Until 1855, both Chateau Pavie and Chateau Pavie Decesse were part of the same vineyard. Chateau Pavie got the lion's share of the land, and it seems, most of the reputation. Pave Decesse, though, which produces up to 1,000 cases in total in a good vintage, has been making up for lost time lately, earning accolades of its own.

The vineyard is at the top of the St. Emillion plateau, above Pavie, The soil is clay and limestone based, and Pavie Decesse is planted 90% to Merlot and 10% to Cabernet Franc. This is usually a muscular wine, which might be a bit surprising given the amount of Merlot in the blend.

The 2006 Pavie Decesse is a superb effort from this small producer. Wine Spectator gave the wine 91 points, which is about the average of a number of critics. The wine is structured and firm, but is showing aromas of flowers as well as fruit. The flavour is full bodied and the finish is long. A good effort in a difficult year.
