Reviews For This Wine


 
International Wine Cellar | 95

($195-$249; bottled in March of 2003) Good full medium ruby. Knockout nose of blackberry, espresso, licorice, minerals and burnished oak; offers terrific verve and clarity for a wine so ripe and rich. Then extremely youthful on the palate, with tightly wound flavors and great inner-mouth energy. Brilliant black fruit and mineral flavors offer compelling perfume. This is still remarkably primary despite its long elevage (the wine was bottled just three weeks prior to my tasting). Finishes with great tactile, chewy persistence. An outstanding vintage for this property.

I tasted this wine twice during the 2000 horizontals, then I actually popped the cork and drank a half-bottle of it. This wine remains, for me, one of the compelling success stories for proprietor Gerard Perse. An extraordinary effort made from a blend of 60% Merlot, 30% Cabernet Franc, and 10% Cabernet Sauvignon from the limestone soils that dominate this very distinctive terroir, the 2000 Pavie has moved out of the closed, dormant, broodingly backward stage into an adolescent period where one can see its extraordinary vibrancy, and great complexity as well as potential. It boasts an unctuous display of rich, cedar box-infused cassis fruit and liquid minerality. The tannins have sweetened, yet the wine has thirty years of longevity and potential evolution. A beautiful wine of great mass as well as elegance, it is good to see the extraordinary efforts that Gerard Perse and his team have made confirmed in this prodigious wine. A legend now ... a legend for the future.

Voluputuous red. Glorious aromas of very ripe fruit, with layers of spices and chocolate. Full-bodied, with big yet very silky tannins and a long, long finish. Generous and seductive red. Lasts minutes on the palate. Best ever from here. 7,500 cases made.

Really a fantastic wine, but not quite as otherworldly as I had expected. It had a very, very long finish with fruity, silky tannins that seemed quite endless.

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.
