2003 Château Pavie

Community Tasting Note

88 Points

Thursday, December 13, 2012 - Dinner at Goosefoot (Goosefoot, Chicago IL): Nose: Very big nose with extracted tones of black fruits, black cherry compote, spices, black tar, and cedary oak tones. It's rich, but with depth and a larger quality to it.

Taste: Full bodied, but smoother than I would've imagined with tones of black cherries, oak, spices, and black fruits.

Overall: This is a full throttled wine, but there is a balance in its largeness. While the oak is prominent, it doesn't fully take over the nose or palate.

It was so fruit driven for the first 10 years, that it was hard to imagine anything but that. Many people are starting to see the other components coming into the picture now, and this is just the starting point. I will drink in about 5 more years and hope for the best of both worlds.
