Great Burgundy Magnums for Turkey Day!
These will be on my Thanksgiving Day table for sure. Truth be told however we aren't having Turkey, we are going rogue this year with a Porchetta and Duck.
These are impressive wines and will look impressive on your holiday table!

2017 Jean Marc Pavelot Savigny les Beaune Dominode 1er Cru...$116.99 / Magnum
The 2017 la Dominode is the most structured young Savigny premier cru in the cellars, but its potential is enormous. The youthful nose was still in the process of absorbing its serving of new oak, but will do so seamlessly with a bit more age, and offers up a fine blend of black plums, red and black cherries, pigeon, dark soil tones, raw cocoa, a bit of bonfire, cedar and an exotic topnote of licorice. On the palate the wine is deep, full-bodied and nicely reserved out of the blocks, with an excellent core of fruit, fine-grained tannins and a long, soil-driven and complex finish. This is serious juice. 2026-2065+.

2015 Jean Marc Pavelot Savigny les Beaue Dominode 1er Cru...$124.99 / Magnum
The 2015 Savigny-lès-Beaune 1er Cru Les Dominodes is cut from the same cloth as the Aux Gravains, albeit with more floral scents and more red fruit. It is just as beautifully defined and seductive though. The palate is medium-bodied with silky smooth tannin, superb mineralité, immense cohesion and energy that spills over on the chalky-textured finish. This is (yet another) outstanding 2015 from Domaine Pavelot who frankly has done little wrong this vintage
