The dried-fruit and wet-earth character are eye-catching with some cedar and sandalwood. Full body, tight tannins and super polish and finesse. Velvety. A great second wine of Château Pavie. Try in 2022.

(WE91-93 points) Spicy and ripe, this wine has a strong structure of brooding tannins. There are also great black plum and blackberry flavors here that are super-ripe.

The 2015 Arômes de Pavie, the second wine of Pavie, emerges principally from two hectares on the plateau that were previously used for the Grand Vin. Black cherry, chocolate, new leather and plum flesh out to give this sumptuous, racy Saint-Émilion its inviting personality. Racy and alluring, the Arômes is a gorgeous wine that may very well hold some surprises down the road. Tasted two times.

This vintage of the second wine of Château Pavie is a blend of 66% Merlot, 21% Cabernet Franc and 13% Cabernet Sauvignon and was matured 50% in new and 50% in one-year-old French oak barrels.

This vintage of the second wine of Château Pavie is a blend of 66% Merlot, 21% Cabernet Franc and 13% Cabernet Sauvignon and was matured 50% in new and 50% in one-year-old French oak barrels. Deep garnet-purple colored, the 2015 Arômes de Pavie reveals a beguiling nose of smoked meats, fragrant earth and sautéed herbs over a core of warm red and black plums, cherry compote and blackberry pie plus a waft of dried lavender. Medium to full-bodied, the palate reveals very fine and ripe yet wonderfully firm tannins plus a seamless backbone of freshness supporting the generous fruit, finishing long with wonderful restraint and elegance. - Lisa Perrotti-Brown

This is tight and fully knitted together at this point. It is going to need a good six to eight years to relax, making it one of the less approachable second wines in this vintage for those looking for early drinking, but... This is tight and fully knitted together at this point. It is going to need a good six to eight years to relax, making it one of the less approachable second wines in this vintage for those looking for early drinking, but it does establish itself as a strong personality with a clear Pavie signature.

Dark in profile, with plum, fig and blackberry fruit flavors carried by a very creamy, polished structure, picking up light ganache and licorice accents along the way. Lovely in feel, and approachable already. Drink now...
