All elegance and fine texture. Beautiful aromas of milk chocolate and ripe berries. Full- to medium-bodied, with silky tannins and a sweet fruit, chocolate aftertaste. Hard to resist now.

I am an admirer of proprietor Valette, so it has given me no pleasure to write so-so reviews for recent Pavie vintages. I was pleased in this blind tasting to see how strongly both the 1989 and 1990 Pavies performed. Both slightly eclipsed my scores given immediately after bottling. The 1989 displays a deep rubygarnet color with no signs of amber at the edge. It offers up an exotic, spicy, fruitcake, earthy, chocolatey nose with sweet woodsy aromas in the background. Long and youthful, with noticeably hard tannin, this medium-bodied, concentrated 1989 appears to be a slowly evolving wine. With another 2-3 years of bottle age, it may merit an outstanding score.

In Bordeaux it is now established that it is on the hillsides of Pavie and Ausone that the vine was implanted for the first time in Saint Emilion in IV century. But it was not until the 19th century that the true wine vocation of Pavie really took sense. At that time, the Château is divided among several families of owners, including Talleman and Pigasse. In 1954, during the official classification of the wines of Saint Emilion, the Château Pavie reaches the rank of Premier Grand Cru Classé B. The arrival of Gérard Perse in Pavie in 1998, will be at the origin of a tremendous leap forward , today endorsed by the unanimity of the world of wine. In 2012, Château Pavie wins the top ranking among the Premiers Grands Crus classés A
