A tight, pretty wine with blue-fruit, chocolate and hazelnut character. It’s medium-to full-bodied. Fine, dense tannins on the palate give a seamless, silky texture. Second wine of Château Pavie. Drink in 2022.
Very perfumed, this wine has a good percentage of Cabernet Franc to give both richness and structure to the generous Merlot core. It is a beautiful wine, rich while also very sophisticated. Made to age quickly, it will be ready from 2022.
A blend of 65% Merlot, 18% Cabernet Franc and 17% Cabernet Sauvignon, the 2017 Arômes de Pavie is made from the young vines of Pavie, and due to its elevation, there was no frost in the vineyard in 2017. Deep garnet-purple in color, the wine has quite an earthy nose of fertile loam, mossy tree bark and truffles over a core of plum preserves, chocolate-covered cherries and a waft of cinnamon stick. Medium to full-bodied, the palate is bursting with bright fruits and energy, structured by wonderfully plush tannins and bold freshness, finishing with a spicy kick. Drinking Window : 2022 - 2045
The 2017 Arômes de Pavie is just gorgeous. Pliant and supple, with terrific fruit purity, the 2017 is an excellent choice for drinking now and over the next decade or so. Sweet red cherry and plum, mocha, wild flowers, rose petal and cinnamon add layers of nuance, but more than anything else the 2017 is a wine to drink for its joyous fruit and super-inviting personality.
From a terroir located on the plateau of Saint-Emilion, as well as the younger vines of Pavie, the 2017 Pavie Arômes de Pavie (mostly Merlot with roughly 20% of Cabernet Franc and 10% Cabernet Sauvignon) is a blockbuster effort that readers should snatch up. Rounded, opulent, and concentrated, with terrific notes of cassis, flowers, and violets, it packs ample fruit and texture, yet stays elegant and seamless. It’s a big step up from the Esprit de Pavie and has real depth and richness.
Boisé luxueux, exubérance du fruit, au nez comme en bouche. Le vin est ample, ambitieux, gras et plutôt riche, encore sur l’élevage mais dynamique.
With a distinct resemblance to its big brother, this second wine of Pavie reveals structure, ripe fruits and spice. You’ll find olives, plums and herbs emanating from the back end of this medium-bodied, approachable wine. This will be ready to drink upon release.
Warm, dark fig and blackberry compote flavors lead off here, backed by melted licorice notes and a solid shot of roasted apple wood on the finish. A youthful jumble today, but the pieces are there.—J.M.
