Made from Syrah grapes. The age of the vines (90-100 years) guarantees a very high quality production. Grapes are hand-harvested to the limit of over-maturity. Due to their age, these vines give low yields. This plot has an area of approximatively 4 ha. It has given its name to this plot selection and has a particular geology. This soil is made up with sediments on a fine layer being on a granitic subsoil. Totally destemmed, the grapes ferment in concrete tanks. From one to two daily treading's ensure a good extraction. The temperature of fermentation does not exceed 32°C. Maceration lasts between 4 and 5 weeks, to obtain a polymerization of tannins. Only the free-run wine is used for this single vineyard. The wine is matured in oak casks (with a 30% average proportion of new ones) between 18 and 20 months. The clarification is natural.  This wine matches very well with beef, game and all cheeses.

"Even better and a prodigious effort that hits all my sweet spots, the 2011 Ermitage Le Pavillon comes from one of the top terroirs on Hermitage hill, the granite soils of the Les Bessards lieu-dit. Spectacularly perfumed, with raspberry, blackberry, licorice, toasted spices and assorted floral nuances, this full-bodied effort has massive depth and richness, no hard edges and masses of finely polished tannin that emerge on and frame the finish. It will be approachable at an earlier age than either the 2009 or 2010, yet should nevertheless have 2-3 decades of ultimate longevity." 100/100 Jeb Dunnuck robertparker.com
