Average critic rating : 86.5 points



I may have badly misled readers when I last rated this wine (giving it an (86-88) range of score). Now that it has been bottled, the 1995 Pavie-Decesse is extraordinarily austere, with elevated tannin levels, some sweet black currant, cranberry, and cherry fruit, but a hollow mid-palate, and a dry, sharp finish with noticeable astringent tannin. I liked this wine much better from three separate cask tastings, but two tastings from bottle have made me question my earlier reviews. Anticipated maturity: 2002-2010.||This well-situated estate on the limestone hillsides of St.-Emilion was recently sold to Gerard Perse, which is great news. The 1997 I tasted in November is the most impressive Pavie-Decesse produced in a long, long time. The 1995 and 1996 vintages were made under the old administration and are far more angular, lean, and austere than those that will emerge under the new regime. Wine Advocate.February, 1998



Really delicious, with crushed blackberries and raspberries. Full-bodied and chunky, with lots of fruit and velvety tannins. Impressive finish. Very long. Best after 2002. James Suckling, Wine Spectator 1998
