The Story

Saint Emilion Grand Cru er 1 grand Cru Classé /Château Pavie has diverse terroirs:
- Terroir typical of the Saint Emilion limestone plateau composed of claylimestone soil on an asteriated limestone subsoil. Located at an altitude of approximately 85 metres above the Dordogne River
- Terroir called “milieu de côte” (middle of the slope) located approximately 55 metres above the Dordogne and composed of very fine brown limestone. Many plots have been re-planted. The vines are trained high to increase the leaf canopy. Pruned to six spurs for old vines and 2 for young ones, green harvesting, leaf thinning, as well as picking and sorting by hand.

FERMENTATION :

37 hectares
60% merlot, 30% cabernet franc,

Written Notes

The 2000 Pavie was, as Josh had said a couple weeks prior when one was opened at one of our auctions, ‘not bad.’ The nose was dusty, spicy and cedary with a touch of vanilla. The palate was rich, big and long with impressive length. Quite meaty, there were also lots of coffee flavors here, but like I said, it wasn’t bad. I could actually polish it and its cinnamon-y French toast flavors off. As a side note, the ’05 out of barrel, however, I found gross, so perhaps it, too, needs to scratch a seven-year itch 

  • 94p
I get quite concerned about such an evening when there is a wine, one should not analyze, not to suffer a bit to drink, do not take clever hat on, but just can slurp in big mouthfuls. Pavie 2000 is floating pleasure, bold, creamy, rich and fresh - the nose, all goods from the calcareous soil and the sugar-sweet Merlot grapes. On the palate, it exhibits a massive display of richness and extract, yet with pinpoint delineation and vibrancy as well as a 60+ second finish.
