Esprit de Pavie is one of the great Bordeaux sleeper bargains of the 2015 vintage with a most intriguing blend. The Pavie team blends younger-vine fruit from Chateaux Pavie and Monbousquet, both located on the famed St. Emilion limestone plateau, with superb selections from Cotes de Castillon which shares the limestone soils as St. Emilion creating a superb bargain. Esprit de Pavie is composed with 65% Merlot, 20% Cabernet Franc and 15% Cabernet Sauvignon. Delicious dark fruits, vanilla and chocolates with medium tannins and the limestone drive and lift on the finish.
