Medium garnet-brick in color, the 2000 Pavie needs a little swirl to coax out fragrant notes of dried roses, cinnamon stick, red loam, and fallen leaves leading to a core of kirsch, plum preserves, and blueberry compote plus a hint of cardamom. The medium to full-bodied palate is an exercise in grace and suppleness, featuring exquisitely ripe, silky tannins and seamless freshness to frame the achingly perfumed fruit, finishing so, so long and so, so fragrant. This was the first vintage using the "Eleanor" bottle shape that Pavie is well-known for today. - Lisa Perrotti-Brown, Wine Independent

Showing some maturity, the 2000 Pavie is about as sexy and opulent as Bordeaux gets. Blackcurrants, blackberries, toasted spice, truffle, and awesome minerality all emerge from this behemoth of a wine. From a magical terroir of steep limestone slopes and made from 60% Merlot, 30% Cabernet Franc and the rest Cabernet Sauvignon, it offers incredible depth and richness, yet stays elegant, light on its feet, and graceful. It’s an extraordinary, singular wine. Jeb Dunnuck

Just beginning to come around and strut its enormous potential, this wine at age 15 has been evolving like a glacier. The wine has an inky, opaque, plum/purple color and a stunningly rich nose of mulberries, bramble berries, blackberries, licorice and incense as well as touches of toast and graphite. Fabulously concentrated and full-bodied, with a multidimensional mouthfeel, this profound Pavie is in mid-adolescence. It should evolve and continue to drink well for at least another 30-40 years. This is clearly the first compelling effort made by the Perse family. Robert Parker
