Château Aromes de Pavie Saint Emilion Grand Cru, Bordeaux, France, 2020
Grapes: 70% Merlot, 20% Cabernet Franc & 10% Cabernet Sauvignon, 37ha on limestone plateau, hand harvested, aged for 18 to 32 months in 70% new oak
"Aromes de Pavie" is the second wine of 1er Grand Cru Classé "A" Chateau Pavie.
Critics' Tasting Note:
"Deep purple-black in color, it needs a little swirling to unleash its exuberant scents of stewed black plums, black cherry compote and boysenberries, plus hints of tar, sautéed herbs and chargrill. The full-bodied palate packs in the black fruit layers, framed by soft tannins and tons of freshness, finishing long and earthy."
(91-93/100) points, Lisa Perrotti-Brown, WINE ADVOCATE
"With a distinctive floral edge, the wine quickly shifts to its nuances of espresso, licorice, crushed rocks, plums and dark chocolate on the nose. The wine is poised between its richness, freshness and vibrant layers of plums, cherries and cocoa with its edge of sea salt. What really makes this work is the new blend of 50% Cabernet Franc and 50% Merlot, both harvested from specific parcels. Aromes de Pavie is no longer the second wine of Pavie, it is a unique wine of its own creation. Drink from 2024-2040."
94/100 points, Jeff Leve, The Wine Cellar Insider, March 2023
