At this property the 1991 is better than the 1992. Pavie is one of a handful of St.-Emilion premier grand cru classes to produce a 1991. While it is hardly a stellar effort, the wine does offer medium ruby color, a spicy, attractive, bing cherry, vanillin-scented nose, ripe, medium-bodied flavors, light tannin, and adequate depth. Drink it over the next 7-8 years.
Chateau Pavie is a top wine estate based in the Saint Emilion region of Bordeaux, France. Located in the South West, the chateau was reclassified to the top tier of the Saint Emilion classification of wine in 2012, as Premier Grand Cru Classe (A).
The name Pavie originates back to Roman times, signifying an orchard of peaches - ‘Pavies’ that used to reside in the area. The owner of this prestigious wine estate is Parisian millionaire Gerard Perse, who procured the chateau for a whopping $ 31 million (USD) in 1998.
