2001 Pavie, St-Emilion

SKU #1011256 97 points James Suckling

Outer quote mark This is really beautiful and decadent with mushroom, chocolate, plum and sliced-meat character. Even some foie gras. Full-bodied, tight and linear. Racy finish. Delicious now and beyond. Inner quote mark (1/2019)

96 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate

Outer quote mark A great showing for this wine in the mini-vertical, the 2001 Pavie has a slight lightening at the edge of its dark garnet/plum/purple color and a big, sweet kiss of cedar wood, incense, licorice, blackberry and lead pencil shavings. The wine is dense, very rich, multilayered and finishes with at least a 40- to 45-second aftertaste. This wine seems to be close to full maturity, but should hold there for easily another 15-20 years. It’s a sleeper of the vintage. (RP) Inner quote mark (8/2015)

95 points Wine Spectator

Outer quote mark This is hitting its stride now, with a very focused core of raspberry, plum and red currant fruit that is showing some secondary notes while melding perfectly with the singed alder and cedar flavors and tobacco and black tea accents. Mineral and sanguine hints chime in on the finish, which lingers with a sense of elegance. Really nice now, but there's no rush. Drink now through 2030. (JM, Web Only-2017) Inner quote mark

Jancis Robinson

Outer quote mark Richly enveloping nose. Borderline overripeness. Hot chocolate! Thick and sweet and sort of carved out of stone. Quite porty but with some freshness of fruit. Exaggerated but pleasurable. Drying tannins on the finish. Pretty luscious. (JR) Inner quote mark (1/2008)

K&L Notes

95 points Neal Martin's Wine Journal: "Tasted at the Fine Wine Experience’s Pavie vertical. A garnet core with a ruby rim. The bouquet is showing very fine definition with more Saint Emilion character coming through than recent vintages. Blackberry, raspberry, pine, sage, allspice and a touch of liquorice. The palate is medium-bodied with fine delineation, lovely balance and focus, supple tannins with a dense black cherries, blueberry, cassis and espresso- and mocha-infused finish. There is something almost Pomerol like developing in the ’01. This is an intriguing Chateau Pavie, one of the most cerebral under Perse. Tasted June 2010." (RobertParker.com, 9/2011)
