Decanter, 94 Points 

"It's tricky to choose between Hugues Pavelot's Savigny Premiers Crus, such is their consistent quality in 2018, but this very low-yielding 1.5-ha site is truly outstanding. Sourced from very poor, limestone-based soils, it's chiselled, refreshing and sappy, with well-judged 20% whole bunches, fine, floral fruit flavours and just a hint of oak spice." 

John Gilman, 93 Points 

"Hugues Pavelot’s 2018 version of aux Guettes is also a stellar bottle in the making, with a far more black fruity personality than the lovely les Lavières. The bouquet delivers a fine mix of black cherries, sweet cassis, bitter chocolate, dark soil tones, gamebird, woodsmoke, vanillin oak and just a whisper of youthful Savigny spice. On the palate the wine is deep, pure and full, with a fine core of fruit, excellent balance and grip and a long, fine-grained and soil-driven finish. This will need a decade to reach real maturity, but it will be delicious when it is ready to drink and should be quite long-lived.

Vinous, 91-93 Points 

"The 2018 Savigny-lès-Beaune Aux Guettes 1er Cru offers crisp brambly red berry fruit mixed with sous-bois and faint tobacco aromas on the nose. The oak here is neatly integrated. The palate is medium-bodied with grainy tannins and a fine bead of acidity. A little spicier than the Les Lavières, with a chalky, energetic finish. Superb." 

Burghound, 90-92 Points 

"Here there is enough reduction present to knock down the underlying fruit, but the nose appears to be notably ripe. Otherwise the sleek, intense and tautly muscular mineral-laden flavors possess excellent vibrancy while delivering fine length on the firm, youthfully austere and even firmer built-to-age finish. This too is going to need at least some patience as it's presently very tightly wound."
