'99 Pavie is really bright delicious and despite walking in the shade of its successor, the 2000 vintage, possibly the best St. Emilion from the vintage. It carries aromas of juicy fruit and toasty, earthy spice! This is a joy to drink at the moment and should be for a few more years!
Before being replaced with vines, the hillside of Chateau Pavie was home to Pavie peach trees. The legacy of these fruit is evident in the name of the wine estate. Ferdinand Bouffard acquired the vineyards in 1783, merging them with his other properties, but vinifying and selling the wine from each property separately. At Bouffard's death, and under new owners in 1912, the modern Chateau Pavie is born. In 2012, Chateau Pavie was labeled a Saint-Emilion Premier Grand Cru Classe A wine estate.
The vineyards today cover 37 hectares planted to 60% Merlot, 25% Cabernet Franc and 15% Cabernet Sauvignon.
This wine has a very youthful color and seems to be close to full maturity, without the density of the 1998, or its successor, the perfect 2000. It has abundant foresty notes, plenty of spice box, blackcurrant and black cherry fruit, some background toasty oak, medium to full body and sweet tannin. A very delicious wine, it offers a complex and fragrant style. It should be drunk over the next 12-15 years
