Of the three reds, this was it for me. The Cheval Blanc, Gracia and Pavie all pared beautifully. Similar in many ways, just done better. The Pavie nose has floral notes and earthly under tones on the nose. First sip, more depth, more fruit, more concentration and definition. Sipping one, than the other, I'm amazed how these three entice the palate and play off each other. But without a doubt, the Pavie packs the nose and delights me the most. My friend Bela prefers the Cheval Blanc. His son, the Pavie.
Power, concentration, intensity, ripe fruits and rocks make up the true blend for this wine. The wine is rich, dense and has a long life to look forward to. I know some people do not like the wine, but I love it! It's definitely better with an hour or two of air.
big, jammy, chewy, blackberries, still a baby in the bottle fresh, perfect acidity tried a sip or two and decided to decant to let open up delicious not sure how other Cellartracker reviewers has issues with this wine. it is spectacular. i expect they had storage issues (one said like "see thru" pinot in the glass?? this wine is dark, opaque...no "see thru" so not sure what happened to their wine.) this is a great wine with many years (decades) of life left enjoy!
