Philippe Pacalet


Born into wine, Philippe Pacalet worked with his uncle Marcel Lapierre from a young age, and later spent 10 years as winemaker at Prieure Roch. In 2001, Philippe started his own project. With no money and no land, all he had was the experience he cultivated, and with patience he rented plots where he could work the vines. Today, Philippe is a key character of the natural wine movement and his wine has been praised by the critics as the most similar in style to Domaine de la Romanée-Conti. In his words, “Maybe I don’t make fancy wines but surely elegant ones”. Whole bunch fermentation, made reductively, with nothing added save for a slight of sulphur before bottling.


Pommard 2018


Not as heavy as you may expect from Pommard. Red fruits, violets, very elegant with good structure. Smooth tannins, fruits take centre stag, with hint of Pommard style spice and earthiness.


Gevrey Chambertin 2020


 Peppery and vegetal on the nose, the sturdiness unfolds into lavender florals on the palate. Easy to drink, quintessentially Pacalet with approachability in youth but built to age, a long finish and a bitterness reminiscent of Piemontese Nebbiolo.


Aloxe Corton 1er Cru 2020


Aloxe-Corton 1er Cru is a muscular wine that’s somewhat closed on opening, allow it time to show itself fully, though Pacalet’s wines don’t take long to come through. Liquorice and black tea giving way to strawberry and dried rose with some oxygen. Lovely stuff.
