Esprit de Pavie 2016 is an assemblage of 100% estate-owned fruit from Ch teau Pavie and Castillon-C tes de Bordeaux. The wine displays a very attractive purple color that is deep and youthful in appearance. Notes of fresh blackberry define the aromatic profile which is clean, fresh and lively, supporting a fine, delicate oak character that subtly respects the wine’s fruit. A firm, gripping texture shows off well-integrated, finely-grained tannins imparting an attractive balance. This wine is fresh, with a long and delicious finish. The vintage is one which offers immediate pleasure. Drink now, but there’s no danger in letting it rest in the cellar for another decade. Blend: 65% Merlot, 20% Cabernet Franc, 15% Cabernet Sauvignon Extremely aromatic with kir, cherries and flowers. Medium to full body, firm and silky tannins. Juicy fruit. So round and inviting now. Drink and enjoy. The entry-level wine of the estate is the 2016 Esprit de Pavie, which is primarily Merlot blended with 30% Cabernet Franc, coming from Saint Emilion and the Castillon region. This total charmer has a sweet bouquet of black cherries, licorice, and spice to go with a mouthfilling, pure, balanced style on the palate that’s already delicious. It certainly has estate character and is ideal for enjoying over the coming decade or so. I’d happily drink bottles.
