Tasting Notes and Scores

Wine Advocate

A real sleeper effort from the Perse family, the 2004 Pavie has a dense, bluish purple color and a wonderful, sweet kiss of blackberry, licorice, spice box and roasted herbs. The wine is rich, deep, full-bodied and absolutely remarkable for the vintage. This is certainly a candidate for one of the wines of the year and seems still relatively youthful and promising. Drink it over the next 20 years.

Tasted at the Fine Wine Experience’s Pavie vertical. The Pavie ’04 has a gorgeous bouquet that is showing much better definition than the 2003. Very pure with luscious blackberry, date, liquorice and cassis aromas that soar from the glass. Very well balanced on the palate with a slight hardness on the tannins, but there is good acidity here, very dense to the point of being almost foursquare on the finish that lacks some complexity and has a brutish quality that is distracting at the moment. Tasted June 2010.

Dark, youthful red; red fruit sweet to smell; concentrated, firmly tannic, crisply ripe, red fruit cored wine; plenty of flavour here within a firmly dry tannin texture; deep, ripe and tasty, but also new oak, new wave tannic too; a fairly chewy texture behind plenty of flavour; but you have to be happy with the chewy texture … a question of taste! 2016-26+ [M Schuster March 2014]

This is a beauty, with the singed apple wood and juniper notes fully melded with the core of lush raspberry and blackberry confiture flavors. The edges are rounded off but the spine still drives through. Ends with graphite and ganache accents and a mouthwatering hint.--Non-blind Pavie vertical (March 2017). JM

Good deep fresh ruby. Vibrant, complex aromas of blackberry, violet, licorice, espresso and minerals. Concentrated, spicy and fresh, with lovely clarity and lift to its penetrating dark fruit and mineral flavors. Densely packed and downright palate-staining for 2004 without any impression of heaviness. This has plenty of fat for the year and finishes impressively dense, with ripe, building tannins. Owner Gerard Perse notes that Pavie has the benefit of three different soil types, while Pavie-Decesse is a single block of old vines on calcaire Thus Pavie is always more complex, he adds, and the portion of younger vines at Pavie brings a fruity quality that's sometimes missing in Pavie-Decesse.
