The vineyard of Château Pavie covers 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 aim for 100%.

Today, Gerard Perse is the man in charge. A self-made man and millionaire from Paris. The son of a painter took over a small grocery store in a suburb in 1976 and subsequently achieved enormous success with franchise supermarkets for Champion (Carrefour). Until he only wants to work on wine. In 1998, after purchasing several other wineries, he bought Château Pavie. In the region he is seen as a denier 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 outrageous waste at the time, today almost everyone does it. The success of his wines has improved his reputation considerably. Not only Parker, but also other international wine critics give the highest scores. And wine with a story.

The 2022 Château Pavie is a blend of 52% Merlot, 30% Cabernet Franc & 18 Cabernet Sauvignon. The grapes come from 34-year-old vines spread over 42 hectares in Saint-Emilion. The ground is divided into 3 different planes. First you have the limestone plateau of Saint-Émilion, located about 85 meters above the Dordogne river. This consists of clay and limestone soil on limestone with marine fossils (2/3 of the vineyard). Then comes the Côte Pavie, the “medium mountain range”, 55 meters above the Dordogne river, facing south. This consists of a brown clay-limestone soil with a fine texture. Finally comes the “Pied de Côte”, consisting of sandy, sandy-clay and sandy-gravel soils. Prune up to 8 buds for the old vines and up to 6 buds for the young vines. Thinning, leaf stripping, is adapted to each plot. The grapes are picked and sorted by hand. Vinification in temperature-controlled wooden barrels. Malolactic fermentation in barrels. Finally, the wine is aged in 75% new oak, 25% one-year-old barrels.

FACT: Under the tab: Attachment you will find the official fact sheet and we will send it to you digitally when you order this wine. It is also worth mentioning that we purchase the (Bordeaux) wines directly and never purchase them through intermediaries because we do not know which journeys the wine has made and how it has been treated. The wines come from the cellars of the Chateau directly to our conditioned Warehouse in Dordrecht where all our wines are stored.
