Winemaker Notes

This wine, an assemblage from young vines, displays a very attractive purple color that is deep, clear and characteristically youthful in appearance. Notes of fresh blackberry define an aromatic profile which is clean, fresh and lively, supporting a fine, delicate oak character that subtly respects the wine's fruit. In the mouth a firm, gripping texture shows off well-incorporated, finely-grained tannins to impart an attractive balance. This wine is fresh, with a long and delicious finish. With time to breathe, its crisp, black-fruit identity and aged character shows this to be a well-crafted wine. The vintage is one which offers immediate pleasure. Drink now, but there's no danger in letting it rest in the cellar for another 2 to 5 years.

JS 93
James Suckling
A juicy and rich red with blackberry and black-truffle aromas and flavors. Layered and beautifully toned. Full-bodied, round and juicy. Beautiful wine. Really well done. Drink or hold.
RP 90
Robert Parker's Wine Advocate
This vintage is a blend of 65% Merlot, 20% Cabernet Franc and 15% Cabernet Sauvignon and was aged for 15 months in one-year-old barrels. Deep garnet-purple colored, the 2015 Esprit de Pavie (a blend of vines in Côtes do Castillon and young vines from Pavie and Monbousquet) opens with expressive red and black plums notes plus touches of baking spices, vanilla pod, dark chocolate and dried Provence herbs. Medium to full-bodied, the bright fruit fills the mouth with plenty of spicy red and black fruits, supported by chewy tannins and finishing with a refreshing lift.

Esprit de Pavie, France
Esprit de Pavie Chateau Pavie   Winery Image

As owners of the iconic Châteaux, Pavie, Pavie-Decesse, Monbousquet, Bellevue-Mondotte, and Clos Lunelles, Gérard Perse and the Perse Family have redefined their legacy. Beginning in the 90's, Gérard and his family set forth to re-invigorate some of the most sought after wines of the Right Bank. Tremendous investment in each winery, vineyard, as well as the expertise of the legendary Bordeaux winemaker Michel Rolland, has reestablished each Châteaux as the best of their appellations.

Fast-forward to 2008, Monsieur Perse along with his team saw a re-imagined expression of the complexity of terroirs found on the Right Bank. By selecting premium holdings from young vines of Château Pavie and blending the fruit with two estate-owned vineyards in Castillon-Côtes de Bordeaux, Esprit de Pavie was born. The sites selected for Esprit de Pavie from the Dordogne Valley -- characterized by sandy-gravelly foothills, clay hillsides and clay-limestone plateau -- manifest supple fruit, dense tannin and structure, with intense depth of flavor. This is world-class wine at its finest -- no other premier estate in Bordeaux offers this quality to price.

In most of France, wines are named by their place of origin and not by the type of grape (with the exception of Alsace). Just like a red Burgundy is by law, always made of Pinot noir, a red Bordeaux is a blended wine composed mainly of Cabernet Sauvignon and Merlot. Depending on the laws of the village from which the grapes come, the conditions of the vintage and decisions of the winemaker, the blend can be further supported by Cabernet Franc, Malbec, Petit Verdot and in rare cases, Carmenere. So popular and repeated has this mix of grape varieties become worldwide, that the term, Bordeaux Blend, refers to a wine blended in this style, regardless of origin.
