The Pavie 2020 is a blend of 50% Merlot, 34% Cabernet Franc and 16% Cabernet Sauvignon. It matures in French oak barrels, 75% of which are new oak barriques. Opaque purple-black, notes of plum pudding, blueberry pie and dark chocolate-covered cherries burst out of the glass, closely followed by hints of eucalyptus, star anise, tobacco and fertile loam with a hint of cedarwood. Built like a brick house, the full palate offers very firm but wonderfully ripe, velvety tannins and seamless freshness to support the densely loaded, muscular black and blue fruit, with a long finish and plenty of mineral layers.

About the winery Château Pavie

The vineyard of Château Pavie is 42 hectares in size. 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 franchised supermarkets for Champion (Carrefour). Until he only wants to be busy with wine. In 1998, after buying several other wineries, he buys Château Pavie. In the region he is seen as a denial of Saint-Emilion wines because of the techniques he applied, 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 does it. Due to the success of his wines, his reputation has improved a lot. Not only Parker, but also other international wine critics give the highest scores. And wine with a story.
