Peter Michael Les Pavots 2007
Almost black in color with a deep red edge, the 2007 Les Pavots reveals a profound bouquet of blueberry pie, black cherry, licorice, blackcurrant and blackberry. Supporting notes of chocolate, vanilla, coffee, black tea, subtle spice notes of clove and cinnamon as well as its signature touch of "garrigue" complete the bouquet. On the palate, very powerful and concentrated, yet graceful, the wine confirms the same rich, ripe fruit impressions 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. This vintage will benefit from two years of cellaring and age gracefully for as long as four decades.
