Gerard Perse's 2000 Pavie Decesse, a blend of 90% Merlot and 10% Cabernet Franc from a vineyard situated above Pavie, on the steep limestone hillsides outside the walled town of St.-Emilion, is a fabulous effort (all the Perse wines are stunning in this vintage). Notes of camphor, creme de cassis, violets, black currants, cedar, and licorice jump from the glass of this inky/purple-hued offering. Monumental richness, sensational sweet tannin, a skyscraper-like mid-palate, and a 45+-second finish result in an extraordinary wine that is just reaching its plateau of full maturity. It should last for another 20-25 years. Robert Parker

Just starting to show mature notes of forest floor and leather that peak out of a dominant Merlot wine of power, with red and black fruits that are concentrated, but shows all of it with grace. Medium grain tannins are a little dusty but smooth.

Rich cherry and plum pillowed by vanilla and smoky perfume. It's almost hedonistic on the nose but the structure is unmistakable on the palate! Juicy yet clearly defined.

Purple to dark red in color, not showing much in the age department. The first 30 minutes the nose and palate was all savory with beef jerky, mint, and leather notes. After a 30 minute decant mulled spices, cassis, currants, and minerality appeared. Firm but ripe tannins made up part of the wonderful balance this wine had. This hardly drank like a 14 year old wine.

Started out all berries and shaved chocolate and opened up beautifully....then really clamped down a bit after a couple hours...killer wine just starting to show some age notes but leave it alone still....really nice next to the 2004 Pontet Canet.
