It is only a matter of time before Domaine Pavelot, familiar and craftsman in its structure, begins to transit among Burgundy connoisseurs. The seventh generation, Luc & Lise, is responsible for the evolution of this surprising domaine at Pernand-Vergelesses, which produces whites and reds with equal capacity to move us. The inspiration to achieve excellence was also fueled by experiences outside Burgundy: Luc worked in California, at Navarro Vineyards, and Lise at the spectacular Domaine Dagueneau, in the Loire.
0.77 hectares of 35-year-old Pinot Noir vines. Ile des Vergelesses is the most prestigious Premier Cru in the village, it is located on the middle of the slope, facing east, with a luminosity from the first rays of morning until the fading rays of sunset. Clay deposits in small amounts, always rich in limestone accompanied by a high level of iron, which explains the reddish hue. The coarse sandy deposits that we find here are essential for illuminating the soil and optimizing water circulation. Grapes harvested by hand and fermented in concrete tanks with indigenous yeasts. Elevage of 10 months in oak barrels, 15% new, and a small part in stainless steel. Élevage finishes in stainless steel for 6 months.
