2009 Domaine Pavelot Savigny les Beaune (Burgundy)

Burgundy rarely offers value for money. At about $35-$40, however, this wine isn’t terrible in that regard.

This is quite a ripe, generous pinot noir, which is in line with what one might expect from the 2009 vintage in Burgundy. Flavours of cherry, plum, and a bit of earthiness. Some creamy oak. There is some nice grip with the tannins and it finishes with decent length. Not a lot of complexity here, but certainly enjoyable to drink.

Rated: 3.5 Stars
RRP: $35-$40
Drink: 2012-2015
