Domaine du Pavillon Beaune 1er Cru 'Clos des Mouches' blanc
A hidden gem, overlooking Pommard, the vineyard is another of Beaune’s Grand Cru contenders and certainly remains under-priced for the quality of wines it produces.
35% new oak contributes to the honesysuckle richness but does not impact on the lovely purity, and length of the fruit. The depth really impresses and show it’s not just Drouhin who can make great wines on this site. Succulent and juicy but refined, showing both breeding and vibrancy. Ripe fresh and spiced baked apple fruit abounds on the palate and salinity lingers on the finish. This is really delicious.
Always a super reliable, benchmark domaine, and well-priced, Clos Frantin’s 2017s continue a good run of form. We were also really impressed by a number of the Maison’s wines this year which have closed the gap with it’s flagship domaine whilst offering tremendous value. As Neal martin comments, Bichot can make “really quite delicious, complex wines that often surprise people in blind tastings when not swayed by the label.” We feel our selections, from village wines to the most senior Grand Crus, all show the precision, typicity and expressive, vibrant, phenolically mature fruit that make a case or two essential purchases for all Burgundy lovers.
