  • Neal Martin, April 2015, Score: 94-96

    The Château Pavie 2014 is a blend of 60% Merlot, 22% Cabernet Franc and 18% Cabernet Sauvignon picked between 3 and 10 October, a lower percentage of Merlot as the vineyard moves towards more Cabernet in the blend. Matured in 80% new oak and 20% one-year old, it has an opulent and delineated bouquet that is heads above the Bellevue-Mondotte. The palate is medium-bodied with fine tannin, the Cabernet in sync with the Merlot, silky smooth in the mouth with a plush but not cloying finish. The mineralité shows through nicely, partly because of that higher percentage of Cabernet. This is a different style of Pavie compared to previous vintages and the team were clear in their emphasis on more Cabernet and less oak. The result is a Pavie that really exploits its propitious terroir and a wine that even compared to Gérard Perse's other 2014s, demonstrates more complex, more class and classicism. This is one of the standout wines in Saint Emilion.

  • Antonio Galloni, April 2015, Score: 93-96+

    The 2014 Pavie is magnificent. Silky and finessed to the core, the 2014 Pavie captures the essence of this site, but with more restraint and silkiness than is often the case and less overt oak influence. Raspberry jam, wild flowers, mint and new leather are all finely-knit, but it is the wine's perfume, aromatic nuance and overall balance that elevate it in 2014. The blend is 60% Merlot, 22% Cabernet Franc and 18% Cabernet Sauvignon. The 2014 spent 36 days on the skins, followed by malolactic fermentation in barrel. New oak is 80%.

  • James Suckling, March 2015, Score: 93-94

    A firm and juicy wine with very pretty dark fruit, mineral and floral character. Full body, round tannins and a fresh finish.

  • Decanter, April 2015, Score: 94

    60% Merlot, 22% Cabernet Franc, 18% Cabernet Sauvignon. More to the British taste with all that Cabernet (a record for the Cabernet Sauvignon). Long and linear with plenty of freshness. Firmly structured but a touch more finesse than in the past. Saline note on the finish. Drink: 2022-2038

  • Matthew Jukes, May 2015, Score: 17.5++

    (60 Merlot, 22 Cabernet Franc, 18 Cabernet Sauvignon) | 80% new oak. | 14.2% alc. There is much more fruit in evidence here versus Bellevue-Mondotte (from the same stable) and this makes for a far more enjoyable wine. It is still very sour and bold on the oak and tannins, but there is some charm in among the muscle and brawn. I often find Pavie very hard work with oppressive oak and tannin and Amarone-like fruit but given 15 years minimum to soften this wine might well balance out.

  • Jancis Robinson, April 2015, Score: 17+

    34 hl/ha. 60% Merlot, 22% Cabernet Franc, 18% Cabernet Sauvignon (average age 47 years). 80% new oak. Nose needs to be coaxed out of the glass. Thick and much more athletic than the other wines. You can really see the terroir here. Lively proper freshness as well as great intensity and ambition. There is a perceptible difference between this and the other Perse wines that seem to have too much make-up. Long and tense and not too much sweetness. Still a bit dry on the end. But very long and reverberant. Masses of energy here. 14.22% Drink 2028-2045

  • Wine Spectator, April 2015, Score: 94-97

    A beauty in the making, with gloriously pure boysenberry, raspberry and plum flavors, ample yet thoroughly integrated grip, and lithe acidity that lets the finish flow with an unencumbered feel. Offers chalky acidity.

It is known for certain that the first vines planted in St.Emilion were planted at Pavie and Ausone in the 4th century. Spanning some 37 hectares of land, and having gained a Premier Grand Cru Classé B status in the 1953 reclassification, the estate was bought by Gérard Perse in 1998.The Pavie terroir offers a variety of favourable winegrowing features: meagre soil, excellent south facing aspect, good natural drainage and a naturally cold resistant topography. Varieties grown are 60% Merlot, 30% Cabernet Franc, and 10% Cabernet Sauvignon - all matched to their complementary soils and with an average age of 43 years. Massive investment has created one of the most modern wineries in the region and wines that elicit rave reviews from certain circles...(Parker anyone??)Read less

Region

St Emilion

South of Pomerol lies the medieval, perched village of St Emilion. Surrounding St Emilion are vines that produce round, rich and often hedonistic wines. Despite a myriad of soil types, two main ones dominate - the gravelly, limestone slopes that delve down to the valley from the plateau and the valley itself which is comprised of limestone, gravel, clay and sand. Despite St Emilion's popularity today, it was not until the 1980s to early 1990s that attention was brought to this region. Robert Parker, the famous wine critic, began reviewing their Merlot-dominated wines and giving them hefty scores. The rest is history as they say. Similar to the Médoc, there is a classification system in place which dates from 1955 and outlines several levels of quality. These include its regional appellation of St Emilion, St Emilion Grand Cru, St Emilion Grand Cru Classé and St Emilion Premier Grand Cru Classé, which is further divided into "A" (Ausone and Cheval Blanc) and "B" (including Angélus, Canon, Figeac and a handful of others). To ensure better accuracy, the classification is redone every 10 years enabling certain châteaux to be upgraded or downgraded depending on on the quality of their more recent vintages.
