International Wine Cellar Author: Stephen Tanzer Issue: Issue 82

Saturated ruby. Deep aromas of cassis, blueberry, game, woodsmoke and iron. Thick, powerful and gamey in the mouth; has the texture and thickness not yet shown by Chapoutier's '96 Hermitage Méal. Primal dark berry and violet notes. Explosive fruit on the very long aftertaste, which features huge, chewy tannins. Neither particularly sauvage nor especially austere. Should be a beauty with seven or eight years of bottle aging. A great performance for the vintage.

Tiny yields.Very dark blackish crimson. Sweet and the only wine here that seems at all marked by oak. Even though they apparently use only 50% new oak. Treacle toffee nose though bone dry. Very complete and evolved - much more developed than the Chave 1996. Slightly dry tannins on the finish. Not quite as assured as later vintages. But very sweet and smooth and polished. If you were very cruel and crude you might call this slightly 'American'.

Wine Advocate Author: Robert Parker Issue: 121

The 1996 Hermitage Le Pavillon needs at least a decade of cellaring. The wine possesses a saturated black/purple color, in addition to fabulously sweet aromas of blackberries, framboise, blueberries, violets, roasted herbs, and meats. Massively concentrated and full-bodied, with staggering levels of extract, this wine is super pure, with high tannin, good but not intrusive acidity, and a 45-second finish. This is one of the superstars of the vintage in France! Importer: Paterno Imports, Lake Bluff, IL; tel. (847) 604-8900

Wine Spectator Author: Per-Henrik Mansson

What a silky wine. Lush and ripe, with elegance, it coats the palate with the finest, most velvety tannins, providing loads of pleasure with its mocha, plum, wild berry, grilled meat flavors. Full-bodied, with excellent intensity on the smooth, lingering finish. Delicious.

This is looking promising but needs time. Deep red hue,tannins.Too harsh now but once the tannins mellowed this can be great. Not really enjoyable now. Rating it 90 but with significant improvment potential

Drank with Pum and Kamon at the Pullman. Was a bit tight upon opening, but after about 2 hours in the decanter opened beautifully. Very full bodied, rich and dense without sweetness. Dark cherry essence lingered for ages on finish. Loved this.
