Winemaker Notes

Château Pavie has a deep purple color. The bouquet is redolent of black fruit, blackcurrant, and a hint of well-integrated oak. The mouthfeel is quite firm, and there is a great deal of substance there, underpinned by a tannic structure that bodes well for good ageing. The aftertaste is that of a very fine, but very young wine with tannin that obviously needs more time. However, 2001 Château Pavie is in no way dry, or unbalanced. It leaves a mouthwatering impression of freshness on the palate, a sure sign of very ripe grapes. This great wine will benefit greatly from gentle aeration (decanting and large glasses). It is still a bit too young to show most of what it has to offer, but for those of you who are impatient, it will nevertheless pair beautifully with jugged hare, roast glazed pork with spices, or an entrecôte à la bordelaise.

This Château Pavie will age for at least 8-12 years.

RP 96
Robert Parker's Wine Advocate
One of the candidates for wine of the vintage ... again, the 2001 Pavie, from a magnificent south-facing vineyard planted primarily on limestone soil, is a blend of 70% Merlot, 20% Cabernet Franc, and 10% Cabernet Sauvignon. After a six week maceration, it spent nearly 24 months in new oak prior to being bottled unfined and unfiltered. Some Bordeaux brokers think it might be even better than the 2000 Pavie, but I do not agree. The inky/ruby/purple-colored 2001 exhibits a tight but promising nose of crushed stones, a liqueur of blackberries, cherries, and black currants, and subtle smoke and licorice in the background. Powerful, with impressive elegance, fine harmony among its elements, a multi-layered texture, it has a finish that lasts for 50+ seconds. There is considerable tannin, but it is well-integrated. Give it 3-4 years, and drink it over the next two decades. A profound effort for the vintage, it is an example of a perfectionist proprietor pushing the envelope of quality.

Wine Spectator
Powerful, with loads of smoke, vanilla, berry and chocolate character. Full-bodied, with velvety tannins and a long, caressing finish. Modern and rich. Well-done. Best after 2008. 7,500 cases made

Chateau Pavie, France
Chateau Pavie Winery Image
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.

Since 1998, Chantal and Gérard Perse have owned this estate, which boasts the largest vineyard of all Premier Grand Cru Classés in Saint-Emilion. The old fermentation cellar has given way to twenty temperature-controlled wooden vats, and the quarries have been replaced by a modern aging cellar.
