La Roseede Pavie 2010

Winemaker's Notes:

"Along with several other Medoc first-growths as well as Ausone in St.-Emilion and possibly Petrus and Lafleur in Pomerol, few estates have such a record for consistent quality as Gerard Perse’s Chateau Pavie. ... Since Perse acquired this estate in 1998, most Pavies have possessed off the charts richness and the 2010 is no different. It also reveals an opaque purple color, abundant notes of roasted coffee, blackberries, cassis, full-bodied power and sensational density, texture and length. There is also a boatload of tannin, so do not expect this 2010 to provide near-term consumption. Somewhat reminiscent of the 2005 in its freshness, precision and intensity, it requires 7-10 years of cellaring and should keep for 3-4 decades thereafter...95-98+" WA 05/11 "Very powerful. It sneaks up on you. It doesn’t show its strength at first but then takes off with excellent ripe fruit, spices, chocolate and nuts. So long and exciting. I prefer the style to the 2009 by a hair…96-97." JS 4/11.

Château Pavie-Macquin:
Terroirs are the expression of a place, a witness to history. Infinitely rich and varied, their complexity is expressed through their biological, geological, topographical and climatic characteristics. Precious and fragile, they are the greatest thing that nature offers us and they cannot be imitated. Their quality is an irreplaceable ingredient in the production of great wines. To produce gr...

Terroirs are the expression of a place, a witness to history. Infinitely rich and varied, their complexity is expressed through their biological, geological, topographical and climatic characteristics. Precious and fragile, they are the greatest thing that nature offers us and they cannot be imitated. Their quality is an irreplaceable ingredient in the production of great wines. To produce great wines in the image of a terroir: the idea is simple but the practice requires patience and humility. Pavie Macquin, this eponymous chateau, finds the key to its history in one man, Albert Macquin (1852-1911). It is to him that Saint Emilion owes the idea of grafting vines onto rootstocks, thereby saving the region from ruin by phylloxera. Henri Enjalbert wrote, “During more than thirty years, Albert Macquin was the master of the transformation of the vineyards of Saint Emilion”. The current owners of the chateau are his grandchildren: Benoit and Bruno Corre, Marie-Jacques Charpentier and their children. They have shown, like their ancestor, a great attachment to this admirable terroir. Read less

This is really gorgeous with a flamboyant display of spice warm linzer torte blueberry and plum confiture aromas giving way to fleshy dark fruit and anise notes. Never overly weighty with great cut and purity on the finish thanks to a superstrong graphite note. Shows power precision and drive. Wine Spectator.

70% merlot 20% cabernet franc 10% cabernet sauvignon. Aged in 80% new French oak and 20% one-year-old barrels. Produced from a 37 Hectare mid-hillside vineyard from vines that average 45 years of age. The nose is reminiscent of a fresh raspberry pie also revealing chocolate coffee and mineral notes. Seamless structure and well-defined minerality are the hallmarks of this wine and this vintage stays true to form. Full bodied and concentrated supple tannins lead to a tremendous silky textu

Give this a few years to come together fully and begin drinking around 2018. John Sweeney.

Saturated deep ruby-red. High-toned superripe aromas of black raspberry cassis and caramel. Then dense velvety and huge in the mouth with great power and chew to the thick flavors of cassis raspberry and crushed chalk. This improbably thick wine boasts terrific sweetness but its huge building tannins will need a good decade of cellaring to harmonize. Interestingly Gerard Perse picked this fruit in mid-October yet the wine has been even higher in alcohol in some recent vintages. 9
