Full-bodied and delivering limestone, chalk and lavender on the palate. Great structure, too. Needs four or five years to soften. Better in 2022. collapse

From its ripe black-currant fruits through the acidity and tense tannins, to the full, generous aftertaste, the wine impresses. It has great fruit, balanced acidity and a good potential.

A bright floral accent on the finish lifts this up a register and lets it sail on, holding that note. Best from 2020 through 2040. From France. — J.M. collapse

In the early going, I thought the 2015 would be easy to approach young, but this tasting has made me re-think that. Hedonistically ripe and explosive, with tremendous fruit purity, the 2015 possesses incredible depth along with the structure to match. Readers will need to be patient. -- Antonio Galloni collapse

With fine, fine tannin, high, yet integrated acidity, and a great mid-palate, it’s more approachable than either of the other Pavie releases, yet is still backward and unevolved. Give bottles 4-5 years of cellaring and enjoy over the following two to three decades. collapse

Full-bodied, voluptuously fruited and decadently styled in the mouth, the packed layers of black fruit preserves and exotic spices are well-matched by firm, ripe, grainy tannins and seamless freshness that sits comfortably in the background, finishing with great length and depth. - Lisa Perrotti-Brown collapse

Tight and firm, this needs time to open and soften but there is no doubting the quality of the ingredients.

Young St-Émilion can be tough to taste in great vintages, as they often present an unrelenting wall of fruit, but this is pristine - the tannins are flexible and the power is well balanced. collapse
