Château Pavie

Grand name of the Rive droite that needs no introduction, Château Pavie is located on the south-east facing slopes of the village of Saint-Emilion. It was in the 4th century that the first vineyards were planted in the Saint-Emilion region, and more specifically on the slopes of what is today the Château Pavie vineyard.

The Domaine has been owned by Gérard Perse since 1998, who has done his utmost to give it a boost that is, to say the least, Extraordinary, having elevated it to the rank of the most prestigious Bordeaux wines.

It was in 2012 that the consecration came for Château Pavie, when it acceded to the title of Premier Grand Cru Classé "A" in the Saint-Emilion classification, a position it retained during the latest classification revision in September 2022. 

The Château Pavie today watches over a 37-hectare vineyard, making it one of the largest estates among Saint-Emilion's Premiers Grands Crus Classés. The vines are planted on limestone and clay-limestone slopes, with 65% Merlot, 25% Cabernet Franc and 10% Cabernet Sauvignon. The wines are aged for 18 to 32 months in French oak barrels, the proportion of which can vary from 70 to sometimes 100% new wood.

The estate produces a Second wine, Arômes de Pavie, which also benefits from 18 to 24 months of barrel ageing, of which 50% is new wood.

The Château Pavie is renowned for the finesse, complexity and inimitable charm of its wines. Rich fruit and noble tannins give them vibrant energy.

Description Arômes de Pavie 2016.

With its splendid, brilliant dark red color, it offers a generous, seductive first nose with scents of cherry, blackberry and plum.

These fruity notes are complemented by nuances of cedar adding an extra dimension to the bouquet.

On the palate, the attack is rich and concentrated. The tannins are powerful but perfectly integrated, offering a solid structure and fine ageing potential.

The very greedy finish leaves pleasant fruit notes on the palate.
