biggest, baddest terroir in the world for Syrah. Crazy good notes of cassis, crushed violets, pepper and beef blood, with a liqueur of rocks like minerality, all flow to a massive, yet sensationally polished and elegant red that's going to knock your socks off with 4-5 years of bottle age.

(WA96-98 points) A 30-year wine, the 2016 Ermitage le Pavillon is inky in color, displays the essence of crushed rock on the nose, offers flavors of dark chocolate, espresso and scorched meat on the palate and lingers... (WA96-98 points) A 30-year wine, the 2016 Ermitage le Pavillon is inky in color, displays the essence of crushed rock on the nose, offers flavors of dark chocolate, espresso and scorched meat on the palate and lingers forever on the finish. This full-bodied, intensely concentrated and tannic wine represents the essence of Les Bessards. Looking at my notes, the rating may well prove to be conservative. - Joe Czerwinski

Vinous, June 2018
(VN 95-97 points) Full purple. Heady, spice- and mineral-accented black and blue fruit, exotic spice, olive and incense aromas show superb clarity and pick up hints of woodsmoke, mocha and candied licorice with aeration... (VN 95-97 points) Full purple. Heady, spice- and mineral-accented black and blue fruit, exotic spice, olive and incense aromas show superb clarity and pick up hints of woodsmoke, mocha and candied licorice with aeration. Sweet, seamless and penetrating on the palate, offering intense boysenberry, cherry liqueur, spicecake and cola flavors and a touch of salty olive paste. Deepens steadily on the strikingly persistent finish, which features polished tannins and resonating floral and blue fruit qualities. -- Josh Raynolds
