this is a big boy Bordeaux. a wonderful nose right at the open, followed after a 45 minute breathe by a well balanced mid-palate with notes of dark chocolate, black cherry, tobacco and leather balanced with a nice tanninc minerality. finish is long and huge, this wine is still in its prime but probably mo need to hold further--but will be good for years.

The 1999 Pavie according to Parker a candidate for "wine of the vintage". Wonderful deep ruby red color with enticing aromas of cherry liqueur and black currants. The 1999 Pavie exceptional. There is minimum tannin. An excellant investment quality wine. Buy more and hold for 10 years. It is a winner!

Auction bottle, decanted 3 hours. Rich and deep aromas, plums blackberries and cedar. Medium bodied, not a heavy or coating Pavie, but very nice length, balance and long life.

This was the first Pavie I have actually enjoyed.Is not an overblown caricature. Rather, it was instantly identified by the group (blind) as a modern Bordeaux, but an excellent one. I agree. Definitely on the black fruit side of the spectrum. Ripe and plush, but not dessicated. Creamy mouthfeel. For those who only like "classic" Bordeaux, this might still be too much. But for those who don't mind a bit more modern style, this is a very fine example. Mouthcoating and with a long, smoky finish

Typically Pavie. Harmonious, fruitful, hints of oak. Less expansive than the 98 or the 2000 but still displays plenty of balance. A little drying and short on the finish but it's still a very nice drink.

Double decanted to remove sediment. Hickory smoke, plum and grilled bread. Graham cracker. Fantastic balance. Elegant and long. Raspberry, salt and iron. Delicious. Black licorice. Consumed very slowly and still improving at the end.

I hate the bottle Perse is using on his 2000s. Using a sloped shoulder modern bottle on a Bordeaux of this quality is roughly akin to painting a Bentley hot pink. In any event, what is inside the bottle is quite special indeed. The wine is brought up entirely in new oak and bottled unfined and unfiltered. Very darkly colored wine with lots of thickly pigmented legs. An already fairly giving nose of sweet oak and blackberry. Frankly delicious in the mouth with graham cracker, dark fruits, Oreo cookies, and oak. Full of sweet powerful fruit but still shows grace and elegance. Awesome stuff but it is unclear if it will age as well as past vintages of Pavie. (The '61 was still going strong last year.)

A flawed bottle may be affected by cork taint, heat (maderized), oxidation, or excessive sulfur. Additionally, some people consider wines tainted by Brettanomyces (Brett), a non-spore forming genus of yeast, a flaw although there is much controversy surrounding the subject.
