This has beautiful presence and finesse with lovely fruit, mineral and light walnut character. Center palate is gorgeous. Long and refined. Perhaps better than the superb 2015. - James Suckling

The 2016 Pavie-Decesse is sumptuous, succulent and beautifully resonant on the palate. Plum, lavender, spice and licorice are all nicely pushed forward. Time in the glass lets the flavors gain in both brightness and focus. Round, supple and textured, the 2016 possesses exceptional balance. Silky tannins and creamy, voluptuous fruit add to the wine's appeal. 

Vibrant raspberry, boysenberry and plum notes stream along, flecked with anise and floral notes and carried by a wonderfully racy and well-embedded chalky spine. Fruit-driven, but grounded in terroir. - James Molesworth, Wine Spectator

The 2016 Pavie-Decesse is a blend of 90% Merlot and 10% Cabernet Franc cropped at just 26 hectoliters per hectare and delivers 14.63% alcohol with a pH of 3.43. It was picked on 12 October and will be matured in 100% new oak. It has a very flamboyant nose for the vintage, eschewing the classicism you might find elsewhere in Saint Emilion with luscious macerated black cherries, blueberry and vanilla pod aromas, a hint of iodine developing in the glass. The palate is full-bodied with succulent, juicy ripe blue and black fruit, the acidity maintaining the freshness and with an almost viscous finish due to the concentration. It is atypical for the vintage, hedonistic and creamy in texture. Go for this if you seek fruit and concentration in 2016. - Neal Martin, Wine Advocate
