Producer notes: Back in ancient times, this estate was known for its cultivation of fruit, and particularly the Pavia peach which would later become the namesake of the 19th-century château. Owned in those days by the Valette family, the château earned a Premier Grand Cru Classé B Saint-Emilion ranking in 1955. Since its purchase in 1997, the estate has gone from strength to strength. The 2012 reboot of the Saint-Emilion classification saw Pavie elevated to the status of Saint-Emilion Premier Grand Cru classé A. Pavie's vineyard is the most spread-out of all the Saint Emilion premiers crus, and also has the oldest vines in the appellation, some of which go back more than a century. The product of manual harvests and low yields (28-30 hl/ha), Pavie's wines are aged for up to 24 months in new oak barrels.
