Château Pavie Saint-Èmilion Grand Cru Red Bordeaux Blend 2009

$475

Another brilliant effort from Gerard Perse...Everything here is done with extraordinary gentleness and precision. The result is a powerful, full-bodied, remarkably intense wine that is black/purple in color...It displays enormous creme de cassis and boysenberry fruit with some cherries, spice box, and crushed rock in the background. It is intense, with loads of minerality, huge extraction, massive power, yet again, the vintage character seems to have given it a freshness and vibrancy despite the wine's obvious viscosity...this is another 40-year wine from Gerard Perse...

Does Pavie make wines that aren't cloyingly ripe on the nose and short, tannic, and weedy on the palate? It is, at least, better than the appalling 2005.

Beautiful old world wines. I liked the '09 slightly more than the '10. Great ripe fruit with rounded tannins.
