Moncharm | Château Pavie 2003
Another masterpiece from the proprietors Gerard Perse an Chantal, Château Pavie 2003 is a brilliant blend of 70% Merlot, 20% Cabernet Franc, and 10% Cabernet Sauvignon.

The wine has an alluring inky purple colour and offers enchanting aromas of black cherries, minerals, balsamic, liquorice and smoke. It treats the palate with a full-bodied, rich and remarkably fresh texture. The finish is slightly tannic. This label will be approachable in 4 to 5 years and will easily drink well till 2040.
Sitting on the slope of a hill located on the south east of the Saint-Émilion, Château Pavie's long history goes back to the 14th century. The vineyard and the buildings are segregated in three levels on the hill slope. This estate proudly possesses the largest Premier Grand Cru Classés vineyard in Saint-Émilion. The current proprietors Chantal and Gérard Perse are perfectionists and have made some significant changes to uphold the quality of the produce.
Saint-Émilion is Equipped with the most diverse terroir in the Bordeaux region. The vineyards are planted on the clay-rich soil which is ideal for the growth of Merlot that is a prime component of all wines produced here. There are two Premier Grand Crus Classés (A), Château Cheval-Blanc and Château Ausone and thirteen Premier Grand Crus Classés (B) in this region.
