Château-Pavie Saint-Émilion 2010
|Region||France, Bordeaux, St. Emilion|
This is a wine whose greatness will become more evident in the future as time brings out the expression of its excellent terroir. With a potential for aging 10 years-or even 20-this Pavie will go from strength to strength.
An immense wine, with tiers of roasted fig, boysenberry confiture, warm plum sauce, Black Forest cake and raspberry ganache that flow authoritatively, while a terrific graphite underpinning provides support. The explosive finish is framed by roasted apple wood and licorice snap notes. Shows terrific muscle, but the purity and minerality is there as well. Needs time. Best from 2020 through 2040. 7,083 cases made.
