(94 points) Sir Peter Michael’s flagship wine ‘les povets’, or 'the poppies’, delivers a fine and complex full-bodied wine that will reward cellaring. It has a ripe, sweet nose of warm fruit and concentrated blackberry jam, combined with herbal, minty characters and a veneer of fine oak. The palate is fresh, tight, balanced and refined, carrying a weight that hides the alcohol well.

Strikingly pure, complex aromas of redcurrant, cherry, spicecake, tobacco and licorice. Pliant, focused red fruit flavors are complemented by deeper notes of mocha and cola. Finishes with silky tannins and a slow-building mineral quality. With its clarity, juiciness and lingering spiciness, this is far more inviting than the brooding Pavots today. -- Stephen Tanzer

The second wine the 2007 L'Esprit des Pavots (44% Cabernet Sauvignon 38% Merlot 16% Cabernet Franc and 2% Petit Verdot) exhibits lots of smoky cassis tobacco leaf and chocolate characteristics presented in a full-bodied fleshy rich format. While it is unquestionably an outstanding wine it is simply dwarfed by the prodigiousness of its bigger sibling. Consume it over the next 15-20 years.
