International Wine Cellar Author: Stephen Tanzer Issue: Issue 96

Ruby-red. Sappy, liqueur-like aromas of cherry, raspberry coulis, roast coffee and exotic wood spices. Wonderfully sweet and mouthfilling, but with harmonious acidity giving shape and clarity to the flavors. Finishes quite long, with fine tannins. Not at all overextracted; in fact, here the tannins seem a bit sweeter than those of the '99. Still unfolding; this may ultimately surpass the '99.

Still blackish hints in the crimson. Sweet spicy notes on the nose. Quite complex and intriguing without being exaggerated. Lovely balance and follow through. Long and neat. This wine is really rewarding. Just slightly dry on the finish. Hint of orange peel.

Wine Advocate Author: Robert Parker Issue: 134

A 50-year wine, this opaque purple-colored offering exhibits a strong, precise nose of black fruits, liquid minerals, smoke, and graphite. Extremely full-bodied, yet brilliantly delineated, powerful, and awesomely concentrated, it boasts a fabulous mid-palate as well as a finish that lasts for nearly a minute. This vin de garde requires 5-6 years of cellaring. A tour de force in winemaking, it has the potential to be the most profound Pavie ever produced, except for its two successors.

Wine Spectator Author: James Suckling

A bit lean for the vintage but very good. Lots of tar, berry, tobacco and violet. Full-bodied, with silky tannins and a smoky, fruity aftertaste. 6,665 cases made.

This is a 50 year wine. Drink now or save for 25 years. Outstanding full bodied and powerful with a beautiful finish that lasts and lasts. Must decantear for 3-4 hours. This most profound Pavie I have ever tasted alough I am looking forward to trying the amazing 1999 Pavie.

Daniel B Trust Rating: 99 Tasted On: 10/20/2003 Drink Dates: 2003-2012

Raised in 100% new oak with malolactic fermentation occurring in barrel, the wine?s cepage is 60% Merlot, 30% Cabernet Franc, and 10% Cabernet Sauvignon. Darkly colored, the wine already shows a somewhat mature nose of mint, oak, sweet vanilla, and warm black cherry. On the palate, there is plenty of tannin and substantial but integrated acidity.
