|Pavie Decesse||2003||Bordeaux (Red)||12 x 75cl||£1300||1||97 WA|
This amazing wine has turned out to be a modern-day classic. Like its bigger sister, Pavie, it has dropped some of its baby fat and exoticism, but remains a dense ruby/purple color with notes of mocha, mulberries and black cherry jam buttressed by serious, ripe tannin and decent acidity. Almost over-the-top in its youth, it has calmed down considerably, is well-delineated and pure with great balance as well as a full-bodied, vigorous, exuberant mouthfeel. One of the superstars of the vintage, the 2003 Pavie Decesse is capable of lasting another 10-15+ years.
