Pavie 2020 released

Pavie was released today, being offered to the UK market for £2,890 per dozen, 3.3% less than the 2019 was on release (£2,990) but up 6.7% on the 2019’s current Market Price of £2,707.

One of the famed wines of Saint Emilion, just around the corner from Angelus, this wine has certainly received high praise from the critics.

James Suckling awarded the wine 99-100 points, saying: “The intensity and verve of this wine promises true greatness.”

Jane Anson at Decanter meanwhile scored it 97, noting: “The Cabernets dominate the blend on the aromatics, and you can really see they are moving the needle on the architecture and sculpting of this wine.”

We were initially interested in looking at this wine for investment purposes – however, looking at the performance of this wine since 2014, not one of the vintages has increased in value.

We believe there will be many other better buys in this campaign, so we will politely decline our allocations here.
