Sexy nuanced nose combines black raspberry graphite mocha and flowers. Thick sweet and powerfully concentrated; wonderfully rich broad seamless wine with fruit of steel. Flavors of kirsch licorice and minerals saturate every square millimeter of the mouth. Huge broad tannins will carry this outsized wine through at least a couple decades of life in bottle.

Dry tannins dominate this wine. Pavie's style has become less exuberant more restrained which allows the terroir to show through in its tannins and concentration. This is for long-term aging. R.V.

This wine still has some tannins to resolve, and should be cellared for another 4-5 years. Drink over the following two decades. - Robert M. Parker, Jr.

This is lavishly oaked with dark espresso mocha and bittersweet cocoa notes proudly leading the way while the core of fig sauce melted licorice snap and blackberry confiture waits in the wings. Dense and grippy through the finish with powerfully rendered fruit matching the dense toast. A huge wine that will need some time. Best from 2013 through 2022. -JM

45 year-old vines; 32hls/ha. Black and opaque purple core with vibrant purple fuchsia rim. An elegant nose offers Asian spice blackberry compote and mineral purity with that extra complexity I have come to appreciate. The... 45 year-old vines; 32hls/ha. Black and opaque purple core with vibrant purple fuchsia rim. An elegant nose offers Asian spice blackberry compote and mineral purity with that extra complexity I have come to appreciate. The palate shows juicy spicy blackberry with gravelly mineral and earth elements but is balanced with fine grip and well-managed tannins. Kudos!
