James Suckling   97-98/100

Powerful young red with blackberry and blueberry aromas and flavors. Full-bodied, very strong and concentrated with great length and minerality at the end. Finesse with power.

Jancis Robinson   16/20

90% Merlot, 10% Cabernet Franc. Barrel sample. Black core, almost no rim. Intense, pure cassis nose and a touch of spice – gingerbread? Extremely tannic and all tied up in the tannins. So extracted but surprisingly fresh, just too dry from those tannins; in fact, I think the acidity (pH is 3.57) may be hardening the tannins. I really am not sure about this, perhaps in 10 years? (JH) 14.5% Drink 2028-2035

Parker   96-98

Lisa Perrotti-Brown. Grapes for this wine come from the plateau and were harvested October 3 with yields of 32 hectoliters per hectare. Composed of 90% Merlot and 10% Cabernet Franc with a pH of 3.57 and 14.52% alcohol, the 2018 Pavie Decesse is deep purple-black in color and strides confidently out of the glass with a very serious nose of crushed blackberries, warm black plums, mulberries and cassis plus touches of camphor, lavender, black olives and crushed rocks with a waft of woodsmoke. Full-bodied and laden with taut, muscular black fruit and loads of mineral accents, it has a firm structure of super ripe, finely grained tannins and amazing freshness, finishing very long and very layered.
