Château-Pavie Saint-Émilion 2003
The Pavie terroir produces wine which is characterized by remarkable power. Fermentation temperatures are kept moderate and the wine does not stay too long on the skins in order to preserve finesse. The wine's natural richness and strength nevertheless makes malolactic fermentation and ageing possible in 100% new oak barrels.
Wine SpectatorIncredible nose of raspberry jam with vanilla and floral undertones. Full-bodied, with velvety, caressing tannins and loads of fruit on the finish. Best after 2010. 3,330 cases made.
