Long and velvety through the finish. A beautiful effort for the vintage.-J.M.

It possesses a certain approachability, which is somewhat disarming for the big, robust, super-concentrated and ageworthy style Pavie has favored since 1998. The opaque purple-hued, full-bodied 2011 offers a sweet kiss of kirsch, blackberry, cassis and licorice, but no evidence of toasty oak despite the fact it is bottled about six months after most other premier grand cru classes in St.-Emilion. One of the most complete wines of the vintage, this superstar possesses gorgeous texture and opulence, and can be drunk in 3-4 years, or cellared for two decades. 95+ - Robert M. Parker, Jr.

Really fresh and bright with a linear and precise palate. Dark berries and chocolate powder. Full body, firm and silky tannins and a silky finish. Just starting to come around now.

The Pavie was picked from 20th until 30th September. Usually there is an explosion of fruit from the glass...but not this time. It is more succinct in 2011 drawing you in to the seductive pure cassis and dark berry fruits...   The Pavie was picked from 20th until 30th September. Usually there is an explosion of fruit from the glass...but not this time. It is more succinct in 2011 drawing you in to the seductive pure cassis and dark berry fruits laced with blueberry and a touch of soy. The palate is full-bodied and very well balanced with ripe tannins good acidity and great harmony. There is less of a vice-like grip than the 2010 and of course great persistency and purity on the mouth though those tannins are drying on the finish (as usual.) will require a decade in bottle. Note the plus sign. Tasted April 2012.

(90-92 points) Barrel sample. Here is a ripe and juicy wine that pushes forward with delicious blackberry fruits. There is a tense edge of acidity that then brings out denser tannins, but juiciness characterizes this...   (90-92 points) Barrel sample.
