About

91+

The 2015 Cuvée des Ambassades from Domaine du Pavillon de Chavannes is a big and bold example of the vintage, with excellent structure and quite good freshness and bounce. This is very much a creature of its vintage, offering up a deep and slightly roasted bouquet of black cherries, nutskin, woodsmoke, dark soil tones, a bit of grilled venison, dark chocolate and a touch of balsam bough in the upper register. On the palate the wine is deep, full-bodied, focused and chewy, with a rock solid core, good soil drive and a long, still very primary and moderately tannic finish. This wine is ripe, but shows no signs of overripeness, and is nicely structured and will need a couple of years in the cellar to really start to stir and drink with customary generosity. It is a very successful 2015 and will be very long-lived. 2018-2035+.
