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. Today, Pavie is one of the deepest, ripest, most palate-saturating and lushly tannic wines of Bordeaux.
90-92 Points | Stephen Tanzer's IWC - April 2013
Good full purple-ruby. Sexy aromas of blackberry, black cherry and vanilla are complicated by hints of violet and graphite. Seamless, fine-grained and lightly saline, with tactile flavors of blueberry, cocoa and pepper. Very impressive balance and depth here. Finishes with supple tannins and outstanding length. A huge success for what is a less extracted style than usual for Pavie. Very well done.
