An extremely ripe nose stops short of being jammy though there is a whiff of prune. Otherwise there is excellent energy to the fresh, sleek and tautly muscular flavors that are dense, powerful and very serious plus they deliver superb depth and length on the slightly warm finish. This is a wine that has impressive underlying material but the nose concerns me and thus it's hard to project how this will fare with age as it risks becoming heavy. That said, there are enough positive attributes present that my predicted range offers the benefit of the doubt.
Dark ruby-red. Pungent scents of blackberry, violet and licorice pastille. Dense, juicy and youthfully imploded, with its medicinal black cherry and licorice flavors showing a strong salty character and little easy sweetness. This very backward Dominode finishes with a solid spine of acids and tannins and a distinctly chewy impression of solidity.(ST)
The 2015 Savigny-lès-Beaune 1er Cru Les Dominodes is cut from the same cloth as the Aux Gravains, albeit with more floral scents and more red fruit. It is just as beautifully defined and seductive though. The palate is medium-bodied with silky smooth tannin, superb mineralité, immense cohesion and energy that spills over on the chalky-textured finish. This is (yet another) outstanding 2015 from Domaine Pavelot who frankly has done little wrong this vintage.(NM)
The 2015 Domaine Pavelot Dominode is outstanding, with its generous, sappy black fruit tones anchored by impressive minerality and excellent backend structure. The nose delivers a fine constellation of black cherries, sweet dark berries, Savigny spices, bitter chocolate, venison, dark soil tones, cedar and a touch of currant leaf in the upper register. On the palate the wine is deep, full-bodied and rock solid at the core, with fine backend mineral drive, fine-grained tannins and a long, tangy and still quite youthful finish. Fine juice. (Drink between 2024-2060)
