    November 9, 2023 - Very Good+
    This was a bit muted throughout, but I liked it quite a bit anyway. Good with dinner. No notes, but disappointing against expectations. I don't think this has room to grow from here, so drink up. If you just have it casually with dinner, I think you'll be satisfied.

    Note: My 2017 TN was more favorable, another indication that this has peaked.

    October 7, 2023 - Rather disappointing for the usually exuberant style of Pavelot. The nose was restrained and what was there indicated a hint of darkish cherry, unresolved oak, and a bit of sous bois. Medium bodied in style but with a heap of acid still showing. The whole package just seems disjointed and I doubt there is enough fruit to soften out the somewhat aggressive nature over time. Had this with braised skirt steak, caramelize shallots, and red wine/demi-glace reduction along with pommes frittes. (Lyon bistro style). This wine isn't bad and was fit for the simple dinner, but just not a particularly enjoyable or memorable Pavelot.

    September 24, 2023 - Enjoyable Burgundy. Somewhat simple. Well resolved red fruit and tannins. Minerality on the nose. Probably near then end of its drinking window.

    March 5, 2021 - Pop and pour, excellent from the start. Lovely perfume with soft violets and loads of red fruit, together with earth and some rustic brambly notes. On the palate: good acidity, still rather rustic in style with dense, but not overwhelming tannin. Great fruit and earth on the palate as well. Very nice!

    January 19, 2021 - Fairly reticent to start, opens up. Crunchy black raspberry fruit, espresso, coffee, some herbal notes. No hurry here. B+
