"Very ripe, but also very focused, with a distilled raspberry essence racing from start to finish, while extra licorice snap, blueberry coulis and plum pâte de fruit notes fill in the background. Long and velvety through the finish. A beautiful effort for the vintage.

"Another terrific success for the flagship estate (a 92-acre vineyard situated on the famed limestone and clay-rich slopes of Cote Pavie) of Chantal and Gerard Perse, the 2011 Pavie is composed of 70% Merlot, 20% Cabernet Franc and 10% Cabernet Sauvignon. The harvest took place between September 20-30, with final yields of a mere 28 hectoliters per hectare. The natural alcohol is 14.3%, and the 2011 may be the biggest, richest, most massive wine of the vintage. With thrilling levels of concentration, tremendous purity, high but sweet tannin, a skyscraper-like mouthfeel, and terrific intensity, depth and palate presence, this larger-than-life effort will require 5-8 years of cellaring, and should age effortlessly over the following 25-30 years.Barrel Sample: 93-95 Points"

"Fabulous aromas of blackberries and cassis. A purity of fruit here. Full body, with silky tannins. Powerful finish. Muscular for the vintage. Gorgeous. I like the brightness and clarity to it.

"Deep ruby. Brooding aromas of blackcurrant, violet and vanilla. Fine-grained and smooth, with lively red berry and dark plum flavors enlivened and extended by a mineral overlay. Not the most generous Pavie of recent years, but still a wine of remarkable richness in the context of the vintage. This will need plenty of time in bottle. Still, in 2011 I think Pavie-Decesse is its equal.Barrel Sample: 91-93 Points"
International Wine Cellar
"Here is a ripe and juicy wine that pushes forward with delicious blackberry fruits. There is a tense edge of acidity that then brings out denser tannins, but juiciness characterizes this wine.

In the fourth century, Chateau Pavie's slope was planted. Parcel after parcel - Pigasse, les domaines de la Sable, Pimpinelle, Larcis - the bulk was built and consolidated under the Pavie name. This lies all in one piece on the slope of the hill southeast of the town of Saint-Emilion. The buildings and the vineyard at Pavie are at three levels on the side of the slope. ...Read More About Chateau Pavie
