Domaine du Pavillon Corton des Marechaudes Grand Cru MONOPOLE 2017 (5730)

France - Burgundy - Cote de Beaune - Aloxe-Corton
Pinot Noir

Bill Nanson, The Burgundy Report: Just a touch more colour. A much bigger nose – like the last but with more density and also filled out with more barrel references. A more direct wine, a river of flavour flowing through the middle to the finish. There is more density here but not more weight – it’s fluid, intense and will be excellent – oaked today, but wait a few years, you won’t find any oak then… So long too…

The World of Fine Wine

The Aloxe-Corton Premier Cru Clos des Marechaudes is exceptionally elegant and fine this vintage, but the grand cru is finer still. Luminous mid-ruby. An exotic light whiff of white pepper and spice from the whole-bunch (but not normally more than 20% this year) and the 50% new oak. Impressive structure, seductive suavity, harmonioss, layered, and seamless, but the focus and freshness to match the grand cru richness.


James Suckling Tasting Report

The 2017 from the other part of this vineyard (with a 1er Cru designation) is so charming, but this is a brooding giant with lots of black-fruit aromas, including forest berries. Firm structure and a lot of power at the long, fresh finish.


Decanter Magazine

Suitably firm and serious, this monopole holding was fermented with 30% stems and aged in 50% new wood. It's sappy and a little gruff, but not without concentration, complexity, density or focus. A classic example of a fairly traditional Corton style. (Drink between 2025-2032).
