St Emilion. The finest bottle I have ever tasted of the 2003 Pavie. I found this wine powerful, disjointed, and nearly over the top when it was first bottled, but it has calmed down considerably, and this bottle was pure nectar. Rich and full-bodied with superb definition and purity, but none of the so-called late harvest characteristics that have been falsely attributed to it. It's a beauty that appears to be on a much faster evolutionary track than the 2000. 99 points, Robert Parker, Hedonist Gazette February 11th 2007

This 92-acre vineyard, which enjoys an impeccable southern orientation, is composed of limestone on the upper slopes, clay and limestone in the middle, and sand and clay at the base. Proprietor Gerard Perse, who has done a brilliant job since acquiring the estate in 1998, continues to push the envelope of quality to higher and higher heights. Planted with 70% Merlot, 20% Cabernet Franc, and 10% Cabernet Sauvignon, the grapes receives kid glove treatment with hand-harvesting into small plastic lugs, two triage tables, and aging for 28 months in 100% new oak that is purchased in advance, then air-dried and coopered according to Perse
