Pavie 2011 (95+WA) (1.5L)
95+ WA 94 WS
95+ Points, Robert Parker, The Wine Advocate: The 2011 Pavie is composed of 70% Merlot, 20% Cabernet Franc and 10% Cabernet Sauvignon (14.3% alcohol). It possesses a certain approachability, which is somewhat disarming for the big, robust, super-concentrated and ageworthy style Pavie has favored since 1998. The opaque purple-hued, full-bodied 2011 offers a sweet kiss of kirsch, blackberry, cassis and licorice, but no evidence of toasty oak despite the fact it is bottled about six months after most other premier grand cru classes in St.-Emilion. One of the most complete wines of the vintage, this superstar possesses gorgeous texture and opulence, and can be drunk in 3-4 years, or cellared for two decades. 04/14 "Offers ripe raspberry coulis, crushed plum and macerated red currant fruit, showing excellent definition, with racy, well-embedded notes of singed apple wood and incense. Fine-grained and long on the finish, this has ample reserves for cellaring. Not nearly as bombastic as some previous vintages. Best from 2016 through 2030...94" WS 03/14 "Pavie made a balanced, pretty wine in 2011 that shows subtle character but firm tannins. Its smoky, coffee and berry character is impressive, but the tannins are silky and polished...94" JS 01/14
