Jean-Marc Pavelot Savigny-lès-Beaune, 2017

This is a superb offering from this great Domaine – considered by most critics to be the best producer in Savigny-lès-Beaune.

The Pavelots have been cultivating vines in the village of Savigny-lès-Beaune since the French revolution, but it was Jean-Marc’s father who began domaine bottling after returning from the war. Jean-Marc really put the domaine on the map in the 1980s and assisted by his son, Hugues, has been quietly producing excellent wines ever since.

Hugues Pavelot noted that 2017 "gave us very good yields, in fact so much so that I decided to drop some fruit in certain parcels as too much is too much because it doesn't get sufficiently ripe to make the style of wine we're known for. I began picking the reds on the 5th of September. The fruit was about as clean as I have seen it with very good maturity levels as well. When the fruit is so clean and ripe it makes for very easy vinifications and that was the case in 2017. As to the wines, I would describe them as seductive and generous and this is even true for the entry level wines."  I found the quality of the Pavelot 2017s to be back at the level I have come to expect and these are wines to consider and particularly so as they generally offer very fine price/value.
