External Reviews for Chateau Pavie 6
Super dark and saturated an opaque core pushes to a magenta rim. A powerful perfume of black and blue fruit opens alongside ample underlying soil notes with additional crushed acacia blossoms fresh pavement and creosote. This reveals good aromatic development since the first three tastings of this wine. The palate is settling down from major primary fruit and mocha wood notes - this taster is now than it s ever been. This showing now exposes what I knew was there all along as the wine sheds
I love the purity of fruit in this wine showing perfectly ripe blackberry blueberry and raspberry on the nose. Complex and full-bodied with hints of new oak and wonderfully polished tannins that caress the palate. Has a long long finish. This is not the blockbuster it was from barrel but rather a complete balanced and gorgeous red. Best after 2015 Wine Spectator.
Saturated, deep ruby-red. Knockout nose combines blackberry, minerals, crushed rock, truffle, vanillin oak and flowers; showing none of the porty quality of the sample I tried last year. A hugely concentrated essence of wine, offering an incredible combination of sweetness, vibrancy and precision of fruit, thanks to strong acidity and powerful underlying minerality. The chewy tannins are totally buffered by the wine's material on the explosive back end. This wine has it all! Compared to the Pavie-Decesse, which essentially comes from a single block of old vines on limestone, this wine has clearly benefited by being an assemblage of soil types, with fruit from the foot of the slope contributing texture and richness. The 2005 Pavie should easily last for three or four decades.
Elegant and refined. Floral and fruity. with roses and blackberries. Medium-bodied, with fine tannins and a fruity, chocolate aftertaste. Best after 1999.
70% Merlot 20% Cabernet Franc 10% Cabernet Sauvignon. Black center fades to purple with a bright ruby rim. Notes of flowers over mostly blueberry but also raspberry aromas followed by hints of sweet strawberry and wet clay. Bright cherry fruit milk chocolate and sweet tea balance well with the huge juicy tannins that pull at the teeth. Long spicy fruit finish. Excellent overall structure. This is a monster! Mike Supple.
Black in color. Aromas of crushed berry, chocolate and licorice follow through to a full body, with a chewy, velvety palate of ripe tannins. Long and very flavorful. A real mouthful. Best after 2015.
