The Estate

Château Pavie is an estate with 37 hectares of undivided vineyard with exceptional terroir located South East of the village of Saint-Emilion. The vineyard is composed of 65% Merlot, 25% Cabernet Franc, 10% Cabernet Sauvignon.

The vineyard can be divided into three clearly-identified terroirs:

– The limestone plateau, situated around 85 meters above the Dordogne. Profile: white lithic limestone (white limestone soil on “starfish limestone”).

 – The hillside, situated around 55 meters above the Dordogne. Profile: finely-textured brown limestone on Fronsadais molasse (heavy clay-limestone soil).

– The foothills, situated around 35 meters above the Dordogne. Profile: colluvial brown limestone on non-limestone fluvial sands (clay-limestone soil at the bottom of the slope) and brown, large-grained soils (sandy clay).

Blend

60% Merlot, 22% Cabernet-Franc, 18% Cabernet-Sauvignon

Tasting Notes

Wine Advocate (Robert Parker) : 98 / 100
“In 2015, the blend is 60% Merlot, 22% Cabernet Franc and 18% Cabernet Sauvignon, and the wine was matured 80% in new French oak. Deep garnet-purple in color, the 2015 Pavie is still sporting a bit of its oak to begin, giving way to a glorious nose of crushed black cherries, blackberries and mulberries plus hints of dried roses, stewed tea, unsmoked cigars and garrigue. The rich, concentrated, full-bodied palate delivers an incredible structure of very firm, very ripe tannins and a racy line of freshness cutting through the dense layers of perfumed black fruits and savory notions, finishing with epic length.”
