$255.00 per Bottle

"This is a magnificent Pavie with full body and polished and integrated tannins. Shows a level of precision and balance that is always unexpected. Long and harmonious. Hard now to drink now, but will reward those with long-term patience." JamesSuckling.com

"This is juicy and fresh in feel despite the obvious heft, with a brambly note underneath the core of blueberry, açai and boysenberry fruit. Loads of licorice, bay, tobacco and black tea flavors fill in through the finish. A flashy display, but this has the cut and drive to pull it off.--Non-blind Pavie vertical (March 2017). Best from 2026 through 2040. 6,665 cases made." Wine Spectator

"The 2014 Pavie is silky, powerful and intense, with all of its elements in the right place. In 2014, Pavie is exceptionally polished, with plenty of richness but less of the bombastic style of some years past. Part of that is, of course, the personality of the vintage, but at the same time, there has been a move toward a bit more finesse here in recent years. A rush of raspberry jam, pomegranate, mint and white flowers leads into the vivid, richly textured finish. The 2014 is a gorgeous Pavie loaded with personality." Antonio Galloni, Vinous.com

"The 2014 Pavie is clearly the star of Gérard Perse's portfolio this year. The aromatics are the most complex and absorbing, a mixture of red and black fruit, graphite and black truffle, a faint marine influence emerging as it unfolds in the glass. The palate is medium-bodied and demonstrates less substance and glossiness than the Bellevue-Mondotte. In fact, if you had this blind you might describe it as a more "classic" Saint Emilion, underpinned by quite firm tannin that provide this with impressive backbone. There is a toughness to this Pavie, but it retains balance. It has its sights set on longevity and for that we will have to wait, but it will be worth it." Neal Martin, Robert Parker's Wine Advocate
