TASTING NOTES

"This small estate owned by Chantal and Gerard Perse (9 plus acres planted with 43-year-old vines) is composed of 90% Merlot and 10% Cabernet Franc. In 2004, yields were a low 28-30 hectoliters per hectare, resulting in 400 cases being produced. The dense ruby/purple-colored 2004 offers smoky crème de cassis, kirsch liqueur, crushed rock, and spring flower aromas. Opulent, flamboyant, rich, dense, and lavishly endowed, it possesses enough fruit and glycerin to nearly conceal its elevated tannin. This wine should be at its finest between 2012-2025."

"Red-ruby. Wild, expressive nose offers redcurrant, minerals, truffle and mocha. Supple, plump and tactile but with plenty of energy and shape thanks to the wine's mineral underpinning. This has real breadth and depth for the vintage. Finishes sexy and long, with broad, ripe tannins. I'd wait three or four years before starting on this one. (Unfortunately, my sample of the 2005 Pavie-Decesse was low in sulfur and thus a bit oxidative; it was a stunner last spring.)" Stephen Tanzer's International Wine Cellar
