Blueberry jam, graphite, menthol, licorice, espresso, lavender and cloves are some of the many nuances that unfold in a statuesque Saint-Émilion of dizzying scale. Big, brawny and powerful, the 2019 is going to require years in bottle to blossom, but it is immensely promising and very clearly a great wine in the making. -- Antonio Galloni

(JS 96-97 points) Wow. A big, rich wine with lots of tannins here. It’s full-bodied with a core of tannins that frame the wine nicely. Intense and powerful at the finish.

The yields this year were 17 hectoliters per hectare, and the alcohol came in at 14.51%, while the pH was 3.51 (remarkably low!). Very deep purple-black in color, it has an intoxicating nose of plum preserves, blueberry tart, kirsch and molten chocolate with nuances of licorice, lilacs, clove oil and cedar chest. The full-bodied palate is built like a skyscraper, with a soaring structure of firm, finely grained tannins and brazen freshness supporting the decadent black fruit and spicy layers, finishing very long and fruity. - Lisa Perrotti-Brown

It's always an elegant wine and the 2019 is no exception, with an incredible minerality in its black raspberry, cassis, spring flowers, crushed rock, and graphite-driven aromas and flavors. Rich, full-bodied, and beautifully balanced, it's another brilliant wine from this team. While it shows the pretty, finesse-driven style of this vintage, it has enough structure to warrant 4-6 years of bottle age.

As ever this is a true highlight of the Pavie stable, still with muscles and concentration but accompanied by the most gorgeous seam of freshness, showcasing the gorgeous limestone soils.

This is what balance can look like in these bigger-framed wines and it's lovely. Will age and soften but has the grip and the uplift to carry it through. A yield of 17hl/ha.

Full-bodied, with waves of polished, sweet, dark fruits and licorice, this is going to be outstanding after 7-9 in the cellar. The wine was made from blending 90% Merlot with 10% Cabernet Franc.

While the wine shows power and concentration, the quality of the black plum and berry fruits provides a fine counterpoint. This fine wine is in a line from this estate that ages well. - ROGER VOSS
