1997 Château Pavie

Community Tasting Note


80 Points

Tuesday, September 16, 2008 - Appearance: a bit muddy over two bottles (had two bottles in one afternoon). Nose: plummy earth. Taste: a bit watery, slightly sour on the finish. Taste is of plums and damp earth - there is some complexity here, but only slightly more than a vin de table. 2 dimensions rather than 3. No follow through - thin. Was expecting a more rounded and balanced effort. This wine must be drunk now - it has really hit the down slope. Overall not bad as a wine, but dissapointing given the estate.
