Château Pavie Saint-Èmilion Grand Cru Red Bordeaux Blend 2003 (1500ml)

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.

Still plenty of life with enough acid to warrant a few more years before trying again. But very nice showing. Takes me back to Paris.

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.

Spectacular bottle. Beautiful fruit on the nose and palate. Needs a lot of time open up. Was open 2 hours before decanting for another hour. This puppy has another 20 years!
