Pavie stands for the small vine-grown peaches that previously occupied this Saint-Émilion plot of land prior to the 4th century. Today, Château Pavie carries its heritage in its name, and stands as the largest Premier Grand Cru Classé in the entire appellation. With 37-hectares of continuous vines and ample amounts of sunshine, this remarkable south-facing lot can be classified into three specific terroirs. The newly redesigned estate by Alberto Pinto, has a large glass façade that offers an outstanding view of the hillside vineyard, some even claim it’s "the most beautiful spot in Saint-Émilion.” Purchased by Gérard Perse in 1998, owner of the Pavie-Decesse and Monbousquet châteaux, Pavie is now one of the greatest new wave producers. Pavie, like the other Perse wines have developed into late-harvested and highly extracted reds, balanced by their dichotomy of opulence and delicacy. Promoted to the Premier Grand Cru Classé A status in 2012, the Grand Vin, Pavie is an exemplarily Perse wine, vinified with a modern approach, the result is rich, concentrated and high in quality.
