pavelot 99 dominode
1999 Jean-Marc Pavelot, Savigny-lès-Beaune 1er La Dominodetry to find this wine...
The first from the case. Medium-plus cherry red – still very young looking. The nose is broad and quite dense, a little meaty, just a little moist undergrowth too – not particularly fruit-driven – though an hour in the glass gives cleaner, higher toned dark mineral notes and finally a little tobacco mixed with red berries. Fresh with intense dark fruit, very linear and quite mineral. The texture is silky and despite the linear presentation gives the impression of some nice oak upholstery – a little grainy tannin adheres to the palate. Very young with a fine future ahead.
Rebuy – Yes

    Gee – sounds like the 91 I drank in 2001. The wine really needs 10 years to come around, and in 1999 why not wait 15? Really fantastic notes.

Agree? Disagree? Anything you'd like to add?
