Tasting Notes

This wine comes from ¿lieu-dit¿ Les Bessards, a fine layer of sediment lying on granite slopes. Its 65 year old vines are positioned at a lower altitude band of the Hermitage hill, at approximately 130 metres, above the ruins of a stone house that gives it its name. With tiny yields (20 hl/ha), this is perhaps the most complex of the various Ermitage sélections. Le Pavillon is characterised by great length on the palate, and liquorice and tobacco aromas. Magnums available.
