September 6, 2012 marked the day Chateau Pavie was upgraded in the official 2012 St. Emilion Classification to Chateau Pavie, St. Emilion, Premier Grand Cru Classe A on September 2012 capping a rich history of development dating back to Roman times. The slopes of Chateau Pavie were first planted by the ancient Romans in the fourth century. However, Chateau Pavie did not become famous as a Saint Emilion wine producer until almost two thousand years. In 1998, Gerard Perse, who already owned Chateau Monbousquet purchased Chateau Pavie from the Valette family for $31,000,000. Chateau Pavie experienced a rebirth thanks to the drive and the spare no expense attitude of Gerard Perse and Chantal Perse. At the time of the purchase, the vineyards were in poor shape. Pavie required extensive replanting to reach the proper level of vine density. The Chateau Pavie vineyard is farmed using sustainable, vineyard management techniques.
Chateau Pavie is a unique style of Bordeaux wine. The wine is deeply colored. In fact it’s often opaque in the best years. Chateau Pavie is rich, filled with minerality and a special purity of fruit that only comes from the world’s best wines. It’s mouth filling with its density, offering a fabulous intensity of flavors that often resemble plums, blackberry, truffle, chocolate, licorice, blueberry and spice, with minerality. Pavie pairs elegance with power and concentration with the ability to age and evolve for decades. In fact, Pavie is not a great wine to drink young.
