1990 Pavie, St-Emilion (Previously $390)

SKU #951275 92 points Wine Spectator

Outer quote mark Ripe and fresh. Just what it should be. Deep ruby with red hue. Loads of chocolate, vanilla, tobacco and ripe fruit. Full bodied with lots of velvety tannins and a long finish. (JS) Inner quote mark (8/2000)

90 points Wine Advocate

Outer quote mark Perhaps the last great Pavie before Gerard Perse bought the estate in 1997. The 1990 Pavie sports a deep core with deep tawny rim and sports a very “classic” Pavie bouquet that is muted at first, but unfurls gracefully with intense cedar aromas deriving from the Cabernet Sauvignon. Underneath there are aromas of crushed stone and a touch of cold black tea. It does not have the vim and vigour of the 1989. The palate is medium-bodied and whilst it is not as vigorous as a couple of years ago, it retains a supple texture, impressive harmony and a lovely wild strawberry, fig, leather and brine tinged finish. Fresh and vital, this is holding up well. Tasted June 2010. (NM) Inner quote mark (9/2011)

90 points Int'l Wine Cellar

Outer quote mark Medium healthy red. Expressive aromas of smoky oak, toffee, redcurrants, and a trace of herbs. Thick, velvety and smooth, with substantial fat. Broad more than intense right now. Lingering, sweet finish; ripe tannins are substantial but currently buried in fruit. (ST) Inner quote mark (11/1993)

Jancis Robinson

Outer quote mark Firm, meaty, savoury nose. Traditional style with less opulence than most 1990s. Still perceptible tannins – cries out for food. Dry finish but impressively long and with some richness. 17/20 points. (JR) Inner quote mark (5/2010)
