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: Youthfulness characterizes this 2011 Pavie, with a black color reminiscent of Burlat cherries. There are abundantly intense, concentrated fruit aromas like crushed fresh black currant, along with fine spices such as nutmeg and cinnamon; additional notes from barrel aging continue to be felt. This is a very young wine displaying power and concentration, with a generous character which will emerge with time. A good future awaits this fresh and balanced vintage destined to become a Pavie of finesse with a delicate mouthfeel.
