    Winemaker's Notes:

    Saturated ruby color with a nuance of vermillon, 2005 Les Pavots reveals an deep bouquet of black cherry, blackcurrant, blueberry and blackberry, with nuances of cedar, cacao, cigar box, black tea, graphite, a stylish 'guarigue' touch, forest floor, sweet vanilla and cloves. Extremely full-bodied, this wine offers the same rich, ripe fruit impressions on the palate. The mouth feel is full and round, with elegant tannins, which lead to a long finish. Complex, 2005 Les Pavots will benefit from another year of cellaring for near term enjoyment and will age gracefully for a decade or more.

    Critical Acclaim:


    #27 Wine Spectator Top 100 of 2008

    Shows gorgeous Cabernet purity, with a profound offering of ripe, fleshy currant, black cherry, blackberry, anise and mineral. Amazingly supple and harmonious, with tannins that are both gentle and tender and then just firm enough to let you know they're there. Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot, Cabernet Franc and Petit Verdot. Drink now through 2017. 3,600 cases made.

    Wine Spectator

    The 2005 Les Pavots (3,600 cases of 63% Cabernet Sauvignon, 23% Cabernet Franc, 12% Merlot, and the rest Petit Verdot) is a sensational wine, with a style that suggests a hypothetical blend of a great St.-Emilion and Pomerol. Chocolatey cassis notes intermixed with incense, licorice, and a hint of black olive are present in this wine. When it hits the palate, it comes across as very Pomerol-like, with lushness, full body, and opulence. The tannins are sweet, the pH high, and the wine gorgeously full, pure, dense, and long. It’s a terrific example of non-interventionalist winemaking that has turned out a beautiful, silky-textured wine that should age effortlessly for 15+ years. Like so many 2005s, this wine has really put on weight since I tasted it last year.
