2015 Domaine Jean-Marc & Huighes Pavelot Savigny-les-Beaune Rouge (Pre-Arrival)

SKU #1327222 87-90 points Allen Meadows - Burghound

 A notably ripe nose combines notes of plum, violet, earth and a hint spice. There is both good energy and delineation to the polished, delicious and relatively refined middle weight flavors that possess fine depth and sneaky good length. This is sufficiently forward that it should drink well young.  (4/2017)

90 points John Gilman

 The 2015 Savigny villages had been assembled into tank prior to my visit, in anticipation of bottling early in the new year. This too is ripe and generous in personality, but shows a bit more structure right now than the generous Chorey. The bouquet delivers a fine blend of red and black cherries, Savigny spice tones, dark soil, a nice touch of violets and a topnote of dark chocolate. On the palate the wine is full-bodied, focused and deep at the core, with a quite black fruity personality this year, ripe tannins and very good length and grip on the primary finish. This will need a couple of years in the cellar to blossom, but it will come forward fairly briskly for this cuvée and will be very tasty. (Drink between 2018-2040)  (12/2016)

88-90 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate

 The 2015 Savigny les Beaune Village comes from around 15 different parcels, mostly but not entirely from the flatter areas of the appellation. It has an attractive bouquet of black plum and raspberry on the nose, touches of wild hedgerow emerging with time. The palate is medium-bodied with fine tannin, a mixture of red and black fruit with a subtle chalky texture lending edginess on the finish, plus a dash of black pepper on the aftertaste. It should give plenty of drinking pleasure over the next 3-5 years.(NM)  (12/2016)


 Good medium red. Aromas and flavors of black cherry, licorice and herbs. A bit simple but still rather youthfully imploded for village wine, finishing with a faint bitter edge. (But this struck me as riper than a négociant Chorey-lès-Beaune, bottled in September, which showed a distinctly greener herbal element and rather tart finish.)(ST)  (1/2017)

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.
