The 2020 vintage of Château Pavie marks a turning point for one of the benchmark estates of St. Emilion. Scored 99-100 points by James Suckling and released at slightly below the price of the 2019, the style is moving in a new direction, emphasising terroir and elegance over concentration.
To us, this is a very welcome move and James Lawther MW and Jane Anson both celebrate it too, the latter commenting that the 2020 "shows the limestone terroir in a way that, with the best will in the world, the more concentrated style of Pavie just didn't do."
This is, without doubt, a vintage in which Merlot has shone and a year in which right bank wines will excel.
