I am an admirer of proprietor Valette, so it has given me no pleasure to write so-so reviews for recent Pavie vintages. I was pleased in this blind tasting to see how strongly both the 1989 and 1990 Pavies performed. Both slightly eclipsed my scores given immediately after bottling. The 1989 displays a deep ruby/garnet color with no signs of amber at the edge. It offers up an exotic, spicy, fruitcake, earthy, chocolatey nose with sweet woodsy aromas in the background. Long and youthful, with noticeably hard tannin, this medium-bodied, concentrated 1989 appears to be a slowly evolving wine.

All elegance and fine texture. Beautiful aromas of milk chocolate and ripe berries. Full- to medium-bodied, with silky tannins and a sweet fruit, chocolate aftertaste.

About This Producer


Chateau Pavie, the largest St.Emilion 1er Grand Cru Classe (Class B), is located on an old peach orchard, known as pavies. Vines have been cultivated at Pavie since the 4th century, making it one of the two oldest estates in St. Emilion. The chateau produces about 15,000 cases per year made from Merlot, Cabernet Franc, and Cabernet Sauvignon. The vines have an average age of 45 years and grow on clay, limestone and sand soils. Chateau La Gaffeliere and Chateau Pavie-Decesse border Pavie's vineyards. The wine undergoes malolactic fermentation in barrel and then ages in new oak. The wine's style is elegant with good depth of fruit on the palate. In recent years, Pavie has become richer and more concentrated. Chateau Pavie also produces a Bordeaux AC rose called La Rosee de Pavie.
