SUMMARYChateau Pavi wine estate is located in St. Emilion, one of the most beautiful wine regions in Bordeaux, France. Pavie was built on an ancient Gallo-Roman site and occupies 18 hectares (44 acres) near the heart of St Emilion itself. The three plots are planted with 85% Merlot, 14% Cabernet Franc and only a small proportion of Cabernet Sauvignon which give it its unique character. Pavie has been owned by members from two families since 1870 when Baron Le Roy bought this land for his son to make wine from grapes grown there each year as he took over running Chateau Lynch Bages where they lived nearby. The first vintage wasn’t bottled until 1911 under the label Pavie-Decesse and was considered a vin de garde – wines to lay down – with its high alcohol and tannins. The estate is described as the heart of St-Emilion, largely due to Pavie’s pivotal role in creating “classement” rankings for Bordeaux wine estates that are still used today. The property was elevated to the official level of Premier Grand Cru Classe A in 2012, and this is still its designation today.
