1971 Château Pavie

Community Tasting Note


83 Points

Saturday, August 15, 2009 - It's always fun to drink such a wine even if it no longer possesses the same qualities as in its prime years (not even sure if it was ever a great wine). Still showing some colour depth though throwing a lot of sediment. The nose is empty of fruit or maybe with some suggestions of ripe cherries together with damp earth and a touch of pepper. The palate develops in the same lines :absence of fruit, suggestion of earth and pepper. I was surprised to find some edgy tannins dominating over the light body and giving a sour tone the the medium finish. I believe the golden days are long gone but still it was fun to open such a bottle.
