Long, concentrated, full bodied and opulent, there are layers of fruit here to caress your palate from start to finish. This is a compelling wine that continues to sell for a very friendly price, especially when you consider the extraordinary quality tasted here in this vintage. Give it a decade in the cellar and enjoy for the next 20 years after that. Read more at:https://www.thewinecellarinsider.com/search-wine-tasting-notes/?szSearch=2016+Pavie collapse

This deep, inky-colored effort boasts a rock star bouquet of blackcurrants, black cherries, white truffle, graphite, and spice. Deep, rich, and powerful on the palate, yet also balanced, elegant, and seamless, with ultra-fine tannins, this seamless beauty needs a decade of cellaring and will keep for 4-5 decades. collapse

This is very linear and driven with a precise and driven center palate. Full-bodied, tight and compact. Energetic and well formed. Give it at least five years. Try from 2024.

Powerful, dense and explosive in the glass, the 2016 is simply dazzling. A rush of dark cherry, plum, lavender, spice and licorice builds in a sumptuous, beautifully layered Saint-Émilion that screams with character. More than anything else, the 2016 impresses for the way it balances structure and fruit intensity. The tannins are imposing, but there is a creaminess to the fruit that renders them barely perceptible. A move towards gentler extraction paid off hugely. What a wine! -- Antonio Galloni collapse

Medium to full-bodied, the palate is an exercise in poise, revealing layer upon layer of cherries and berries flavors and tons of savory nuances, framed by firm yet exquisitely ripe tannins, finishing very long. - Lisa Perrotti-Brown collapse

Wine Enthusiast, May 2019
This juicy wine wears its alcohol lightly, contrasting the tannins and firm structure with freshness and acidity. Blackberry flavors dominate along with attractive perfumes. Drink this impressive wine from 2025.

Nice intensity overall gives this a mouthwatering echo and pulls you back for more. Best from 2023 through 2038. — JM collapse

It has a punch of cool blue fruits, with rippling tannins and a whirl of freshly cut mint on the finish. You will need to be patient, but expect to be richly rewarded. 70% new oak.
