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
Distinctly better than the 1939 but tough wartime conditions, shortage of labour and materials. Average-sized crop. Some attractive wines though uneven.
