1971 Château Pavie

Community Tasting Note


Friday, November 21, 2008 - Still-healthy medium weight claret colour at the core, but showing layers of age at the rim. On the nose smoke/tobacco to the fore, with fruit vaguely in support. On swirling there's an agreeable sweeter facet to the nose, bringing together the aged & bramble-like fruit a touch of caramel and together quite vibrant.

On the palate it's pleasantly mid-weight, with subtle fruit, a touch of earthiness and refreshing but not excessive acidity. Some complexity but let's say the complexity isn't bursting at the seams...

A more than pleasant wine, fading, but fairly interesting and certainly enjoyable to drink
