    February 23, 2019 - from magnum
    nose-licorice
    mouth - rich, ripe, almost mocha infused, and a touch raisin-y, however the big surripe fruit is nicely balanced by its refreshing juiciness. Lots of power here. My sense is the 03 pavie from standard bottle size has already peaked.

    February 19, 2019 - I was expecting much more new world flavors because of the producer and vintage. A lot of raisin in this wine with dark fruits. Very young (yeah, still) wine but you can drink it today or in 5 years without any issues. Very elegant, smooth, with a typical Bordeaux nose mixed with a little sunshine. Will I buy at $300+ ? No. It is a very good wine but nothing quite unique or extremely memorable. It would be a good value at $150, but north of that I can name much better options.

    January 17, 2019 - Flickinger Customer Appreciation Tasting (Casino Club - Chicago IL): Tasting from magnum, brief note. Very ripe and somewhat jammy, but clearly well balanced with very good length and even better length. Exceeded my expectations given vintage and Pavie style.

    January 17, 2019 - 2003 Bordeaux (Piccolino, Exchange Square, London): Nose shows ripe dark fruit, plum, vanilla. A touch of raisin. Palate is full bodied, soft and voluptuous with ripe dark fruit, a touch of alcoholic warmth, moderate acidity and a good length fruity finish. Interesting if not overly enjoyable.

    January 17, 2019 - 2003 Bordeaux (Piccolino, Liverpool Street Stn, London): Dark fruited nose. Richer and thicker. A sense of a tad more alcohol here. Full but actually quite smooth. Not gloopy. There’s a touch of freshness on the mid palate to finish. ***1/2
