Product description

Terroir: Typical of the Saint-Emilion limestone plateau composed of clay-limestone soil on an asteriated limestone subsoil. Located at an altitude of approximately 85 meters above the Dordogne River. - Terroir called « milieu de côte » (middle of the slope) located approximately 55 meters above the Dordogne and composed of very fine brown limestone. Average age of the vines 43 years 

Vinification: The way Château Pavie is fermented depends on the vintage. It is kept on the skins for three weeks in 20 temperature-controlled wooden vats. Malolactic fermentation in barrel and the wine is aged, depending on the vintages in 70% to 100% new oak, for 18 - 32 months.

Grape varieties: 65% Merlot / 25% Cabernet Franc / 10% Cabernet Sauvignon

Tasting notes: The color is an enticingly dense, inky black. On the nose, the wine shows well-defined aromas both varied and appealing. A fruity style of blueberry, black currant and blackberry has a focused, lightly cooked character. Barrel aging contributes spicy notes for a touch of nobility. Firm concentration appears in the mid-palate, complemented by a very fine texture of young, elegant tannins; a pleasant finish signals its youth. Give this wine some time—this massive, very generous Pavie is just hitting its stride. This terroir is truly unique in Saint-Emilion; one appreciates the quality of the Pavie plateau when tasting such cool vintages.
