Made from the estate's younger vines (under 10-years of age), the 2005 Les Aromes de Pavie is a blend of 70% Merlot, 20% Cabernet Franc, and 10% Cabernet Sauvignon aged in primarily old oak for two years. Deep ruby/purple-hued, soft, fruity, medium to full-bodied, and spicy with hints of high class cigar tobacco mixed with cassis and sweet cherries, it possesses some of its bigger sibling's personality, and is capable of lasting 10-12 years.

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.
I liked this wine. Nice fruit and Bordeaux character, very good price.
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!
