Marks and reviews
The origins of the estate go back a very long way. Vines have been cultivated on the slopes of what is now Château Pavie since the 4th century. Owned by Chantal and Gérard Perse since March 1998, Château Pavie, Premier Grand Cru Classé "A," boasts one of the finest terroirs in Saint-Émilion. Château Pavie is renowned for the structure and elegance of its wines.
Arômes de Pavie became the label for Château Pavie's Second Wine in 2005, succeeding that of Château Tour Simard.
Arômes de Pavie 2022 is a Saint-Émilion wine made from vines that are an average of 53 years old, located in the south-east of the Saint Émilion hillside. This 13.5-hectare vineyard is planted on the "plateau," which consists of clay-limestone soil above asteriated limestone. Special attention is paid to the vineyard: pruning, green harvesting and leaf removal vary according to the age of the vines.
