Robert Parker's Wine Advocate

Outer quote mark The backward 1988 Pavie is a structured, tannic wine, balanced nicely by elegant, ripe, tobacco and black cherry-scented fruit, good acidity, and a long, spicy, tannic finish. (RP) Inner quote mark (2/1993)

Vinous

Outer quote mark The 1988 Pavie is a vintage I have met a couple of times before, this predating Gérard Perse’s acquisition in 1997. It has an attractive old school nose of light black fruit, roof tiles and cedar; a little diffuse but still fresh. The palate is medium-bodied with a tart cherry entry, wild mushroom and sandalwood. (NM) Inner quote mark (5/2018)

K&L Notes

Château Pavie's vineyards date back to Roman times, though the current estate wasn't established until the late-19th century. This bottling comes from the era of Jean-Paul Valette, before the property's purchase by Gerard Perse and the estate's controversial pursuit of the "modern" style.
