2008. Dark, graceful fruit. Lovely.

Dark rubi robe, nose of spices and dark berries. Very good medium length mouth with good balance and concentration. Its better than the vintage says. And in no rush to drink. Its a really good bottle !

Savory but lacking fruit

I have a 50/50 experience with this producer. Sometimes delicious, sometimes bretty and nasty. This was one of the happy experiences. Unusually delicate for Pavelot. Beautiful rose petals and light spice

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.

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.

You never know which Pavelot is going to show up. The perfumed, airy and structure version, or the gloppy Brett bomb. Thankfully this was the good one.

Smells deliciously old. Great balance with body, flavor and nose. RP93.

$57 from the local food wine shop. Solid burgundy and could age a few more years. Not particularly complex though.

Chestnut nose. I get some green in the glass strange for a 2009 a ripe vintage but his first flavor profile vanishes - now dark cherry, chalky and green tea? solid burgundy! Alas does not have a special twist to it. I think I could keep this another year or two but this is at its peak now. I think I will drink this up.
