The 2003 Pavie (7,080 cases; 13.5% alcohol) is closest in style to the 2000, but slightly more evolved and exotic. Its dense plum/purple color is accompanied by an extraordinary perfume of charcoal, creme de cassis, melted licorice, expresso roast, and blackberries. The wine, which hits the palate with a dramatic minerality, comes across like a hypothetical blend of limestone liqueur intermixed with black and red fruits. With massive depth, richness, and body, this tannic 2003 should be forgotten for 4andndash;5 years, then enjoyed over the next four decades. The integration of acidity, tannin, and wood is flawless, and the wine is incredibly pure, rich, and intense.
I love the purity of fruit in this wine, with 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. Long, long finish. This is not the blockbuster it was from barrel, but rather a complete, balanced and gorgeous red. Best after 2015.
Superripe and almost jammy. Very New World on the nose but impressive; Bordeaux-like on the palate. Berries, raspberries and strawberries. Hint of wood. Full-bodied, with ripe and round tannins and a long finish. Chewy. Got to like this.
Elegant and refined. Floral and fruity. with roses and blackberries. Medium-bodied, with fine tannins and a fruity, chocolate aftertaste. Best after 1999.
This tremendous terroir has been brought back to life over the last 15 years by Nicolas Thienpont and Stephane Derenoncourt. Its 37-acre vineyard, planted in deep clay and limestone soils, is composed... Robert Parker's Wine Advocate. A Bordeaux Blend wine from Bordeaux in France. 2003 Pavie-Macquin 750ml
Both vintages of the Pavie have been pushed for size: the rsquo;99 falls into a black and chunky restlessness, exposing its alcohol in an austere finish; the rsquo;98 responds with a bold a and sassy fruit, the super-delicious wet dream of cult winemakers around the world. But here in St.-Emilion, itrsquo;s not just fruit (nor is it just oak, though the oak is still primary three days after the wine was opened). Pavie has the ancient land to back it up with a provocative grip, a glorious spice, a nobility to the line of fruit flavor. As heady as the red spice and chocolate-dark fruit may be, it retains a focused intensity that holds the attention of the palate and draws it towards elegance. Itrsquo;s about as delicious as they come.
This 92-acre vineyard, which enjoys an impeccable southern orientation, is composed of limestone on the upper slopes, clay and limestone in the middle, and sand and clay at the base. Proprietor Gerard Perse, who has done a brilliant job since acquiring the estate in 1998, continues to push the envelope of quality to higher and higher heights. Planted with 70% Merlot, 20% Cabernet Franc, and 10% Cabernet Sauvignon, the grapes receive kid glove treatment with hand-harvesting into small plastic lugs, two triage tables, and aging for 28 months in 100% new oak that is purchased in advance, then air-dried and coopered according to Perse s specifications. In short, the man is a perfectionist, and the quality of all the estates he owns has soared dramatically.
