2019 Domaine JM & H Pavelot Savigny-lès-Beaune 1er La Dominode (750ml) Pre-Arrival15 0 0 14
"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.
"A perfumed, ripe and cool nose features notes of red currant, black raspberry, violet and a hint of sandalwood. There is very fine mid-palate density with an abundance of sappy dry extract to the velvety and mouth coating flavors that flash good minerality on the powerful, balanced and hugely long finish. This is marvelous but it's also a buy and forget you own it wine." Note: two-thirds of the vines are between 70 and 80 years of age and the remaining vines are approximately 20+ years old. 92-94 points / Sweet spot Outstanding - Allen Meadows (Burghound, Apr. 2021)
