Parker : 100 / 100
Wine Advocate-Parker :
Still a youngster, the blockbuster 1995 Ermitage le Pavillon is a quintessential Hermitage in every way. Full-bodied, powerful, thick and unctuous, with tons of smoky, black, black fruits, tar, saddle leather and peppery herbs, this perfect wine is massively concentrated, rich and stacked, with masses of ripe tannin hiding under its still lively and fresh fruit. And while it's a brilliant drink today, it's still not yet fully mature. This tour de Force beauty will see its 50th birthday in fine form!
