  • not improving with age. It's hard for me to see this going anywhere. They 'pushed' this wine in a crappy vintage to make it into something, and turned it into a Stepford Wife. Price is way out of whack with value ... an obvious problem for most of Bordeaux anyway. Just really hard to buy Bordeaux these days unless you either have unlimited funds or just stubborn.

  • This is drinking very well - integrated and full bodied. Still has youthfulness and strength in the finish (a little heat still there) - decanted for an hour. Tannins 7/10 - but not overpowering at all - classic french with a touch of fruitiness in the front end palate.

    Looking back on my last tasting note - I assume this must have softened over the past 2 years or maybe the decanting and this bottle was just a little softer and aged.

  • Tasted at the Chateau. It is still too young right now, but has all the elements to become an outstanding wine with further ageing. Very well integrated and complex.

  • Väldigt fruktdrivet i stilen. Mörk mogen frukt, blåbär, kaffe, choklad, violer och lite tjära. Har trots den här kraftfulla frukten en väldigt fin syra och tanniner som nästan kan balansera upp det. Är väl maffigt i detta läge men kan mycket väl bli helt magiskt med riktigt mycket tid.
    Har druckit en del unga Pavie på sista tiden och tycker nog att oavsett årgång så är de lite för mycket. Men det är möjligt att det med tiden visar sig att de är helt rätt på det, men vi får väl se.

    (Chateau Pavie (St Emilion)) A slightly darker purple-crimson hue than the preceding wines, and on the nose a density of Merlot fruit which mixes the characteristics of spicy, dark-fruited cake with dried plums. Not pruney though, there is a fresh fruit character to the intensity. Great creamy presence on the start, revealing more structure through the middle, but at all times the flesh and sweetness of the wine keeps the ripe, peppery tannins at bay. Plenty of the desired acidity too, There is definitely plenty of interest provided here, and the composition is very fine. Too forceful to be described as silky but the integration of texture and tannin is still admirable. Very long, upright, structured finish too. Excellent wine.
