Back in ancient times, this estate was known for its cultivation of fruit, particularly the Pavia peach which would later become the namesake of the 19th-century château. Owned in those days by the Valette family, the château earned a Premier Grand Cru Classé B Saint-Emilion ranking in 1955. Since its purchase in 1997, the estate has gone from strength to strength. The 2012 reboot of the Saint-Emilion classification saw Pavie elevated to the status of Saint-Emilion Premier Grand Cru classé A. Pavie's vineyard is the most spread out of all the Saint Emilion premiers crus, and also has the oldest vines in the appellation, some of which go back more than a century. The product of manual harvests and low yields (28-30 hl/ha), Pavie's wines are aged for up to 24 months in new oak barrels.

10% cabernet sauvignon, 60% merlot, 30% cabernet franc

Tasting Profile

Characteristic powerful bouquet with notes of cherries, blueberries, blackberries, prunes, roasted coffee and oak.
After a lively attack on the palate, with powerful but very refined tannins, the wines present exceptional richness and magnificent length.
