Occasional Wine Note:  Whoever said that no wine achieves perfection has not tasted this offering. This is definitely one of the top 10 wines we've ever tasted. A Merlot blend that really sets the standard by which all others aspire. This is a wine you'll want to save for the perfect occasion with someone who can appreciate its majesty. Take your time and savor every sip through its incredible finish. There is so much going on here from the ripe dark fruits to the chewy tannin to the floral and baking spice undertones. This is just one of those wines you will never forget and always measure others against. Perfect!

    Pure perfection in red wine, the 2020 Château Pavie checks in as 50% Merlot, 34% Cabernet Franc and the rest Cabernet Sauvignon, all raised in 75% new French oak. Absolutely incredible in every way, it has a sensational bouquet of crème de cassis, smoked tobacco, chocolaty oak, graphite, white truffle, and hints of flowers. Pure, full-bodied, and concentrated, with perfect integration of its fruit, oak, and tannins, it's one of those wines that needs to be tasted to be believed. Hats off to the Perse team for not following trends and for continuing to make a truly Grand Vin that offers a rare mix of power and elegance.

    This opens up on your palate like a butterfly. It takes your breath away. Purity of blackberry, raspberry and black cherry. Lavender. Very, very impressive. Full and chewy with tight and polished tannins that go on and on. Energetic and structured. Crisp and vivid. Superb finish.
