International Wine Cellar Author: Stephen Tanzer Issue: Issue 108

($84-$115) Bright, deep ruby. Explosive aroma of roasted black cherry. Dense, highly concentrated and deep, with penetrating, palate-saturating flavors of blackberry and black cherry framed by firm underlying minerality. A wine of great force; despite its major ripeness, there's also a cool, medicinal aspect that's utterly refreshing. Finishes with big, broad tannins and outstanding length.

Wine Advocate Author: Robert Parker Issue: 189

Gerard Perse's 2000 Pavie Decesse, a blend of 90% Merlot and 10% Cabernet Franc from a vineyard situated above Pavie, on the steep limestone hillsides outside the walled town of St.-Emilion, is a fabulous effort (all the Perse wines are stunning in this vintage). Notes of camphor, creme de cassis, violets, black currants, cedar, and licorice jump from the glass of this inky/purple-hued offering. Monumental richness, sensational sweet tannin, a skyscraper-like mid-palate, and a 45+-second finish result in an extraordinary wine that is just reaching its plateau of full maturity. It should last for another 20-25 years.

Wine Spectator

Extremely ripe, almost raisiny, with lots of Indian spices and prunes that turn to tar. Full-bodied, with loads of fruit and velvety tannins that emphasize the richness of the year and the class of the soil. 2,080 cases made.

Deeply colored with a California Cabernet styled nose of sweet candied plum and new oak. Tons of sweet fruit on the palate but the wine?s tannins are very firm and need at least a decade to smooth out and integrate. Quite forward and shows well even at four years of age despite its rather formidable underlying structure. 60% Merlot, 25% Franc, and 15% Cabernet.
