In 2002 a big section of this vineyard will be incorporated into Pavie. The 2000 Pavie Decesse made from 90% Merlot and 10% Cabernet Franc at yields of 30 hectoliters per hectare enjoyed a five-week maceration and was aged in 100% new oak with aging on its lees for the first six months. It was bottled unfined and unfiltered as are all the Perse wines. This wine for about one-half the price of Pavie is well-worth checking out ... to state it mildly! A brilliant effort the wine has an opaque bluish/purple color and a gorgeous nose of sweet blueberries blackberries charcoal and mineral. The wine is full-bodied rich with striking purity fabulous delineation immense body and extract and sweet but high levels of tannin in the finish which goes on for nearly one minute. This is undoubtedly the greatest Pavie Decesse ever produced and a modern-day Bordeaux legend. At one-half the price of its sibling Pavie it should be obvious what readers should do! Anticipated maturity: 2008-2030.

Extremely ripe almost raisiny with lots of Indian spices and prunes that turn to tar. Full-bodied with loads of fruit and velvety tannins that emphasize the richness of the year and the class of the soil. Best after 2009...

Explosive aroma of roasted black cherry. Dense highly concentrated and deep with penetrating palate-saturating flavors of blackberry and black cherry framed by firm underlying minerality. A wine of great force; despite its major ripeness there's also a cool medicinal aspect that's utterly refreshing. Finishes with big broad tannins and outstanding length.

It has harmony and balance allowing the deep black fruits to rest easily with the dense tannins. This is a wine which will age well gracefully over 10 years and more.
