Reviews for 2006 Pavie Bordeaux Blend

Wine Spectator - Wine Spectator, May 2007
Full-bodied yet balanced and silky. Solid and rich but not aggressive. Long and beautiful with pure fruit. Less muscular than typical Pavie but seductive. A beauty. -J.S.

Tasted at Bordeaux Index's annual 10-Year On tasting in London. The 2006 Château Pavie has a rich, generous, almost opaque bouquet with raspberry coulis, crushed strawberry, vanilla and melted tar, very well-defined and focused - perhaps more so than the 2006 Angelus? The palate is well balanced with fine tannin, a keen line of acidity, very harmonious in the mouth with black cherries, wild strawberry, citrus fruit, a touch of tar and tobacco developing towards the finish. It leans towards Cheval Blanc in style, but whatever its semblances, it remains a very well-crafted Saint Emilion with a long future ahead. Tasted January 2016. - Neal Martin

Sweet fresh red fruits lead the aromas and are underlined by a hint of fresh mint cooler clay and minerals and a toasty cedar/leather component. The wine makes a soft entry into the mouth and quickly builds on the mid-palate to an enourmous chewy wine. The bold depth of fruit balances the tannic strength with flavors of raspberry blueberry cinnamon and vanilla lingering on through the finish. A truly fantastic effort showing the success that could be achieved in 2006 with careful planning and hard work. Tasted twice with consistent notes. 10% Cabernet Sauvignon 70% Merlot 20% Cabernet Franc.For the first time ever Gerard Perse did not use 100% new oak in any of his wines. While this is a sign that the fruit was not as full and rich in 2006 as previous vintages his choice to use less shows to be a fantastic decision by the end result of his wines. The 2006 Pavie uses 65% new oak.
