1989 Pavie, St-Emilion

SKU #1072826 90 points Wine Spectator

 All elegance and fine texture. Beautiful aromas of milk chocolate and ripe berries. Full- to medium-bodied, with silky tannins and a sweet fruit, chocolate aftertaste. (JS)  (5/1999)

Jancis Robinson

 60% Merlot, 30% Cabernet Franc, 10% Cabernet Sauvignon. This was the wine that Neal Martin gave me blind when he interviewed me for his blog before it disappeared behind erobertparker.com’s paywall. Lustrous fox red. Lot of gamey development and sweetness. On the way down but lots of pleasure. Except for technocrats. Very hedonist and so soft (though quite refreshing enough) that you could actually drink it without food. 17.5/20 points. (JR)  (12/2012)

Robert Parker's Wine Advocate

 Dark plum/garnet with an aroma comprised of underbrush, compost, mushroom, fruitcake, sweet, exotic cherries, and Asian spice, this medium-bodied, relatively hard and angular-styled Pavie is a lot younger than the 1990 and a candidate for two decades of cellaring. (RP)  (12/2002)

K&L Notes

Praise from Neal Martin's Wine Journal: "The aromatics are more curmudgeonly than the Pavie 1990 when juxtaposed, although it still has fine delineation and it expands nicely in the glass, gaining both vigour and delineation. There is airy quality to this nose, fragrant and floral. The palate is medium-bodied with a fresh, rounded entry; very well balanced with good acidity that leads to a cohesive cedar and liquorice-tinged finish that displays fine freshness." (09/2011)
