An amazing achievement in this vintage, although not at the level of the prodigious 2003, 2001, or 2000, the 2002 Pavie Decesse is a dense ruby/purple-colored, full-bodied wine revealing notes of dried herbs, fruitcake, licorice, black currants, and cherries. Textured, fleshy, and concentrated, this is one of the stars of the Right Bank in this challenging vintage. Its low acidity and plush style suggest enjoying it now and over the next 15+ years.

Neal Martin - Wine Advocate

Tasted blind at Farr’s 2002 Bordeaux tasting. I under-rated this wine out of barrel. This has a ripe, clean, very poised bouquet with very good definition: wild strawberry, cranberry and a touch of vanilla. Similarly the palate is clean and pure on the entry, not a complicated wine, simple and uncomplicated, but this is more than compensated by its poise and its natural sense of being. Good acidity, nice weight and focus on the wild brambly finish. Very fine. Tasted October 2009.

James Suckling - Wine Spectator

Impressive color with a serious intensity of berries, chocolate and toasted oak. Medium- to full-bodied, with round and velvety tannins and a medium finish. A caressing red. Best after 2007. 750 cases made.

Rather dull red. Comforting fruit-cake traditional nose. Lively and fresh and a very nice whole. One of the more appetising St-Emilions. Dry finish but not drying. I see I was very hard on this wine from Gérard Perse, owner of Pavie, en primeur and al delighted to have ebeen proved wrongon the basis of this particular sample. Drink 2009-19 17/20
