1982 Pavie, St-Emilion

SKU #950244 91 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate

 The strongest Pavie in the eighties, this dark ruby-colored 1982 reveals aromas of strawberry jam intermixed with cherries, dried herbs, earth, and spice. Medium-bodied, with beautiful fruit flavors (particularly kirsch liqueur), this sweet, ripe, expansive Pavie has reached its apogee, where it should remain for 10-15 years.  (6/ 2000)

Stephen Tanzer's International Wine Cellar

 Good saturated full red. Exotic nose combines roasted raspberry, minerals and coffee; slight suggestions of old wine. Then sweet and minerally in the mouth, with nicely firm-edged fruit and good flavor delineation. Finish shows a slight dry edge and a hint of greenness. Best today in the middle palate.  (8/ 2002)

Wine Spectator

 Youthful ruby color, with a garnet edge. Floral and perfumed, with a berry undertone on the nose. Medium-bodied, with fine tannins and a pretty, straightforward fruit aftertaste.  (11/ 1998)

K&L Notes

This excellent St-Emilion is a testament to the talent and dedication of Jean Paul Valette, the owner and maker of the 1982 Pavie.

Country:

France

- When it comes to wine, France stands alone. No other country can beat it in terms of quality and diversity. And while many of its Region, Bordeaux, Burgundy and Champagne most obviously, produce wine as rare, as sought-after and nearly as expensive as gold, there are just as many obscurities and values to be had from little known appellations throughout the country. To learn everything there is to know about French wine would take a lifetime. To understand and appreciate French wine, one only has to begin tasting them.
