This tastes younger and less evolve than previously tasted. Had a great core of fruit, it seems more a 2nd growth than a 2nd label. After 6 hrs in decant were like new! amazing. Full body, great and distinctive nose plus a plush tannins makes this a great value.

This is a very nice wine. Big beautiful blackberries come across with some plum sauce and a hint of slate. I decanted this wine for 2.5 hours and after the initial tasting we had a roasted lamb chops with rosemary. This wine went beautifully with the meal and at the 4 hour mark it blossomed into rich velvety liquid ambrosia. this wine has sweet but very firm tannins and it is just a baby... Decant this a minimum of 3 - 4 hours and you will see get a taste of its full potential!

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.
