Ruby-crimson colour. A fresh nose of red fruit (cherry) and torrefaction; a lively attack in the mouth, powerful flavours of blackcurrent, cherry jam, prunes (typical of the vintage) and black fruit (blueberry, blackberry). The tannins are pronounced yet very fine and pure. Great aromatic complexity and exceptional length.
Château Pavie has a great diversity of soils and it is interesting to place the vineyard geographically: Soils corresponding to the Saint Emilion limestone "plateau", located around 85 metres up from the Dordogne, and composed of clay-limestone soil on top of chalk with marine fossils. Soils corresponding to the "mid-hillside" land 55 metres up from the Dordogne, composed of a brown clay-limestonesoil with a fine texture.
Ruby-red. Expressive nose combines plum, cherry, black raspberry, mocha, minerals, mace and cinnamon. Sweet and silky, with lovely inner-mouth complexity. Strong suggestion of minerality. Finishes with big but even tannins that hit the palate very late. Very long finish hints at iron.
Delivers complex, yet subtle, aromas of sweet tobacco, blackberry, green coffee bean and dried flowers. Full-bodied, with a deep and subtle palate that shows wonderful density of fruit and impressive balance. It lasts very long on the finish—and what a finish. Don't wait. A blockbuster style. Woody, but exciting.
