The second wine of this terrific château is the 2022 Aromes De Pavie, an even split of Merlot and Cabernet Sauvignon (the same blend as the 2020). It might be the greatest second wine in the vintage, displaying a classic Pavie style in its ripe red and black fruits as well as notes of camphor, chocolate, violets, and graphite. Rich and powerful, with medium to full-bodied richness, it's going to be ideal for drinking on release and over the following 15-20 years.

93-94 James Suckling -

A juicy and rich wine with medium chewy tannins and a medium body. Racy. Plenty of crunchy fruit and energy. 50% merlot and 50% cabernet franc.

93 Georgina Hindle - Decanter

Perfume and red summer berry fruits, aromatic and expressive. Plush and round but sharp and bright, this has a nice instant tang and shot of acidity that gives energy and life before the liquorice and flint tannins come into play. Feels nicely complete, if young and excitable. It’s serious but vibrant too. A touch too tannic but not harsh, more ripe and fleshy, but still with detail and definition and even though it’s massy you still get the mineral, flintiness with a lovely salty aftertaste. Charming and appealingly accessible. Ageing 50% new oak, 50% one year old barrels. Acidity 3.68. 3.74pH.

91-93 Lisa Perrotti-Brown - The Wine Independent

The 2022 Aromes de Pavie is composed of 50% Merlot and 50% Cabernet Franc with a pH of 3.74. Yields were 28 hl/ha. Deep garnet-purple in color, it prances out of the glass with showy scents of juicy black plums, black cherry compote, and kirsch, plus wafts of rose oil, chocolate mint, and tapenade. The full-bodied palate is firm and chewy, packed with black fruit preserves, finishing with a spicy kick.

93 Jane Anson - Inside Bordeaux

This is a well made wine with interest, and an impressive reflection of the terroir, carefuly made, can feel the construction and gentle extractions, showing a distinctive identity of loganberry, blackberry and oyster shell salinity. The most impressive of the Pavie range if you are looking to open a bottle within the next five to eight years. Harvest 22 September to 24. It remains 100% dedicated plots, none of the new additions (Pavie Decesse and Bellevue-Mondotte) are included here. Vines 50 years average age, 50% new oak.

90-92 Antonio Galloni - Vinous

The 2022 Arômes de Pavie is a blend of equal parts Merlot and Cabernet Franc. It is undoubtedly a serious wine that offers a striking mix of fruit depth and vibrancy, all framed by incisive tannins that need to soften. Élevage will be critical in determining where this ultimately goes.
