The estate

The origins of the estate go back a long way. Vines have been cultivated on the slopes of what is now Château Pavie since the 4th century. Owned by Chantal and Gérard Perse since March 1998, Château Pavie, Premier Grand Cru Classé "A," boasts one of the finest terroirs in Saint-Émilion.

Château Pavie is renowned for the structure and elegance of its wines, which are the result of a harvest that is contained within yields that are lower than the average for the appellation, in order to reveal all the nuances of this exceptional terroir.

The vineyard

Château Pavie 2022 is a Saint-Émilion wine made from a single 42-hectare vineyard. Situated to the south-east of the Saint-Émilion hillside, the vineyard is spread over three levels, with vines that are on average 34 years old. The "plateau" (85 metres above sea level) is composed of clay-limestone soil above asteriated limestone and the "mid-slope" (55 metres above sea level) is composed of fine-textured brown clay-limestone soil. The "foot of the hill" is made up of sandy/sandy-clay and sandy-gravel soils.

Particular attention is paid to the vineyard, part of which has been the subject of a replanting plan that includes raising the trellising to increase the leaf area, specific pruning according to the age of the vines, thinning and leaf removal.

Winemaking and ageing

Hand-picked and sorted. Vinification in temperature-controlled wooden vats. Malolactic fermentation is carried out in barrels, as is ageing (75% new barrels, 25% one-wine barrels).

Blend

Château Pavie 2022 is a blend of Merlot (52%), Cabernet Franc (30%) and Cabernet Sauvignon (18%).

100 points Jeb Dunnuck

Outer quote mark Pure perfection in a glass and unquestionably one of the great vintages for this cuvée, the 2015 Pavie is a blend of 60% Merlot, 22% Cabernet Franc, and the rest Cabernet Sauvignon that was brought up in 80% new French oak. Sharing some similarities with the 2009, this tour de force sports a saturated purple color as well as a sweet bouquet of crème de cassis, crushed rocks, white truffle, and licorice. Its oak is perfectly integrated and balanced by this wine’s massive fruit and structure. Full-bodied, deep, and superbly concentrated, with building tannins, it’s a massive wine by any measure, but what sets it apart is that it still glides across the palate and retains an incredible sense of purity, balance, and elegance. It’s drinking well today due to the vintage’s opulence, yet won’t hit prime time for another 5-10 years and I suspect will keep for upward of 50 years. Inner quote mark (10/2018)

Outer quote mark This is really something. Sort of speechless when I taste it. It shows evocative aromas of wet earth, oyster shell, dust, tile, blackberries and blueberries. Full body, ultra-fine tannins and a length and intensity that is so, so fine. A wine in perfect harmony. Complete. Hard not not to drink. Energetic and balanced. Inner quote mark (2/2018)

98 points Wine Advocate

Outer quote mark In 2015, the blend is 60% Merlot, 22% Cabernet Franc and 18% Cabernet Sauvignon, and the wine was matured 80% in new French oak. Deep garnet-purple in color, the 2015 Pavie is still sporting a bit of its oak to begin, giving way to a glorious nose of crushed black cherries, blackberries and mulberries plus hints of dried roses, stewed tea, unsmoked cigars and garrigue. The rich, concentrated, full-bodied palate delivers an incredible structure of very firm, very ripe tannins and a racy line of freshness cutting through the dense layers of perfumed black fruits and savory notions, finishing with epic length.
