About Chateau Pavie

After underperforming for years, Pavie was purchased in 1998 by the hypermarché owner Gérard Perse, who invested heavily to realize the great potential of this remarkable south-facing hillside site.

93 Points | Stephen Tanzer's IWC - July/August 2010

($200-$230) Saturated deep ruby, one of the darkest of all the 2007s. Liqueur-like but vibrant nose offers deep aromas of cassis, licorice, minerals, tobacco, soy sauce and bitter chocolate. Dense, sweet, slightly high-toned and powerful but with a penetrating quality and superb energy driven by an impression of mineral salts. Really wonderfully sweet and dense wine, with a thick, silky texture and superb mouth coverage. Very long and very young on the back end. Less extreme than some vintages of this wine; undeniably outsized for the vintage but fresh.
