    June 12, 2022 - By the glass. Another text booked example of an iron fist in a silk glove. Fine aromas that quickly envelop you. Only a splash from a just one bottle.
    On the palate an undeniable depth, on the one hand is intense and powerful and on the other smooth and elegant, sliding like a silk handkerchief down the throat. At this point, it does not surprise anyone except for its regularity in excellence. Something similar to Vieux Château Certain in the Pomerol. I always compare them (in my mind).

    Por copas. Otro ejemplo de libro de puño de hierro en guante de seda. Finos aromas que rápidamente te envuelven. Sólo un ligero chorrito de una única botella.
    Al paladar una innegable profundidad, de una parte es intenso y potente y de la otra suave y elegante, deslizándose como un pañuelo de seda por la garganta. A estas alturas, no sorprende a nadie salvo por su regularidad en la excelencia. Algo similar a Vieux Château Certain en el Pomerol. Siempre los comparo en mi cabeza.

    March 6, 2022 - To me this is the representation of almost the perfection. One of my favourites.

    July 27, 2021 - Vice Versa weekend and dinner: Locked, loaded, and tight as a drum, the 2016 Pavie is SUCH an infant all it needed was a pacifier and its blankie to get it all set for its requisite hibernation for the next 15 years. The precision on this wine is absolutely unmatched, as is the barely budding sense of perfectly honed and pure fruit. But holy hotcakes and caviar, this sinewy boxer is all business in its current state. Academically, it’s absolutely worth experiencing, but it is nothin’ but needles on the finish, even with hours and hours of air. All that said, I absolutely loved it! I loved it in a more scholastic way to be sure, primarily because if any wine on the planet has the potential to be a gladiator after two decades have passed, its this Pavie. I wasn’t worthy to try this wine yet, but was grateful to have been given the opportunity to check it out. It’s an fistful of fruit just waiting to cluster-bomb your palate. Hold the 2016 Pavie until they do a reboot of “Top Gun 2040: A Space Odyssey.” 95-97+ points.

    September 26, 2019 - Inky in color, the wine is powerful, dense, concentrated, full-bodied and packed to the gills with its unique blend of flowers, crushed stone, smoke, licorice, espresso and very ripe plums and black cherries. Thick and rich, with a finish that does not want to quit, this attention-seeking beauty demands at least 10-15 years in the cellar before it's ready for prime time drinking.
