The 2014 Pavie-Decesse is laced with inky blue/purplish fruit, crème de cassis, lavender, violet and cloves that all flesh out in the glass. This is one of the most unctuous, powerful 2014s readers will come across. There is plenty of underpinning of structure to balance things out, but still, my impression is that Pavie-Decesse could be a materially better wine with less pushed extraction and less oak influence overall. There is more personality here than at Pavie, but it needs a different approach to fully come through.

Formidable aromas of blueberries and raspberries as well as blackberries. Chalk undertones. Full-bodied, very intense and focused with salt, chalk and berry character and a savory undertone. Wonderful potential. Better in 2022.
