1979 Château Pavie

Community Tasting Note


90 Points

Sunday, April 13, 2008 - Stood bottle up about two hours before opening. Cork was half saturated, but intact. Not surprisingly, a fair bit of sediment on the bottle and following decanting. Color has faded down to ligh ruby, but not bricked. Very little nose to speak of, which made me worry that this had turned, but the taste is still there. Not a ton of fruit, mind you, but enough. Black currant, leather, gravel, a hint of oak. Drank with brie and cheddar cheeses, apples and crackers. Not a 'knock your socks off' bottle, but a good experience nonetheless. If you have one, I'd drink it, because I doubt it's got a lot left.
