2000 Chateau Pavie Bordeaux - 100 pts!
Give Gerard Perse credit. People thought his numerous assurances that 2000 was the greatest Pavie ever produced were premature as well as arrogant. However after tasting this extraordinary blend of 60% Merlot 30% Cabernet Franc and 10% Cabernet Sauvignon (made from low yields of 28-30 hectoliters per hectare) six separate times in 2003 it is unquestionably one of the most monumental wines Bordeaux has ever produced. Bottled in March 2003 about nine months later than other 2000s the color is an opaque purple and the bouquet offers up notes of liquid minerals blackberries cherries and cassis intermixed with spice box cedar and white flowers. On the palate it exhibits a massive display of richness and extract yet with pinpoint delineation and vibrancy as well as a 60+ second finish this is the kind of phenomenal wine that Perse's critics were afraid he might produce - a no-compromise immortal wonder that represents the essence of one of Bordeaux's greatest terroirs. Life is too short not to own and consume the 2000 Pavie. RP
