2019 Domaine JM & H Pavelot Savigny-lès-Beaune 1er Les Gravains (750ml) Pre-Arrival15 0 0 0
"As is often the case, I found the quality of the Pavelot 2019s to be very good to excellent and these are wines to consider and particularly so as they generally offer very fine price/value." - Allen Meadows (Burghound)
The Pavelot family have been cultivating vines in Savigny-lès-Beaune before the French revolution and have made some of the best wines in the village since.
"Notes of oak toast and menthol surround the moderately high-toned aromas of red and dark cherry, plum and warm earth. There is terrific intensity to the vibrant, intense and well-detailed medium weight flavors that also brim with minerality on the even more compact, austere and firmly constituted finale. The quality is excellent though I underscore that this is presently a block of stone and it would be largely pointless to open a bottle before at least 7 to 8 years have passed." Note: from a .60 ha parcel where two-thirds of the vines are more than 70+ years of age. 91-93 points / Sweet spot Outstanding - Allen Meadows (Burghound, Apr. 2021)
