Château Pavie Saint-Èmilion Grand Cru Red Bordeaux Blend 1998

$259

Making wine in the style of Lafite-Rothschild, Pavie's proprietor, Gerard Perse, has produced a wine that retains its terroir's legendary elegance and complexity, but with more intensity and richness. This is the quintessentially refined Bordeaux that is also immensely flavorful and authoritatively powerful. The color is a dense ruby/purple. Its sweet aromatics reveal red and black fruits intermixed with subtle oak, minerals, and spice. Medium-bodied, with layers of fruit, it is gorgeously proportioned and exquisite... Robert Parker

Really a stunning Pavie. Leads with a strawberry and pencil nose, some red floral notes. Rich and broad, might’ve guessed Ornellaia blind. Chocolate, cocoa notes. Superb, will keep for 2-3 years at least.

A hot vintage with 100° days makes this ripe but not overly-ripe wine quite fruit forward in a good way. It could almost be mistaken for new world. Generous red and dark fruits, pronounced minerality, subtle fresh herbs and fresh florality. Tasted 2018 and still very fresh!

Big, rich and full in nose and mouth and finish. Lots of dark, rich fruit. A full wine showing itself very well. This is a .375.
