The 1999 Pavie is a candidate for "wine of the vintage". It boasts an opaque ruby/purple color in addition to gorgeous aromas of crushed minerals, smoke, licorice, cherry liqueur, and black currants. The wine is exceptionally pure and multilayered, with stunning texture and overall balance. The tannin level suggests 3-4 years of cellaring is warranted; it should age gracefully for 25+ years. If readers are wondering why Pavie has become so much better under the administration of Chantal and Gerard Perse, keep in mind that yields are one-third of what they were under the previous owners.

Delivers complex, yet subtle, aromas of sweet tobacco, blackberry, green coffee bean and dried flowers. Full-bodied, with a deep and subtle palate that shows wonderful density of fruit and impressive balance. It lasts very long on the finish-and what... Wine Spectator.

...Highly nuanced nose combines currant, minerals, earth, coffee and mocha. Silky, suave and consistent from start to finish, with sweet, burnished flavors of currant, minerals and tobacco. Complex and flamboyant. Finishes very long and ripe, with lu... Stephen Tanzers IWC. A Bordeaux Blend wine from Bordeaux in France. 1999 Pavie 6000ml

Winemaker's Notes:

Blend of 70% Merlot, 20% Cabernet Franc, and 10% Cabernet Sauvignon. After a six week maceration, it spent nearly 24 months in new oak prior to being bottled unfined and unfiltered. The inky/ruby/purple-colored 1999 exhibits a tight but promising nose of crushed stones, a liqueur of blackberries, cherries, and black currants, and subtle smoke and licorice in the background. Powerful, with impressive elegance, fine harmony among its elements, a multi-layered texture, it has a finish that lasts for 50+ seconds. There is considerable tannin, but it is well-integrated. Give it 3-4 years, and drink it over the next two decades. A profound effort for the vintage, it is an example of a perfectionist proprietor pushing the envelope of quality.
