En Mag from @Joe Lucca this is still shedding tannin and bordering on overripe but it really does a good job of not falling over the precipice of this hot vintage. Not as much my style anymore but an excellent peek. Does what it does well.

Still plenty of life with enough acid to warrant a few more years before trying again. But very nice showing. Takes me back to Paris.

In a word: Napaesque.

I just made that word up...but it seems to capture the essence of what's going on here. This fat baby has 10-15+ years to reach its apogee.

An excellent example of classified Merlot based right bank Bordeaux drinking and aging well. Intense tannins, plum, and minerals. Not the green pasture mess.

Oh my! Pavie never lets you down. Scrumptious on so many levels.

The English club is right: if you think this is a good wine, you definatetely need new brains... 82/100
