Premier grand cru classé A - Saint-Émilion

The château Pavie, owned by Gérard Perse, is a 37-hectare wine-growing estate. It is located in Saint-Émilion, in the Gironde region.

The Château Pavie, formerly Premier Grand Cru Classé B in the latest classification of Saint-Emilion wines in 2006, was promoted to Premier Grand Cru Classé A in 2012 alongside Angélus. A promotion acquired thanks to the great investment of Gérard Perse and the precious advice of Michel Rolland (who, moreover, largely contributed to the fame of the Domaine).

The château Pavie is a typical Saint-Emilion from the Côtes, in which finesse far outweighs the fatness and silkiness of the appellation. It has an average yield of 35 hl/ha. The average age of the vines is 45 years and the blend of the Pavie grape varieties largely contributes to making an exceptional wine:

  • Merlot 60%
  • Cabernet franc 30%
  • Cabernet Sauvignon 10%

As the vines are south-facing, the climatic conditions are ideal. The terroir is conducive to the production of a great wine.

The vinification of Pavie is done in oak barrels. Fermentation is done in thermo-regulated wooden vats and is followed by an ageing period of 18 to 24 months in new barrels.

The result is a powerful, rich, elegant, dense and complex wine without forgetting its remarkable ageing potential.

The Château Pavie produces 88,000 bottles. It is widely exported with only 40 000 bottles of this wine for the French market.

The estate also produces a second wine named "Les Arômes de Pavie" mainly from the youngest vines under 10 years old. Although this is its second wine, the estate takes the same care with it as it does with its first wine, both in viticulture and winemaking.
