From Lyle Fass essentially the BEST!!! importer of German Pinot. The kicker you need to buy blind and wait six months.
But the guy picked up the best of the best.
Fantastic - forest raspberries - wild cherries - bark - elegant and balanced a stunning wine! Burgundian in style. This sings! Lookout for 2016 another good vintage as this is only available from Lyle. Also can’t go wrong with this producer any wine she makes is great. — 10 days ago
After the 2009 Narbantons disaster on thanksgiving i tried the 1er Cru Aux Gravains today - this has a touch of green - so i assume some stem inclusion. It’s better but underwhelming as well really no fruit or age character after 8 years metal undertone. 2009 was hot and it seems Pavelot has picked at the wrong time too early? My advise try the 09’s from and make cellar space if you are disappointed. — 14 days ago
I should have never listen to the burghound 😂. For what it is this wine is barely OK and i tried 2 bottles. Unimpressive when opened to the point i thought it was corked or closed. A second bottle was just as bad. Moreover just as flat the next day. Compare this to my other thanksgiving notes on Huber and Grivot - I will dumb this. Two bucks chuck is better. Will use the other bottles for cooking. — 16 days ago
Fantastic wine for the 💰. Balanced and already integrated tannins. Cherries 🍒 and cranberries. Should be absolutely stellar in 2 years or so. Light and elegant a great example of what Burgundy can be. And like with most good Burgs sold out fast! — 11 days ago
I am tasting through my Pavelots - as it seems i made a mistake stocking up on these. The 2010 Gravains is better than the 09. Dark berries, cranberries, chalky. At the moment kind of dull and i think this will not improve with time there is simply not enough fruit. This producer lost its way. — 14 days ago
This Pavelot is better than the other 5 which i tasted today. Dark red - subdued cherry and hint of chassis. Better balanced than all the other 09’s and 10’s. i tried. Tart - plenty of tannins - Needs more time my guess is 5 years. For some reasons his wines do not ring a bell 🛎 for me they lack uniqueness. — 14 days ago
The first of the Pavelots i tasted which has some substance - may be because of the age of the vines in La Dominode? This has tart 🍒, forest 🌳 floor and needs more time in the bottle. Pavelot is inconsistent and I DO NOT advise to buy and cellar his wines blind without tasting them first - this is not a Mark Haisma or Jadot. — 14 days ago
Poor vintage but good wine. Drink now with hours of decanting. Savigny is a lesser village in burgundy and it shows. Yes you pay less but also get less. Dark cherry quite acidic - chalky - tough. Over all just OK as i do not believe this will gain complexity with more time in the bottle. Still i like this one. Even days later this is a good bottle unlike Pavelot. — 16 days ago
Burgundian Grand Cru from Germany decant 24h’s. Made by the late Bernhard Huber who died unfortunately of cancer much too early. Dark and big 🍷. Almost too highly extracted for my taste. Cassis, bark, mushrooms 🍄, dark berries - blackberry/elderberry blend! Direct from the Winery not available in the USA 😳. Very highly recommended! Visit the winery if you can it’s close to Freiburg in Baden the son is now running the show. — 16 days ago
