(Château Pavie (St Emilion)) A dark and glossy wine, with an electric-crimson rim. The nose has some dried fruit character to it, but not the pruney, overdone suggestions found in the rest of the Perse range. There are cleaner, more smoky edges to the fruit here. It certainly has a big, ripely tannic palate, showing a huge tannic structure but it is also a huge wine in terms of fruit and substance, with a rich and creamy palate. There is some welcome acidity here. A bruising style, with a firm yet warm character, and showing a massive grip in the finish. And yet it all seems to work.
