Tasting Notes

A blend of 52 percent Merlot, 41 percent Cabernet Sauvignon and 7 percent Petit Verdot, this wine is just amazingly seductive - It’s a wine that plays to the heart rather than the head and it was one of the most immediately delicious wines of the whole vintage; The tannins seem to hide away in the core of plum and blackcurrant fruit flavours, but don't be fooled, this is a hugely structured wine and will benefit from long term cellaring. James Griswood - Wine Buyer.

Expert Opinion

What our expert says

18/20 Jancis Robinson

In the press...

Bottled the week before I arrived, the 2009 Pavie appears to have barely budged since I tasted it two years ago. Many experts consider this phenomenal terroir to be nearly as great as that of Ausone. Made from a classic blend of 60-70% Merlot, 20-25% Cabernet Franc and the rest Cabernet Sauvignon, this inky/blue/purple-colored blockbuster reveals wonderful notes of blackberries, crushed rocks, roasted meats, spring flowers, cedar, blueberries, graphite and a hint of vanillin - With extravagant fruit and high extract as well as a hint of minerality, this structured, massively intense effort is typical of all the luxurious, perfect or nearly perfect Pavies produced under the Perse regime (which began in 1998) - While built for 40-50 years of cellaring, the softness of the vintage and its flamboyant style is slightly less apparent in the 2009 Pavie than in some of the other Perse wines. Anticipated maturity: 2020-2050+.

Regional info

St. Emilion is on the right bank of the Gironde. It is one of Bordeaux's largest producing appellations, producing more wine than much of the left bank put together! St Emilion itself is a beautiful, World Heritage Site town, perched on top of a steep limestone and clay escarpment where most of the area's best vineyards are also located. The soils here usually have a higher proportion of clay - something which helps explain why the wines typically are made more from Merlot and Cabernet Franc than the Cabernet Sauvignon wines of the Medoc. However, as noted above, Chateau Figeac is a famous exception to this rule The classification system of St. Emilion is notoriously complex and often controversial. The very best wines are classed either as "St Emilion Premier Grand Cru Classé" or "St Emilion Grand Cru Classé". Don't confuse the latter with the lesser "St Emilion Grand Cru"
