The 2015 Pavie Decesse is aromatically lifted, precise and nuanced, and yet there is plenty of underlying richness. Sweet red cherry, pomegranate, blood orange and exotic flowers are front and center. Silky tannins and expressive, floral notes make the Pavie-Decesse the most feminine among Gerard Perse's three top Saint-Émilions, yet there is no shortage of intensity as well. The Pavie Decesse is unquestionably one of the most sexy, sensual wines of the vintage. This is pure class. The blend is 90% Merlot and 10% Cabernet Franc from 50+ year-old vines. Yields were just 18 hectoliters per hectare, the lowest of any of the Perse properties. Apr 2016, www.Vinous.com

The 2015 Pavie-Decesse is a blend of 90% Merlot and 10% Cabernet Franc matured entirely in new oak. The nose is backward at first and needed much encouragement in the glass, eventually revealing black cherries, crème de cassis, blood orange and almost honeyed aromas. The palate is medium-bodied with rounded tannin, a modest level of acidity, fine grained with a spicy finish that lingers with a peppery aftertaste. It is an assertive Pavie-Decesse, particularly at the end where it cannot compete with the 2015 Pavie in terms of clarity, but the components will come together with 4-5 years in bottle.

This shows a power and finesse at the same time with silky and refined tannins and a pretty. Such precision and length. Gorgeous, racy. Mar 2016, www.JamesSuckling.com

Beautiful, with remarkably lush raspberry, plum and cassis flavors that glide over a substantial yet creamy structure. The finish has beautiful flow. Dressed for the ball, but stays refined thanks to minimal accessorizing. Mar 2016, James Molesworth, www.WineSpectator.com

90% Merlot. Yield 17 hl/ha. Very old vines - average age 51 years. Very deep, glowing crimson. Juicy and succulent. Just enough fruit to overwhelm the considerable tannins. Good freshness. No water stress on the limestone plateau apparently. Should soften. Impressive! Bonsai stuff. Apr 2016, www.JancisRobinson.com, Drink: 2025-2040

90% Merlot from 3.65ha. True to style: ripe, powerful and firm with marked tension but more refinement in the texture this year. One for the cellar. Apr 2016, James Lawther MW, www.Decanter.com, Drink: 2028-2040
