Château Pavie 2015 was rated a perfect 100 points by James Suckling.

Under Gerard Perse, Château Pavie has become one of Saint-Émilion’s leading châteaux. Perse is an absolute perfectionist and, since he took over in 1998, he has managed the 92 acre vineyard with nothing short of brilliance and his grapes are treated with kid gloves Dating back to the 19th Century, Pavie is situated on one of the district's most desirable plots in the hills south-east of the village of Saint-Émilion where orchards of peaches (pavies) once grew.

”This is really something. Sort of speechless when I taste it. It shows evocative aromas of wet earth, oyster shell, dust, tile, blackberries and blueberries. Full body, ultra-fine tannins and a length and intensity that is so, so fine. A wine in perfect harmony. Complete. Hard not not to drink. Energetic and balanced. Better to wait for 10 years." James Suckling

"…a glorious nose of crushed black cherries, blackberries and mulberries plus hints of dried roses, stewed tea, unsmoked cigars and garrigue. The rich, concentrated, full-bodied palate delivers an incredible structure of very firm, very ripe tannins and a racy line of freshness cutting through the dense layers of perfumed black fruits and savory notions, finishing with epic length." James Suckling
