RATINGS

91Wine Spectator

...black cherry, iron and underbrush flavors. Pointed tannins line the finish, yet overall, there is balance. Finishes with sweet fruit.

90James Suckling

The southerly clay soils have delivered a wine that carries freshness and some plush tannins, which results in a polished, balanced and chiseled expression. Good weight. Succulent red cherries and plums to close.

89-91The Wine Advocate

...red cherry, raspberry preserve and bergamot scents on the well-defined nose. The palate is well balanced with sappy red berry fruit, well-judged acidity, then a slightly chalky texture on the edgy finish.

16Jancis Robinson

Ripe, fresh cherries on the nose, just veering to dried fruit but not overripe. Firm, dry and a little chewy with just enough fruit at the core. Very Pommard in structure but with riper fruit than the norm. The components seem a little apart on the finish.

PRODUCER

Albert Bichot Domaine du Pavillon

Domaine du Pavillon is a 43-acre estate in Pommard. Since 1993 it has been owned by Maison Albert Bichot, one of Beaune’s largest and most important negociants. Albert Bichot owns four domaines in Burgundy for a total of more than 250 acres of vineyards, and the maison is today run by Alberic Bichot, the sixth generation of the founding family. Maison Albert Bichot has won numerous international awards for winemaking. Domaine du Pavillon produces Grand Crus, Premier Crus and village wines.

REGION

France, Burgundy, Côte d'Or, Côte de Beaune, Pommard

Pommard is a relatively large appellation of 1,655 vineyard acres just a few miles south of Beaune. Though it has no Grands Crus, Pommard’s 28 Premiers Crus are generally well regarded. The appellation produces only red wine, and wine writers often note that despite Pommard’s proximity to both Beaune and Volnay, its wines are very different from the Pinot Noirs produced in neighboring appellations. Robert M. Parker Jr. wrote that “The top Pommards are full-bodied, chunky, muscular, fleshy wines that impress one more for their power and expansive, mouth filling texture than for pure finesse.” The most famous Premiers Crus are Les Epenots and Les Rugiens.

TYPE

Red Wine, Pinot Noir, AOC (AC)

This red wine is relatively light and can pair with a wide variety of foods. The grape prefers cooler climates and the wine is most often associated with Burgundy, Champagne and the U.S. west coast. Regional differences make it nearly as fickle as it is flexible.
