This wine still possesses a dense, youthful, plum/garnet color to the rim, with very little lightening.

This wine still possesses a dense, youthful, plum/garnet color to the rim, with very little lightening. The first vintage for Pavie under Chantal and Gérard Perse, the 1998 is full-bodied, showing lots of cedar wood, forest floor, roasted herbs, black cherry and blackcurrant and new saddle leather. It is quite full-bodied, opulent and seems to be just entering its plateau of full maturity, where it should last another 15-20 years. - Robert M. Parker, Jr.

Still blackish hints in the crimson. Sweet spicy notes on the nose. Quite complex and intriguing without being exaggerated. Lovely balance and follow through. Long and neat. This wine is really rewarding. Just slightly... Still blackish hints in the crimson. Sweet spicy notes on the nose. Quite complex and intriguing without being exaggerated.

Full-bodied with supersilky tannins yet they are still chewy. This needs some more bottle age to resolve the slightly angular and woody tannins. But it's full of stuffing.¿'88/'98 Bordeaux retrospective (2008). Best after 2011. 6665 cases made. -JS

Sappy liqueur-like aromas of cherry raspberry coulis roast coffee and exotic wood spices. Wonderfully sweet and mouthfilling but with harmonious acidity giving shape and clarity to the flavors. Finishes quite long with fine tannins. Not at all overextracted; in fact here the tannins seem a bit sweeter than those of the '99. Still unfolding; this may ultimately surpass the '99. 92(+?) points
