The Wine Advocate – 97-100/100
The 2019 Pavie is a blend of 50% Merlot, 32% Cabernet Franc and 18% Cabernet Sauvignon, harvested from the 30th of September to the 11th of October. The yields this year were 35 hectoliters per hectare, and the alcohol came in at 14.73%, while the pH was 3.55 (remarkably low!). Very deep garnet-purple in color, the nose opens with a beguiling array of intertwined earth and black fruit scents: baked plums, black cherry preserves, tilled soil, black truffles, mossy tree bark and mulberries with nuances of allspice, clove oil, espresso and cedar chest. Full-bodied, densely packed and with a rock-solid structure, the constrained flavor layers are just waiting to explode; it’s framed by firm, exquisitely ripe, rounded tannins and this vineyard’s signature freshness, finishing with epic length and depth. Quaking with latent power and shimmering with a kaleidoscope of electric flavors, this could only be Pavie.

Vinous – Antonio Galloni – 96-98/100
The 2019 Pavie-Decesse is off the charts brilliant. Blueberry jam, graphite, menthol, licorice, espresso, lavender and cloves are some of the many nuances that unfold in a statuesque Saint-Émilion of dizzying scale. Big, brawny and powerful, the 2019 is going to require years in bottle to blossom, but it is immensely promising and very clearly a great wine in the making. Yields were just 17 hectoliters per hectare. Sadly, production is down about 40% because two parcels are being redeveloped. The use of only the healthiest parcels most likely explains why Pavie-Decesse is so exceptional in 2019. Henrique Da Costa, Gérard Perse’s son-in-law, explained that while 2019 was hot and dry, conditions were not extremely hot. Cool temperatures in the evenings provided respite from the daytime heat, while water reserves in the soils from the wet spring allowed the vines to avoid stress. As for the wines, they are superb across the board. Most of the attention will naturally center on Pavie, but the entire range is terrific.

J. Suckling – 98-99/100
