Estate Notes

Château Pavie 2000 is in virtually pristine condition - a perfect wine from a great vintage.

Under Gerard Perse, Château Pavie has become one of Saint-Émilion’s leading châteaux. Perse is an absolute perfectionist and, since he took over in 1998, he has managed the 92 acre vineyard with nothing short of brilliance and his grapes are treated with kid gloves Dating back to the 19th Century, Pavie is situated on one of the district's most desirable plots in the hills south-east of the village of Saint-Émilion where orchards of peaches (pavies) once grew.

Reviews

“Just beginning to come around and strut its enormous potential, this wine at age 15 has been evolving like a glacier. The wine has an inky, opaque, plum/purple color and a stunningly rich nose of mulberries, bramble berries, blackberries, licorice and incense as well as touches of toast and graphite. Fabulously concentrated and full-bodied, with a multidimensional mouthfeel, this profound Pavie is in mid-adolescence. It should evolve and continue to drink well for at least another 30-40 years. This is clearly the first compelling effort made by the Perse family.” Robert Parker
