Pavelot 1er Cru Sous Fretille 2015

47.00

This notable premier cru parcel, is the only in the village to enjoy its premier cru status uniquely for Chardonnay. Not difficult to see why as it is easily set apart from the other sites in the village dedicated primarily to Pinot, planted at lower elevation and with east facing expositions. Sous Frétille, by contrast is up behind the village just below the plateau of Frétille. It enjoys an enviable south/south-west facing exposition just behind the Grand Cru hill of Corton-Charlemagne. The unique  wines origniating from this site have a tendency toward volume and muscularity, more abundant in minerality than fruit and with a distinctly gun flint character. The warm 2015 vintage ups the ante on volume and length but the older vines from this vineyard go a long way in preserving acidity, freshness and balance.
