One of the best-known St. Emilions, vinified in an elegant style, the 2010 delivers tantalizing candied violets and tapenade over a gorgeous core of prunes, fruitcake and blueberries. This full-bodied blend of 70% Merlot, 20% Cabernet Franc and 10% Cabernet Sauvignon is powerful perfection with a flawless balance of purity and freshness. This is the kind of wine that sees its centennial, but we won’t judge if you enjoy it this year.

Deep garnet in color, the 2010 Pavie delivers tantalizing suggestions of candied violets, star anise and tapenade over a core of prunes, blueberry compote, Morello cherries and fruitcake with touches of underbrush and bouquet garni. Full-bodied, rich and exotically opulent, the palate has a rock-solid texture of velvety tannins and bold freshness supporting the generous palate of black and blue berry preserves, finishing long and fragrant.
