Chateau Pavie 2012 Saint Emilion 1er Grand Cru Classe 75cl / 14%
A bottle of 2012 Château Pavie Saint Emilion 1er Grand Cru Classé from Bordeaux. Pavie is a 42 hectare estate, planted with 60% Merlot, 30% Cabernet Franc and 10% Cabernet Sauvignon, with an average production of 90000 bottles per year.
'The 2012 Pavie celebrates its reclassification and upgrade to Class A St.-Emilion by sporting a new black label with gold print. Fortunately, every Pavie has benefitted since Perse began a complete makeover of this estate in 1998. From 47-year-old vines, the 2012 has an inky purple color, judicious toasty oak in the nose interwoven with copious blackberry and blackcurrant fruit, Christmas spices, as well as licorice and graphite. Full-bodied, rich and moderately tannic, it will require 5-7 years of bottle age but should drink well for 20-30 years. Kudos to Chantal and Gerard Perse for their extraordinary commitment to quality, which is so evident in this more challenging vintage than some of the great years like 2009 and 2010. Very low yields of 28 hectoliters per hectare were obtained from this 92-acre estate. 95/100' Robert M.Parker Jnr, tasted 2015
