Tasting Notes Pavie 1996
The dark ruby-colored 1996 Pavie exhibits a pinched, tart personality with moderate quantities of red currant fruit in the nose, along with earth and spice. Although it exhibits good, clean winemaking, this understated, lean, angular wine does not possess much stuffing, flesh, or length. It should keep for 10-15 years. Anticipated maturity: 2000-2012.
Deep red colour. Concentrated and quite full on the palate but the wood does not seem well-integrated. Quite woody. Medium fruits. The palate lacks vigour and acidity. A bit disappointing. Drink within 5 years.
