Peter Maude Fine Wines

2020, Château Pavie-Decesse, SAINT-ÉMILION, Grand Cru Classé


Bordeaux Blend: Merlot, Cabernet Franc.

Balanced, sleek and poised, plenty of character, a real push and pull, it expands and contracts, the oak is well masked and there is a sense of energy. This is an enjoyable wine, easy to recommend, but I think this may be the first vintage where I have thought that its sibling Pavie is a clear step up. 80% new oak, 3.53pH, from up on the limestone plateau. A yield of 17hl/ha. 95/100 Jane Anson, Decanter.

Drinking Window: 2026 - 2042
