An amazing achievement in this vintage although not at the level of the prodigious 2003 2001 or 2000 the 2002 Pavie Decesse is a dense ruby/purple-colored full-bodied wine revealing notes of dried herbs fruitcake licorice... An amazing achievement in this vintage although not at the level of the prodigious 2003 2001 or 2000 the 2002 Pavie Decesse is a dense ruby/purple-colored full-bodied wine revealing notes of dried herbs fruitcake licorice black currants and cherries. Textured fleshy and concentrated this is one of the stars of the Right Bank in this challenging vintage. Its low acidity and plush style suggest enjoying it now and over the next 15+ years.</P>

Deep ruby-red. Dark raspberry and black cherry aromas lifted by minerals. Very suave on entry then minerally and gripping in the middle with a restrained sweetness and excellent flavor definition.

Very suave on entry then minerally and gripping in the middle with a restrained sweetness and excellent flavor definition. This came across as less opulent than the 2002 Monbousquet tasted alongside it but more minerally and detailed. Finishes with impressive tannic spine and a note of licorice. Has the backbone to reward eight to ten years of patience. Very strong for the vintage.
