    Critical Acclaim:

    Very sleek and primal, with mouthcoating boysenberry and plum sauce notes pushed by extra fig, ganache and toasted spice. Long and velvety through the finish, with a depth and mouthfeel that sets this apart. An impressive effort.

    Wine Spectator

    The 2011 Pavie Decesse exhibits an inky/purple color along with notes of crushed chalk, black raspberries, blackberries, licorice, charcoal and toasty oak. Full-bodied, thick and unctuous (atypical for this vintage) with high tannin, this cuvee had just come out of malolactic fermentation when I tasted it, which undoubtedly accounts for its primary, infantile showing. Nevertheless, it is loaded, multidimensional and impressive, and will require 6-8 years of cellaring. It should keep for 25-30 years.

    This is wonderful on the nose with floral, blackberry and blue berry aromas. Full and very silky with a long finish. This was very late harvested around the third week of October. Excellent wine for the vintage.

    Bright ruby. Enticing nose of crystallized blackberry, violet and minerals. Pure and vibrant on the palate, with mineral-driven blackcurrant and blackberry flavors dominating. Finishes sweet, creamy and very long. One of the best wines of the vintage; competent winemaking aside, Pavie-Decesse benefits from amazing, first-rate terroir and that advantage is never more apparent than in challenging vintages like 2011.
