1990 Chateau Pavie Bordeaux

Château Pavie is a Bordeaux estate in Saint-Émilion known for its Merlot-dominant grand vin. It is one of four châteaux with the Premier Grand Cru Classé A status, the highest classification in Bordeaux's right bank.

The 37-hectare (91-acre) Pavie estate sits on a limestone plateau on a site known to have been planted with vines since Roman times. The current property boundaries were heavily influenced by the land purchases of Ferdinand Bouffard in the late 19th Century. Bouffard bought a number of vineyards and châteaux, laying the foundations not just for Pavie but several of its neighboring estates, although he continued to manage them as separate entities. In the early 20th Century, Château Pavie was divided into three: châteaux Pavie Macquin and Pavie Decesse were created from land from the original estate. Pavie remains the largest of the three and is one of the largest estates in Saint-Émilion.

Rating 1990 Chateau Pavie Bordeaux I am an admirer of proprietor Valette so it has given me no pleasure to write so-so reviews for recent Pavie vintages. I was pleased in this blind tasting to see how strongly both the 1989 and 1990 Pavies performed. Both slightly eclipsed my scores given immediately after bottling. The impressive 1990 Pavie exhibits a deeper more saturated ruby/garnet color as well as a sweeter more expressive bouquet of truffles Asian spices black-cherries and smoked herbs. Full-bodied and powerful with a meaty beef blood-like richness this backward intense deep concentrated muscular St.-Emilion needs 3-4 more years of cellaring it should age well through 2018. RP
