Critical Acclaim

"Very sleek and primal, with mouthcoating boysenberry and plum sauce notes pushed by extra fig, ganache and toasted spice. Long and velvety through the finish, with a depth and mouthfeel that sets this apart. An impressive effort.
Barrel Sample: 92-95 Points"

"The 2011 Pavie Decesse exhibits an inky/purple color along with notes of crushed chalk, black raspberries, blackberries, licorice, charcoal and toasty oak. Full-bodied, thick and unctuous (atypical for this vintage) with high tannin, this cuvee had just come out of malolactic fermentation when I tasted it, which undoubtedly accounts for its primary, infantile showing. Nevertheless, it is loaded, multidimensional and impressive, and will require 6-8 years of cellaring. It should keep for 25-30 years.
Barrel Sample: 92-94 Points"

"This is wonderful on the nose with floral, blackberry and blue berry aromas. Full and very silky with a long finish. This was very late harvested around the third week of October. Excellent wine for the vintage.
Barrel Sample: 93-94 Points"

"Bright ruby. Enticing nose of crystallized blackberry, violet and minerals. Pure and vibrant on the palate, with mineral-driven blackcurrant and blackberry flavors dominating. Finishes sweet, creamy and very long. One of the best wines of the vintage; competent winemaking aside, Pavie-Decesse benefits from amazing, first-rate terroir and that advantage is never more apparent than in challenging vintages like 2011.
Barrel Sample: 91-93 Points"
