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 (3/2018)

96 points 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 Vinous

Outer quote mark The 2001 Pavie has a vibrant bouquet of lifted blackberry, raspberry and rose petal scents, joined by touches of cedar and mint from the Cabernets. The palate is well balanced with fine tension, structured but not overbearing. This is less dense than the 2000, with better-integrated wood and a lovely rondeur toward the finish. It seems to gain complexity in the glass, developing some lovely chestnut notes. You can broach bottles now, but they will keep for a number of years. (NM) Inner quote mark (9/2021)

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. (JM, Web-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. 17.5/20 points (JR) Inner quote mark (1/2008)
