IV Century, the first vines are planted in Saint-Emilion on the "Pavie Hillside”. Before this period red-fleshed peaches grew on these hills, a variety of fruit called "Pavie peaches” which gave their name to the vineyard. In time, peaches give way to vines. 2005 is the eighth vintage of Pavie produced under the ownership of Mme. and Mr. Perse, and it was a classic year that demonstrated that the château has a truly exceptional terroir.
Grape Varieties: 65% Merlot, 25% Cabernet Franc and 10% Cabernet Sauvignon.
The 2005 color is a deep and dense purple, with violet highlights which underscore the wine's youth. Its clean aromas highlight the good intensity and well-defined fruitiness. Black currants, blueberries and assorted black fruit are present, together with flattering chocolate and spicy notes derived from careful aging in barrel. The first impression on the palate is faultless, and the quality of the vintage becomes evident as its taste evolves. The finish is mouth-watering and long, worthy of a great Saint-Emilion. This is a beautiful, polished 2005 whose powerful and fine structure produces a full and round impression.
