Full-bodied with round, creamy tannins that are beautifully polished and refined. Very long finish. All about finesse and wonderful length. 68% cabernet sauvignon, 19% cabernet franc, 10% merlot and 3% petit verdot. Drink after 2023.

More minerality, graphite, and scorched earth notes emerge from the 2018 Les Pavots.

Full-bodied and uber-concentrated, it reveals building tannins, awesome mid-palate depth, and one heck of a great finish. It's a serious, powerful, blockbuster beauty that also holds onto perfect balance and a beautiful sense of elegance. It will keep for two decades or more.

It is situated at 1,000-1,400 feet and is quite steep in areas. Composed of 68% Cabernet Sauvignon, 19% Cabernet Franc, 10% Merlot and 3% Petit Verdot, the 2018 Les Pavots is medium to deep garnet-purple in color. It needs a fair bit of coaxing to unlock the intense scents of blackcurrant preserves, ripe black plums and boysenberries with touches of wild sage, tobacco leaf and pencil shavings. The full-bodied palate is densely packed and tightly wound with loads of black fruits, dried herbs and earthy layers, supported by firm, grainy tannins and bold freshness, finishing long and energetic. 3,255 cases were made.- LPB

Alluring, with a mix of gently steeped plum and raspberry fruit carried by a polished yet persistent structure, picking up light tobacco, alder and incense notes. Late tug of earth adds nice range on the rich finish...   Alluring, with a mix of gently steeped plum and raspberry fruit carried by a polished yet persistent structure, picking up light tobacco, alder and incense notes. Late tug of earth adds nice range on the rich finish. Cabernet Sauvignon, Cabernet Franc, Merlot and Petit Verdot. Drink now through 2032. – JM
