2019 Pernand-Vergelesses Blanc, Domaine Pavelot

While prices for white Burgundy climb as every year passes and allocations seemingly shrink at an alarming rate, it is so life-affirming to find a hugely impressive Chardonnay from a fabulous Domaine, and it is priced so keenly I nearly dropped my glass when I tasted it. I was cruising through a line-up of posh white Burgundies, and this wine jumped out at me with its magical aroma and silky-smooth palate. Under this exuberance sits the dramatic minerality of the village of Pernand, and there is even an echo of Corton-Charlemagne here such is the grandeur in this cosmic wine.
