The origins of this property date back many years. The vines were cultivated on the slopes of what is now Chateau Pavie as early as the 4th century. Owned by Chantal and Gerard Perse since March 1998, Chateau Pavie, 1er Grand Cru Classe "A", has one of the most beautiful terroirs of Saint-Emilion. Chateau Pavie is renowned for the structure and elegance of its wines.
Aromes de Pavie became the name of Chateau de Pavie’s Second Wine in 2005, following that of Chateau Tour Simard.
Aromes de Pavie 2021 is a Saint-Emilion wine made from vines that are mostly less than 10 years old and from plots that do not fit into the estate’s First Wine. With an average age of 52 years, the 13.5-hectare vineyard is located on the southeast side of the Saint-Emilion hill, on a "plateau" of clay-limestone soil over asteroid limestone. Particular attention is paid to the vineyard, such as pruning adjusted to the age of each vine, green harvest and leaf-stripping.
