I enjoyed this wine in a tasting of 5 2005 Red Bordeaux's.  This wine was more inky in color and rich in comparison to the others.  Reminded me of some Washington or California blends where the Cab Franc comes through, (L'Ecole 41's Perigee from 2004 in particular).  Some nice soft earth tones shone through.  Delicious.

This is the 3rd time I've tasted this wine. Once in the U.S. last Spring, once in Bordeaux in April 08 and now...Freaking delicious. This deep ruby colored full-bodied blend is the second label of St. Emilion's prodigal wine "Pavie". Complex fruit driven aromas of wild strawberry, raspberry, dried currant, and cassis with a subtle coffee undertone. Plush and velvety in the mid-palate while remaining bright and lively. The finish is smoothe and quite simply delicious. This is Pavie-esque without having to spend $200

Pavie? No? Darn...but you're related, huh? Alright.

I am an emotional person, and beauty and beautiful moments have been known to push me to tears, and I have to say that the excitement I felt knowing I was drinking a wine that came from the same grapes that made Pavie could have made me cry if I wasn't in the company of a whole lot of my peers.  I know I have very little chance of ever drinking the real deal, so to get this close and for it to deliver this well, I'll take it any day of the week.  It was so smooth and the flavors exciting and complex...and it was already showing so much as a 2005.  Think of it in a couple years!  So, yeah, you can't always get what you want.  But if you try sometimes, you might find, you get what you need!  Ain't that the truth, Mick Jagger!

Dark ruby in the core, intense and almost black in the middle; bright ruby red rim. A full, rich nose of orange zest, blueberry, wet clay, black licorice, black cherries, cassis and a nice hint of slate. The palate entry is powerful: the fruits are impressively soft for such a young wine, and the bold ripe tannins build through the mid-palate. Blueberry and red cherry flavors circle around dark earthy notes. Starting to be approachable now, and should build in complexity over the next 5 - 7 years
