The 2012 Pavie celebrates its reclassification and upgrade to Class A St.-Emilion by sporting a new black label with gold print. Fortunately, every Pavie has benefitted since Perse began a complete makeover of this estate in 1998. From 47-year-old vines, the 2012 has an inky purple color, judicious toasty oak in the nose interwoven with copious blackberry and blackcurrant fruit, Christmas spices, as well as licorice and graphite. Full-bodied, rich and moderately tannic, it will require 5-7 years of bottle age but should drink well for 20-30 years. Kudos to Chantal and Gerard Perse for their extraordinary commitment to quality, which is so evident in this more challenging vintage than some of the great years like 2009 and 2010. Very low yields of 28 hectoliters per hectare were obtained from this 92-acre estate.

Tasting note


The 2012 Chateau Pavie, a celebrated gem from Saint-Emilion Grand Cru, is a testament to the art of fine winemaking. With an alcohol content of 14%, this wine is a harmonious blend that should be decanted for approximately 2 hours to fully appreciate its complexity. On the palate, it reveals silky tannins and an array of pure fruits, underscored by a distinctive minerality reminiscent of rocks and stone. Notes of licorice and fresh cherries add to the richness, which is elegantly subdued compared to riper vintages. This wine pairs exquisitely with dishes such as roasted lamb, beef bourguignon, mushroom risotto, and aged cheeses.
