International Wine Cellar Author: Stephen Tanzer Issue: Issue 120

($150; bottled in July of 2004) Ruby-red. Aromas of black raspberry, tobacco, minerals and mocha. Suave, silky, lush and round; quite full but with lovely inner-mouth energy and aromatic character. Seamless, deep flavors of redcurrant, fruitcake and minerals. Finishes with excellent mounting persistence, the dusty, fine tannins buried in fruit. A terrific effort for the vintage, and likely to age gracefully over the next decade or two.

Wine Advocate Author: Robert Parker Issue: 158

While not as legendary as Pavie's 2003, 2001, 2000, 1999, or 1998, the 2002 is one of the top wines of the vintage. Its deep plum/ruby/purple color is followed by aromas of fruitcake, cranberries, cherry liqueur, crushed rocks, and subtle oak. Savory, full-bodied, remarkably concentrated, layered, and forward for a Pavie, it should be accessible in 3-4 years, and will evolve effortlessly for two decades.

Wine Spectator Author: James Suckling

Dark color with complex aromas of blackberries, flowers and mace with undertones of nutmeg. Full-bodied, with a solid core of velvety tannins and ripe fruit. Goes on and on.

Truly amazing and already accessible!!! Not an overly massive, dense full bodied wine, rather this bottle is wonderfully concentrated and delicate. Complex aromas of leather, cedar, sweet plum, "Juicy Fresh," cigar, smoke, blue berry, and dark cherry with hints of vegetables. Keeps evolving in the decanter. Lush and silky on the palate followed by delicately lingering finish with lively acidity. Very well balanced. I sensed the similar DNA of wine maker Gerard Perse between this beauty and his less renowned terroir Monbousquet.
