90-94 points Fine Wine Review: "As I’ve often said before, for those who complain about the price of Burgundies these days, you can still get outstanding wine for relatively little money from less fashionable appellations such as Savigny-les-Beaune, and this is as good an address as you could want there to prove that claim... The nose here is stony. The mouth is stony, too, with edginess and nervosity that gives the wine great energy to go with its dark fruit. (2/14/16)"

93 points and 'Sweet spot,' Allen Meadows (Burghound): "(from a .60 ha parcel where two-thirds of the vines are more than 70+ years of age). There is just enough reduction present to suggest that this would benefit from decanting if you're tempted to try a bottle in its youth. Otherwise there is a really lovely sense of underlying tension present on the concentrated and tautly muscular flavors that even so possess a relatively refined mouth feel before concluding in an almost aggressively mineral-inflected, balanced and hugely long finish. This superb effort is flat out terrific and highly recommended, indeed this is as good a Pavelot Gravains as I can remember in many a year. Drink: 2024+. (Apr 2016)"

93 points John Gilman (View From the Cellar): "The 2014 Pavelot Gravains is also superb, offering up a deep, nascently complex and very vibrant nose of black raspberries, black cherries, French roast, dark soil tones, woodsmoke and just a hint of the autumnal elements that will come with extended bottle age. On the palate the wine is deep, full-bodied and very pure on the attack, with an excellent core of fruit, lovely transparency, fine-grained tannins and outstanding focus on the long, refined and classic finish. All this beauty needs is some time in bottle to blossom. 2022-2055. (Nov/Dec 2015)"
