A Bordeaux blend of 77% Cabernet Sauvignon, 13% Cabernet Franc, 8% Merlot and 2% Petit Verdot.
Almost black in color with a deep red edge, 2006 Les Pavots reveals a
profound bouquet of black cherry, licorice, black currant, blueberry
pie, and blackberry, combined with chocolate, vanilla, coffee, black
tea, subtle spice notes of cloves and cinnamon and its distinctive touch
of "garrigue." Very full-bodied, concentrated yet graceful, the wine
confirms the same rich, ripe fruit impressions on the palate with spice
and black truffle. The mouth feel is massive and round with silky tannins
and hints of mocha leading to a very long finish. Will benefit from
three years of cellaring and age gracefully for two decades or more.
