Château Pavie-Decesse 2016 – Saint-Emilion Grand Cru Classé

The nose is fresh, fruity and offers a slight gourmandise, a slight concentration as well as a slight fleshy. It reveals notes of fleshy/juicy blackberry and slight notes of fresh/ripe cassis associated with a hint of blueberry, slight notes of ripe small black fruits as well as a discreet hint of coffee, chocolate and a hint of caramelization. The palate is fruity, juicy, mineral, well-balanced, very well-defined and offers a good minerality, a slight freshness, a nice fat, a slight tension as well as a silky matter. In the mouth this wine expresses notes of fleshy/juicy blackberry and slight notes of fresh/ripe cassis, fresh Gariguette strawberry associated with a discreet hint of toasted oak, chocolate as well as a discreet hint of cardamom. Tannins are fine and well-built. Good length and persistence. There is an imperceptible hint of crushed hazelnut on the persistence.
