Another spiffingly strong vintage from Pavie.
All of my wine is held in Bond at Vine International in London (UK), my cases are in perfect condition and typically all come in Original Wooden Case - My private agent Mr Robert Reed is managing the sale of my stock, and would love to talk to you about the wine and arrange shipping of the wine to your preferred location.
I have over 100 cases of this most excellent wine sitting in bond in London
100 Points - Robert Parker - "Just beginning to come around and strut its enormous potential, this wine at age 15 has been evolving like a glacier. The wine has an inky, opaque, plum/purple color and a stunningly rich nose of mulberries, bramble berries, blackberries, licorice and incense as well as touches of toast and graphite. Fabulously concentrated and full-bodied, with a multidimensional mouthfeel, this profound Pavie is in mid-adolescence. It should evolve and continue to drink well for at least another 30-40 years. This is clearly the first compelling effort made by the Perse family"
100 Points - Jeb Dunnuck - "Showing some maturity, the 2000 Pavie is about as sexy and opulent as Bordeaux gets. Blackcurrants, blackberries, toasted spice, truffle, and awesome minerality all emerge from this behemoth of a wine. From a magical terroir of steep limestone slopes and made from 60% Merlot, 30% Cabernet Franc and the rest Cabernet Sauvignon, it offers incredible depth and richness, yet stays elegant, light on its feet, and graceful. It’s an extraordinary, singular wine."
99 Points - Neal Martin - "The 2000 Pavie has actually been tasted twice within several days, the first bottle shows a little more warmth than the second. Like other vintages it is matured in 200% new wood. It is slightly deeper in colour than the 1998. It has a showstopper of a nose: blackberry, crème de cassis and violets, a little more mineralité than the 1998. The palate is full-bodied with a disarming silkiness, layers of cassis and black cherry-driven fruit, very fine tannin and stunning purity. Does it express the terroir as well as say the 2015 Pavie? That is a question for debate, although you cannot argue that this is a great Pavie. Tasted at Berry Brothers & Rudd Pavie dinner. 2020 - 2050"
If wine is to be judged by what is in the bottle, Pavie has become a fabulous first-growth quality estate, offering extraordinary elegance married to awesome levels of richness. The 2000 is a backward effort with structure and tannin. At the same time, the concentration is fabulous. Structured, with an opaque ruby/purple color, Pavie's 2000 exhibits aromas of liquid minerals, black cherry liqueur, cassis, and flowers. The wine is full-bodied yet extraordinarily precise, with uncanny elegance, fabulous purity, and astonishing length. Although elevated, the tannin is sweet as well as nicely integrated. However, this 2000 will require considerable patience. Anticipated maturity#58 2010-2040. Except for some of Bordeaux's provincial knuckleheads (who resent outsiders), this is widely acclaimed as one of the region's most singular and greatest wines.
