CHATEAU PAVIE, 2000

SAINT-EMILION GRAND CRU

“A wine which was widely talked about when it was first released. Ten years later, it still has excellent character. With a brilliant youth, a palate full of fat and an opulent fruit, it especially has a gorgeous balance and great texture on the palate. As its finish has an impressive length, it can age several decades.” - Revue du Vin de France

Histoire et anecdotes

In 1998, Gerard Perse acquired Château Pavie. Major investments began in the Château in order to give its reputation back. Michel Rolland acted as consulting oenologist and the architect Alberto Pinto redesigned the estate. In 2012, the excellence of Château Pavie became well-known thanks to its promotion and “A” classification as Premier Grand Cru in the Saint-Emilion appellation.

Since antiquity, the estate has been well-known for its fruit production, especially the Pavie peaches. The Château was named after them.

Robert Parker gave the Château's vintage 2000 the mark of 100/100, classifying it in the worldwide best wines.
