This is a compelling effort. A blend of 70% Merlot, 20% Cabernet Franc, and 10% Cabernet Sauvignon (cropped at 30 hectoliters per hectare), the 2004 Pavie represents the Lafite Rothschild of St.-Emilion. A wine of great intensity, irrefutable minerality, a wonderful fragrance, and a tremendously long finish, this black/purple-colored, medium to full-bodied, vibrant effort boasts wonderful sweetness, but more minerality and definition than the blockbuster 2003 (which appears to be taking on more minerality as it ages). The 2004 is similar to the 2001, with additional focus and elegance. A profound effort, copious quantities of black raspberries, cherries, crushed rocks, and violets are followed by medium to full body, a precise palate with laser-like precision, beautiful fruit, a multilayered texture, and a long, sweetly tannic finish. Anticipated maturity: 2008-2025+. Tasted: Apr 2005; Rating: 95-97 Points; Robert Parker; Robert Parker's The Wine Advocate
