Esprit de Pavie, Bordeaux 2015
We pride ourselves on finding parcels of exceptional claret that we can all afford. It is a painstaking and laborious task laced with disappointment - but occasionally we find a show stopper that makes it all worthwhile. Esprit de Pavie 2015 is one of those - an opulent, sumptuous and intense high class claret from a great vintage. You should buy as much as you can afford.
Esprit de Pavie is a blend of wine from Château Pavie itself and Château Clos L'Église in the Côtes de Castillon that used to be one of our best-selling clarets that many of you may remember. Gerard Perse, the proprietor of Château Pavie discovered the château and was so impressed with the wine that he bought it as a worthy addition to the Pavie stable, and the perfect wine to blend with his younger vines at Pavie. It is now reaching full maturity with at least another 5-7 years at its peak - a gorgeous wine.
