2002 Château Pavie

Community Tasting Note


91 Points

Thursday, December 8, 2011 - Decanted for 90 minutes before drinking with grilled pork chops. Aroma has a bit of mustiness to it, but has some tobacco, mushroom and wood smell, as well as blueberry and blakcberry. On the palate, mushroom comes through, as well as the tobacco. The fruit is quite restrained in the taste, but still has the dark fruits in the background. Still quite a bit of tannin on it, even after 2 hours in the decanter. There seemed to be a tartness that developed on the finish after 3 hours, almost like tart cherries. Very enjoyable wine, but the finish that developed did make me wonder about where this is heading.
