On a good slope, Les Guettes is the Pavelots’ highest 1er cru plot. Very limestone, very little top soil. Due south with low yields. Sound, even purple, with a rather strict nose. Fruit starts gently then really kicks on, this is in liqueur cherry and raspberry mode, but still balanced. Fair length.  89-92 points, Jasper Morris, Inside Burgundy June 2020

Here too there is a mentholated top note present on the more sauvage and forest floor nuanced aromas of red and dark currant. I very much like the sense of underlying tension suffusing the even more mineral-driven middle weight flavors that coat the palate with dry extract that buffers the very firm tannic spine shaping the beautifully long finale. This serious, austere and compact effort is quite tightly wound and a wine that is unlikely to make for especially interesting drinking young; then again, textbook Guettes rarely does. Sweet spot Outstanding  91-93 points, Allen Meadow’s Burghound April 2021
