Tasting Notes Pavie 2008

95

A remarkable success in this vintage, Pavie’s 92 acre vineyard situated on the limestone soils of the spectacular south-facing Cote Pavie (one of the greatest terroirs of Bordeaux) was cropped at 30 hectoliters per hectare. A blend of 70% Merlot, 20% Cabernet Franc and 10% Cabernet Sauvignon, with an atypical (for a 2008) alcohol level of 14.5% that is higher than in its 2010 counterpart, the opaque purple-colored 2008 exhibits sweet, smoky barbecue notes intermixed with creme de cassis, black cherry, toast and crushed chalk. Deep, intense and full-bodied with surprisingly civilized tannins for such a young Pavie, it reveals wonderful breadth of flavor, a savory texture and a layered mouthfeel. It should drink beautifully in 2-4 years and keep for 25 or more.

Lots of fruit and fruity and long with amazing truffles and earth and fruity with full and velvety tannins. Long, long finish. Balanced for the vintage, but very rich. Better in 2013.

Tasted ex-chateau and single blind in Southwold. The Pavie 2008 has a ripe, mineral-rich bouquet with fine definition: dark plum, dark cherry, blueberry; edgy and quite tensile. The palate has a creamy entry with vice-like grip, tannic and masculine, not a subtle wine but almost aggressive. It is a little mouth-puckering on the finish suggesting that it needs several years to soften since there is a lot of ravishing fruit waiting to blossom. Tasted January 2012.
