WS97 "This is a stunner, with the warmth of the vintage marrying ideally with the relative coolness of the terroir to deliver a wide range of vivid plum, boysenberry, raspberry and cherry paste flavors that have energy and drive, carried by a long graphite note and backed by a roasted apple wood accent that has been fully absorbed. Powerfully ripe, but not heady, with a sense of poise through the finish. A jaw-dropper.—Non-blind Pavie vertical (March 2017)." JM Mar 2017
Chateau Pavie, Premier Grand Cru Classe B, Saint-Emilion Grand Cru
"Pavie is widely acclaimed as one of Bordeaux’s greatest terroirs, of largely limestone and clay soils. Brilliantly situated with a sunny, southern exposure and exceptional drainage, Pavie potentially rivals nearby Ausone, the oldest and possibly the most famous estate in Bordeaux. Until 1978, previous owners rarely produced great wine, but of course that all changed with the acquisition of the 92-acre, single vineyard by Chantal and Gérard Perse. In short, they dramatically raised the quality. The resulting wine has been considered one of the superstars of Bordeaux since 1978. A brilliant effort, it, along with Ausone and Petrus, is one of the three greatest offerings of the right bank in 2003." RP 2004 & 2015
