The 2003 Pavie (7,080 cases; 13.5% alcohol) is closest in style to the 2000, but slightly more evolved and exotic. Its dense plum/purple color is accompanied by an extraordinary perfume of charcoal, creme de cassis, melted licorice, espresso roast, and blackberries. The wine, which hits the palate with a dramatic minerality, comes across like a hypothetical blend of limestone liqueur intermixed with black and red fruits...The integration of acidity, tannin, and wood is flawless, and the wine is incredibly pure, rich, and intense.

In a word: Napaesque. I just made that word up...but it seems to capture the essence of what's going on here. This fat baby has 10-15+ years to reach its apogee. More client lunching

An excellent example of classified Merlot based right bank Bordeaux drinking and aging well. Intense tannins, plum, and minerals. Not the green pasture mess.
