Château la Clusière Red Bordeaux Blend St. Émilion Grand Cru 2000

Winemaker's Notes:

100 points Robert Parker:Now extinct, as this tiny 2.6-acre micro-vineyard was absorbed into Chateau Pavie, the 2000 La Clusiere (100% Merlot) was bestowed a perfect score seven years ago, and I see no reason to change that as it remains a monumental effort. Aromas of creme de cassis, blueberry liqueur, charcoal, licorice, and graphite are followed by a stunningly rich, full-bodied, elegant, pure, gentle giant of a wine. Approaching full maturity, it should age effortlessly for another 30+ years. Kudos to proprietor Gerard Perse. (Jun 2010)

The history of Pavie Decesse is inseparable from that of Pavie, and vines were planted here in the 4th century. Located on Saint-Emilion's limestone plateau, Pavie Decesse was part of Pavie itself until the late 19th century when Ferdinand Bouffard, owner of Pavie since 1885, decided to consolidate several plots of Pavie to form a separate estate. At the end of the First World War, Ferdinand Bouffard sold the vineyard to monsier Marzelle, who was the owner when the chateau was given Grand Cru Classe status in the first classification of Saint-Emilion estates in 1954. After M. Marzelle's death in 1970, Jean-Paul Valette, who already owned Chateau Pavie, was entrusted with managing Pavie Decesse, which he purchased in 1990. The estate was purchased by Gerard Perse in 1997. Read less
