94+ points John Gilman (View From the Cellar): "The 2017 la Dominode is the most structured young Savigny premier cru in the cellars, but its potential is enormous. The youthful nose was still in the process of absorbing its serving of new oak, but will do so seamlessly with a bit more age, and offers up a fine blend of black plums, red and black cherries, pigeon, dark soil tones, raw cocoa, a bit of bonfire, cedar and an exotic topnote of licorice. On the palate the wine is deep, full-bodied and nicely reserved out of the blocks, with an excellent core of fruit, fine-grained tannins and a long, soil-driven and complex finish. This is serious juice. 2026-2065+. (Nov/Dec 2018)"

91-93 points Neal Martin (Vinous): "The 2017 Savigny-lès-Beaune La Dominode 1er Cru has another promising bouquet of pure blackberry, bilberry, crushed stone and light loamy scents that gain intensity in the glass. The palate is medium-bodied with crisp tannin, offering plenty of crunchy black fruit. Slightly tarry toward the finish but perhaps offers the most persistency amongst Pavelot’s impressive range. Cellar this for three years if you can. Drink: 2022-2035. (Jan 2019)"

91-93 points Fine Wine Review: "Depth to stony nose. Deep red fruits, hint of mint, most volume of these wines, good structure but also roundness, some smoothness. 40% is old vines — 80 years. (5/5/19)"

92 points and 'Top Value,' Allen Meadows (Burghound): "( two-thirds of the vines are between 70 and 80 years of age and the remaining vines are approximately 20+ years old). Here too a generous dollop of wood frames the very spicy aromas of plum liqueur, dark raspberry and subtle humus and underbrush scents. The sleek and impressively intense medium weight flavors brim with minerality while offering the best complexity and persistence in the range on the balanced, firm and serious finish. This too should amply reward mid to even longer-term cellaring potential. Drink: 2027+. (Apr 2019)"
