My first 2013 white at village level … intense is the word. In the bouquet intense yellow orchard fruit … almonds … peach and hint of acasia. On the palate intense and quite weighty fruit … supported by a potent and vibrant acidity and a nice minerality. Very much different from the accessible 2012 … this is a more serious wine .. a bit more edgy and aloof …

- Visit to Philippe Pacalet – tasting the 2020s from caskI have followed Philippe Pacalet’s wines since his first vintage almost 20 years ago. I furthermore followed the wines he made at Domaine Prieure-Roch before he began on his own. I enjoy Pacalet’s wines, and they almost always provide – for me at least – an essential hedonistic joy, despite the complexity and detail sometimes coming ...

The tasting included 10 Cortons from five producers, all top-flight amongst the panoply of Corton producers. The purpose was to learn: learn about different parts of the Corton vineyards, learn about the different producers … or in short, LEARN. It was ...

It is however great fun to taste the 2018s already now – to form an impression from the wines in general. A great place to be is then Maison Philippe Pacalet, as the ...
- Visit Philippe Pacalet, tasting of the 2016s from caskI have followed the wines of Philippe Pacalet since his first vintages, more than 15 years ago. I have furthermore followed the wines he made at Domaine Prieure-Roch before he began on his own. Let me be prefectly clear – Philippe Pacalet is a tremendously gifted winemaker, with a quite unique talent for producing very drikable ...
