Cuvée des Ambassades
The 2017 Côte de Brouilly “Cuvée Ambassades” from Domaine du Pavillon de Chavannes is excellent and one of the “cooler” examples of the 2017 vintage I have had the pleasure to taste. The bright, complex and youthful nose jumps from the glass in a mix of red and black cherries, sweet cranberry, bonfire, gamebird, stony soil tones and a fine topnote of fresh herbs. On the palate the wine is deep, full-bodied and tangy, with a tightly-knit, youthful personality out of the blocks, excellent focus and grip, a touch of backend tannin and a long, mineral-infused finish. This has lovely purity and precision for the warm summer of 2017. 2019- 2045. 92+.
Brilliant red. A complex, expansive bouquet evokes fresh cherry and raspberry, along with suave floral and exotic spice notes. Stains the palate with sweet red fruit, candied lavender and spicecake flavors that deepen and spread out slowly on the back half. Shows very good energy for the year and finishes long and juicy, displaying harmonious tannins and lingering florality.
