Planted in pure limestone above Gerard Perse’s other famous vineyard/terroir, Château Pavie, this 10-acre site’s vines average 47 years of age. Fashioned from remarkably low yields, this blend of 90% Merlot and 10% Cabernet Franc is a powerful, dense, tannic wine that will require considerable time to round into shape.
It exhibits a dense purple color along with sweet aromas of mulberries, black currants, minerals, cold steel, graphite, and background spice. Full-bodied, highly-extracted, dense, and made in an unfashionably tannic, broodingly backward style, this is a wine for the ages. It requires 8-10 years of cellaring and should last for 25-30+.


Although Pavie Decesses's reputation exists in the shadow of its glorious older sibling, Château Pavie it is nonetheless treated with the same respect. Purchased by Gérard Perse in 1997 (one year before he bought Château Pavie) situated on the limestone plateau of Saint-Emilion, Pavie-Decesse is one of the "happy few” Saint-Emilion Grands Crus Classés.

Enjoying the same attention as Château Pavie, whose terroir it essentially shares, Pavie-Decesse achieves a consistency of quality which is the definition of a Great Growth.
