2009 Pavie

Colour: Red
Vintage: 2009
Appellation: St Emilion
100 (RP)
There are few chateaux which have had as meteoric a rise as Chateau Pavie. Thanks to the modern and innovating work of owner Gerard Perse, Chateau Pavie has become one of the most iconic estates in Bordeaux. Since taking over in 1998, there have been dramatic changes in quality: a simple look at Robert Parker’s scores says it all, with six wines from 1998-2016 scoring the perfect 100pts and an average Wine Advocate score between 1998-2013 of over 96pts. Crucially the heart of the chateau’s success continues to lie in its truly remarkable terroir that spans one of St-Emilion’s most privileged slopes. So whilst Pavie’s original reputation was as the poster-boy of rich, ripe Bordeaux for the 21st Century, Perse has continually tweaked and finessed his style to allow the vineyard full and true expression. Indeed from 2014 onwards there has been greater delicacy of touch without losing any of the wine’s inherent exotic charms. Where once it was controversial, even divisive, today Pavie enjoys consistent plaudits both sides of the Atlantic and far beyond.

Tasting Notes and Scores

Wine Advocate

While the Perses may think the 2005 is the summit of winemaking at Pavie, this vintage certainly gives serious competition to both the 2005 and 2000. It is certainly the most opulent and luxuriously rich wine Pavie has ever made (and that is saying something). Pavie’s style of low yields, ripe fruit and serious extraction does produce, even in lighter vintages, a very concentrated and dense wine, but in the great years, the results are legendary. This wine has an inky purple color and a stunningly sweet, ripe nose of mulberries, blackberries, blackcurrants, licorice and incense. The oak still has some presence in the aromatics, as well as in the full-bodied, very concentrated, skyscraper-like mouthfeel and texture. This wine feels almost as if you could lose your palate in it, it is so dense and deep, yet at the same time it possesses silky tannins and rather remarkable purity, balance, and a good 60-second-plus finish. This is an amazing wine and probably will be drinkable in 5-10 years (although actually it could be drunk now because of the vintage’s voluptuous texture), and again, seems to have 50 or more years of longevity. It is clearly a modern Bordeaux legend.

The 2009 Pavie has a gorgeous bouquet, very pure and refined with seamlessly integrated oak and wonderful delineation. The palate is medium-bodied with supple tannin, perfectly judged acidity. Fine grip with compelling tension on the finish. This shimmers with energy. Easily, this is the best bottle that I have encountered over the years. - vinous.com, March 2019

[70M/20CF/10CS] Ripe fruit and raisiny character too, also the strong impression of 'dry' new oak - like being in a new barrel chai; full bodied, concentrated, drily tannic wine with a spirity, dried fruit at its heart; intense, pure, bitter-black flavour of considerable tenacity, with a delicate fruit persistence which whispers the quality of its terroir and what might be, but whose voice, for the moment, is largely masked by the style of winemaking. What comes across is a pure, bitter-sweet flavour, warm, astringent, more like an alcohol spirit. Concentrated, low yield droplets of faintly raisiny fruit, long pure and powerful. But to me it also tastes withered and old before its time, with none of the freshness, fruit glow, juiciness and bloom of youth it should have. As usual it will divide tasters and drinkers, and it clearly isn't for me. Good of its type, yes.... but perhaps I'm not really the person to judge.
