One of the best addresses in Savigny Les Beaune, we love the wines from Jean-Marc Pavelot for their classic, traditional, and vineyard-driven style that show refinement and aren't overly rustic. We have the current release for the flagship Cuvee from the Domaine, La Dominode, which is a fantastic bottle this vintage once again. Sourced from vines up to 80 years old, this has been the bar-setting bottle in Savigny for decades and is Pavelot's best wine in 2020. A Big note below, we have the first bottles available for this standout Cuvee in the US and at lower pricing than the 2019s currently. For fans of Pavelot, or those looking for a good buy for 2020 premier cru red Burgundy, this is one of the best.
John Gilman 93 pts! "The 2020 la Dominode from Monsieur Pavelot is an excellent wine in the making. The bouquet is pure and precise, offering up notes of cassis, dark berries, coffee bean, bonfire, a complex base of dark soil tones, a touch of currant leaf and a discreet framing of vanillin oak. On the palate the wine is full, focused and shows off excellent depth in the mid-palate, with ripe, seamless tannins, fine balance and grip and a long, sappy and complex finish. This is lovely. "
