Tasting Notes

Bottled the week of January 16 (a week before I tasted it), the 2009 Pavie Decesse (from a tiny 9-acre vineyard on the limestone slopes above Pavie) is an uncommonly fat, succulent, rich, 1,000-case cuvee with 14.3% alcohol. It boasts an inky/blue/purple hue along with notes of incense, spring flowers, roasted espresso, chocolate, licorice, blackberries and blueberries. Even though it is aged in 100% oak, the wood is virtually non-existent. An inky blend of 90% Merlot and 10% Cabernet Franc, the wine exhibits a flawless integration of acidity, alcohol and tannin. This opulent, viscous, thick, juicy St.-Emilion will be accessible in 5-7 years and last for three decades.

Provenance

This cellar is filled with outstanding Bordeaux from both 2009 and 2010 vintages and has just arrived, refrigerated from Alberta via our friends at Expeditr. The collector bought these wines as an investment, direct from winery and laid them down in his home cellar with full temperature and humidity control. Upon moving homes, this collector needed some extra space and decided to liquidate some of bottles. With many 100 pointers, this is a collection you will not want to miss out on!
