2015 Hughes Pavelot Chorey-Les-Beaune "Les Beaumonts" Rouge (Pre-Arrival)

SKU #1323743 Allen Meadows - Burghound

 A ripe and brooding nose is composed by notes of mostly dark berries and prominent earth characters. There is good energy to the very rounded and suave yet solidly intense middle weight flavors that possess fine depth and length on the lightly structured finish. This should drink well young but a bit of bottle age should help to develop a bit more complexity.  (4/2017)

John Gilman

 The Chorey “les Beaumonts” is produced from grapes that Monsieur Pavelot buys, but he is responsible for the harvesting in this parcel. This had already been bottled in September. The wine is under thirteen percent octane in 2015, but a ripe and generous wine that recalls 2009 in its aromatic blend of black cherries, chocolate, woodsmoke, a touch of red currant and a very good base of soil. On the palate the wine is deep, full-bodied, ripe and long, with good focus and backend bounce, modest tannins and very good length and grip on the finish. Good juice that will drink with generosity from the outset. 2016-2030+.  (1/2017)

K&L Notes

Hugues Pavelot, of Domaine Jean-Marc & Hugues Pavelot (see immediately below), started a small négociant operation. The idea is to buy in fruit at fair prices when opportunities present themselves and he knows both the vigneron and the specific parcel of vines. He notes that he will make the wines in exactly the same fashion as he does those of the domaine. The wines will be distributed by the same importers that represent the domaine; for details on the 2015 vintage, please see the domaine write-up.-Burghound

Pinot Noir

- One of France's most legendary grapes and the grape that earned Burgundy its reputation. The parent of varietals like Pinot Gris/Grigio and Pinot Blanc, Pinot Noir is blue to violet to indigo in color with relatively thin skins, and it is said to have been cultivated in France for more than 2,000 years. At its best, Pinot Noir creates elegant wines that are filled with primary red fruit aromas and flavors while young, revealing with an array of secondary characteristics like earth, smoke, violet, truffle and game with age. The varietal is also known, perhaps better than any, for its ability to translate terroir, or a sense of place. While the best Pinot Noir still comes from Burgundy, it is being produced with increasing success in cooler climates around the world. In France, it is part of the trifecta of grapes that can go into Champagne, and it is also grown in Alsace, Irancy, Jura, Savoie, Lorraine and Sancerre. Outside of France it is produced under the names Pinot Nero and Blauburgunder in Italy's mountainous regions, as Spätburgunder in Germany and as Blauburgunder in Austria. In the US, Pinot Noir has found suitable growing conditions in the cooler parts of California, including Carneros, the Russian River Valley, the Anderson Valley, the Sonoma Coast, Monterey County, the Santa Lucia Highlands and Santa Barbara County, as well as in Oregon's Willamette Valley. In recent years, New Zealand has demonstrated its ability to interpret this hard-to-grow varietal, with successful bottlings coming from careful and attentive growers in Central Otago, Martinborough and Canterbury. Chile is also an up-and-coming region for Pinot Noir, creating fresh, fruit-forward, early-drinking and affordable Pinots from the coastal Casablanca Valley and the Limari Valley.


- When it comes to wine, France stands alone. No other country can beat it in terms of quality and diversity. And while many of its Region, Bordeaux, Burgundy and Champagne most obviously, produce wine as rare, as sought-after and nearly as expensive as gold, there are just as many obscurities and values to be had from little known appellations throughout the country. To learn everything there is to know about French wine would take a lifetime. To understand and appreciate French wine, one only has to begin tasting them.


- The province of eastern France, famous for its red wines produced from Pinot Noir and its whites produced from Chardonnay. (Small of amounts of Gamay and Aligoté are still grown, although these have to be labeled differently.) The most famous part of the region is known as the Côte d'Or (the Golden Slope). It is divided into the Côte de Beaune, south of the town of Beaune (famous principally for its whites), and the Côte de Nuits, North of Beaune (home of the most famous reds). In addition, the Côte Chalonnaise and the Mâconnais are important wine growing regions, although historically a clear level (or more) below the Côte d'Or. Also include by some are the regions of Chablis and Auxerrois, farther north.
