The 2019 Pavie is a blend of 50% Merlot, 32% Cabernet Franc and 18% Cabernet Sauvignon. Very deep garnet-purple in color it bursts out of the glass with a fabulously expressive nose of crème de cassis, plum compote and blueberry preserves, leading to an impressive array of nuances, with notes of dark chocolate, camphor, licorice, rose petals, loam and mineral tin. The rich, full flavor offers layer upon layer of luscious black and blue fruit with lots of exotic spice and lovely floral and mineral notes, supported by firm, super soft tannins and remarkable tension, ending with great length and depth. This can only be Pavie. It makes for a tempting classy glass now, but patience will be rewarded if it's bottled for at least 5-7 years and then drinks it over the next 30 years.

About the Château Pavie . winery

The vineyard of Château Pavie is 42 hectares. It is a large whole, but contains different terroirs, each with its own microclimate. Château Pavie is often one of the last wineries to complete the harvest. They work responsibly: 70% of the vineyard is now treated organically, they strive for 100%.

Today Gerard Perse is the man in charge. A self-made man and millionaire from Paris. The son of a painter takes over a small grocery store in a suburb in 1976 and then achieves enormous success with franchise supermarkets for Champion (Carrefour). Until he only wants to be involved with wine. In 1998, after buying several other wineries, he bought Château Pavie. In the region, he is seen as a denial of Saint-Emilion wines due to the techniques he used, for example the early cutting of unripe bunches of grapes to limit production and increase quality. Considered an unheard of waste at the time, today almost everyone is doing it. The success of his wines has greatly enhanced his reputation. Not only Parker, but also other international wine critics give the highest scores. And wine with a story.
