The Chateau Pavie-Decesse 2007 reveals a beautiful, dense color. The nose takes time to unfold, but you can smell small concentrated black berry, fruit brandy and spice as the aromas start to aerate. The attack on the palate shows a great frankness with tight-knit tannins that avoid being austere. On the mid-palate, the wine gives a beautiful delicacy. The finish is long and quite catchy. Best to consume right now.
