93-94 James Suckling

"A juicy and rich wine with medium chewy tannins and a medium body. Racy. Plenty of crunchy fruit and energy. 50% merlot and 50% cabernet franc"

94-96 Jeb Dunnuck

"The second wine of this terrific château is the 2022 Aromes De Pavie, an even split of Merlot and Cabernet Sauvignon (the same blend as the 2020). It might be the greatest second wine in the vintage, displaying a classic Pavie style in its ripe red and black fruits as well as notes of camphor, chocolate, violets, and graphite. Rich and powerful, with medium to full-bodied richness, it's going to be ideal for drinking on release and over the following 15-20 years"

93 Jane Anson

"This is a well made wine with interest, and an impressive reflection of the terroir, carefuly made, can feel the construction and gentle extractions, showing a distinctive identity of loganberry, blackberry and oyster shell salinity. The most impressive of the Pavie range if you are looking to open a bottle within the next five to eight years. Harvest 22 September to 24. It remains 100% dedicated plots, none of the new additions (Pavie Decesse and Bellevue-Mondotte) are included here. Vines 50 years average age, 50% new oak"

93 Decanter

"Perfume and red summer berry fruits, aromatic and expressive. Plush and round but sharp and bright, this has a nice instant tang and shot of acidity that gives energy and life before the liquorice and flint tannins come into play. Feels nicely complete, if young and excitable. It’s serious but vibrant too. A touch too tannic but not harsh, more ripe and fleshy, but still with detail and definition and even though it’s massy you still get the mineral, flintiness with a lovely salty aftertaste. Charming and appealingly accessible. Ageing 50% new oak, 50% one year old barrels. Acidity 3.68. 3.74pH"

91-93 Robert Parker's Wine Advocate

"Composed of 50% Merlot and 50% Cabernet Franc, the 2020 Arômes de Pavie has an alcohol of 14.78% and a pH of 3.57. It is aging in French oak barriques, 70% new. Deep purple-black in color, it needs a little swirling to unleash its exuberant scents of stewed black plums, black cherry compote and boysenberries, plus hints of tar, sautéed herbs and chargrill. The full-bodied palate packs in the black fruit layers, framed by soft tannins and tons of freshness, finishing long and earthy." (5/2021)
