- 1 kg
Chateau Pavie is a unique style of Bordeaux wine that is deep in colour. In fact, it is often opaque in the best years. The wine that comes out of Chateau Pavie is rich and filled with minerality, showing the unique purity of fruit.
The 2012 Pavie celebrates its reclassification and upgrade to Class A St.-Emilion by sporting a new black label with gold print. 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.
Merlot, Cabernet Franc, Cabernet Sauvignon.
