A Blend of 90% Merlot and 10% Cabernet Franc, with 14.5% natural alcohol, the higher percentage of Merlot in this wine than in the Pavie gives it a stunning opulence, thickness and luxuriousness. Opaque purple, with notes of mulberry and kirsch liqueur leaning toward blacker fruits, subtle smoked meats and some lead pencil and vanillin, this is another brawny, full-bodied, yet remarkably precise and fresh style of wine despite its sensational extract and power. Give it 5-6 years of cellaring and drink it over the following 30-40 years.||This vineyard has shrunk, as part of it was incorporated into its more famous sibling, Chateau Pavie. It is now 8.5 acres sitting slightly higher on the slope above Pavie. Wine Advocate.February, 2013

A blend of 90% Merlot and 10% Cabernet Franc, compared to the Monbousquet, there is just a slight jamminess on the nose that is denuding the Pavie-Decesse of a little freshness. The palate is full-bodied and dense, extraordinarily powerful with masculine, structure tannins and layers of black fruit. Good focus towards the finish, this will need 15 years to reach its drinking plateau. Tasted March 2011. Neal Martin erobertparker.com

This is so bright and beautiful with lovely aromas of dark fruits and flowers. Full and silky yet fresh and bright. Complex. jamessuckling.com

Hedonist alert-dense, fleshy layers of fig sauce, warm cocoa, dark currant confiture and exotic spice fill this red, which also shows plenty of grip, with a smoldering wood note on the back end. James Molesworth, winespectator.com

Dark crimson. Almost impenetrable colour. Very rich and thick and sweet to begin with. Rather angular on the mid palate. And very drying on the end. Inky. Very uncomfortable to taste. I don’t really see the point of drying the grapes to this extent. jancisrobinson.com

Another powerful offering from this Gérard Perse estate. Like sister Pavie, a wine of extremes with raisined notes and muscular tannic frame lifted by the freshness of the limestone terroir. Huge ageing potential but not everyone's cup of tea. James Lawther, decanter.com

This also has heavy tannins and acids with a similar richness of fruit, suggesting a long life into the 2040s, but perhaps an early start in the forthcoming decade.

This deep ruby coloured Pavie Decesse offers a ripe expression of the 2010 vintage. The plum, blackberry and cassis flavours are generous, round and well balanced by supple tannins. The flavours are densely packed but the fresh acidity adds lift and support. This is a well crafted, modern style -- not too thick nor overly ripe. Wait at least 5 years before approaching. asianpalate.com
