Pavie

Background

Pavie's biggest fan must be Robert Parker who has, since the 1998 vintage, (apart from 2002 (94 points)) rated these wines 95 and above. No mean feat when you consider no other Bordeaux wine has matched or bettered this achievement!

The no expense spared renovation of the Château is the pride and centre piece of Mr Perse's wine portfolio. The vines are spread out from the clayey soil on the plateau, on the limestone soils on the côte, and a small amount on the sandy soil at the bottom of the slope. The 32 hectares of vines consist of 60% Merlot, 30% Cabernet Franc and 10% Cabernet Sauvignon and yields have been reduced to 30hl/ha since Mr Perse took over with the winemaking assistance of world famous oenologist Michel Rolland.

Should this property be elevated to rank alongside Ausone and Cheval Blanc to become a Premier Grand Cru Classe A? Who can say? One thing is for sure; life is too short not to own a case of this wine and then you can judge for yourself!
