What fun, excitement and joy it will be to compare the four perfect wines Perse has made in 2005, 2009, 2010 and, of course, the 2000, in 25 or so years. This wine is truly profound Bordeaux. Everything is in place –... What fun, excitement and joy it will be to compare the four perfect wines Perse has made in 2005, 2009, 2010 and, of course, the 2000, in 25 or so years. This wine is truly profound Bordeaux. Everything is in place – remarkable concentration and a beautiful nose of cedar and ripe blackcurrant and blackberry with some kirsch and spice box in the background. Lavishly rich, with slightly more structure and delineation than the more Rabelaisian 2009, this wine does show some serious tannins in the finish, and comes across as incredibly youthful. Of course, it's five years old, but it tastes more like a just-bottled barrel sample than a 2010. In any event, this wine is set for a long, long life and should be forgotten for at least another decade. Consume it over the following 75 or more years. - Robert M. Parker, Jr.

Very powerful. It sneaks up on you. It doesn't show its strength at first but then takes off with excellent ripe fruit spices chocolate and nuts. So long and exciting. I prefer the style to the 2009 by a hair.

This is really gorgeous with a flamboyant display of spice warm linzer torte blueberry and plum confiture aromas giving way to fleshy dark fruit and anise notes. Never overly weighty with great cut and purity on the finish thanks to a superstrong graphite note. Shows power precision and drive.

The Chateau Pavie 2010 is a blend of 70% Merlot 20% Cabernet Franc and 10% Cabernet Sauvignon cropped at 28hl/ha. There is just a slight touch of over-ripeness on the fig tinged nose.

There is just a slight touch of over-ripeness on the fig tinged nose. Again its is very dense and opulent. The palate is incredibly powerful with mouth-coating dry tannins good acidity and attractive purity coming through on the finish. Very difficult to taste now perhaps due to the late malolactics an impenetrable Pavie that will demand serious ageing. Drink 2022-

70% merlot 20% cabernet franc 10% cabernet sauvignon. Aged in 80% new French oak and 20% one-year-old barrels. Produced from a 37 Hectare mid-hillside vineyard from vines that average 45 years of age. The nose is... 70% merlot 20% cabernet franc 10% cabernet sauvignon. Aged in 80% new French oak and 20% one-year-old barrels. Produced from a 37 Hectare mid-hillside vineyard from vines that average 45 years of age. The nose is reminiscent of a fresh raspberry pie also revealing chocolate coffee and mineral notes. Seamless structure and well-defined minerality are the hallmarks of this wine and this vintage stays true to form. Full bodied and concentrated supple tannins lead to a tremendous silky texture. Give this a few years to come together fully and begin drinking around 2018.
