Tasting Notes and Scores


Neal Martin

The 2021 Pavie-Decesse, where 1.5 of the 3.0-hectares was replanted in 2019, was picked on a single day - 4 October at 33.60hL/ha. It has an intense, almost flamboyant bouquet with generous black and blue fruit, hints of strawberry and incense developing in the glass. The palate is medium-bodied and a little oaky on the entry (80% new wood). Firm structure, just a slight edginess on the mid-palate with a grippy, graphite-tinged finish, here, I might have just dialled down the new oak to find more terroir expression on the finish. This will be interesting to revisit once in bottle. 14.19% alcohol

James Suckling

A tight and focused red with blackberry, black-olive and white-pepper character. It’s medium-to full-bodied with a racy structure and fine yet slightly chewy tannins. Energetic.

Jancis Robinson

Fruit and tension with a firm but fine tannic frame. Lots of drive on the finish, the tannins tight, enhanced by the chalky terroir. Adequate fruit and freshness. (JL) 14.2%

Antonio Galloni

The 2021 Pavie-Decesse is clearly still coming together. Powerful and driving on the palate, Pavie-Decesse shows its trademark energy and virile intensity. Red/purplish fruit, gravel, spice, mocha and iron lend an air of distinction. The malos here are on the later side vis-a-vis the other properties in the range, so the wine comes across as a bit raw in this tasting. Even so, there is good mid-palate density and plenty of character. All the 2021 needs is time to come together.

Jane Anson

This feels highly extracted, with bitter chocolate and grilled coffee beans. Not always easy to keep to estate signature in 2021, but they have very much done so, with black cherry and damson fruit, and the pumice-stone scrape of the limestone plateau. 33.6hl/h yield. 3.44ph,
