From Chantal and Gérard Perse, this St.-Emilion is a blend of 90% Merlot and 10% Cabernet Franc. It is interesting that the small vineyard of 8.5 acres (which I have walked) sits above Pavie on a steep, pure limestone outcrop. This is the quintessential limestone-based wine, with a liquor of powdered chalk mixed with cassis and blackberry. Very concentrated (almost painfully so), this highly extracted, full-bodied, massive, rich, and powerful wine needs cellaring. Everything is present for a great future. This is one of the superstars of the vintage. Unfortunately, the production of Pavis Decesse is minuscule, as a large section of the vineyard was incorporated into Pavie. This wine, with its opaque purple color and great density and richness, is a connoisseur’s dream. Forget it for 5-8 years and drink it over the following three decades.
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.
