Château Pavie 2020 – Saint-Emilion Grand Cru, Premier Grand Cru Classé A

The nose is elegant and offers power (in finesse), depth, (in control/ all in juiciness), a certain subtlety in its power, a very nice multi-layer side as well as a nice racy grain. A very nice controlled power. It reveals notes of bright blackberry, small bright blue berries, small notes of  cassis associated with touches of bright redcurrant, hints of cornflower, Badiane, lily as well as fine hints of varietal (local biotope), spices, a discreet hint of menthol, mocha and a discreet hint of cuben pepper. the mouth is fruity, balanced, racy and offers juiciness, a good definition, gourmandize, a nice suavity, a nice finesse of the grain, precision, a certain tension, a very nice freshness, a nice deepness. The wine expresses notes of juicy/pulpy blackberry, bright cassis, small notes of juicy/pulpy cherry associated with touches of caramelization, blond tabaco, a discreet hint of nearly sappy, a subtle hint of near dried orange zests and a discreet hint of pepper. the tannins are precis, elegant, racy, structuring and offer a small softness. a very nice length and persistence in the mouth. Presence of an imperceptible hint of coffee (in the background). A nice wine that will reveal the potential but one have to have patience for 10/15 years.
