Aromes de Ch Pavie 2018
Saint-Emilion€ 101.64/ Per fles min. 12 flessen
The Wine Advocate – Robert Parker – 92-94+/100
The 2018 Arômes de Pavie is made up of 65% Merlot, 18% Cabernet Franc and 17% Cabernet Sauvignon, harvested September 27 to October 8 with yields of 42 hectoliters per hectare. The wine has a 3.56 pH and 14.42% alcohol. Very deep purple-black in color, it is a little shy to begin, opening out to give scents of baked black and red cherries, mulberries and blackberry tart with suggestions of licorice, mocha, tilled soil, smoked meats and lilacs with a touch of oolong tea. Full-bodied, the palate is jam-packed with ripe, rich black fruit, framed by firm, rounded tannins and seamless freshness, finishing long and savory. This is a very serious second wine that bears more than a passing resemblance to Château Pavie.
Wine Spectator – 90-93/100
Not shy with the fruit detail, this pumps out boysenberry, plum and loganberry sauce flavors, carried by velvety structure.
Vinous – Antonio Galloni – 90-93/100
The 2018 Arômes de Pavie is a gorgeous, sexy wine. Floral, silky and impeccable, the 2018 is impressive from the very first taste. The purity of the flavors is striking. Over the last few years Pavie has really upped their game with Arômes. The 2018 might be the best yet. Nuanced floral notes add the closing shades of complexity to this gracious, exquisite Saint-Émilion. Above all else, the Arômes de Pavie is absolutely delicious.
