Pavie’s 2010 has been up-graded to a “perfect” 100-points by Robert Parker in the latest issue of The Wine Advocate.
Over half of the 49 Bordeaux wines given a “perfect” 100-point score by Robert Parker since 2000 are currently trading below £5,000 a case.
Liv-ex has released the results of its bi-annual classification of the Right Bank and found Pavie to not quite live up to its “A” status when it comes to price.
Almost 20 years old now the 1996s have climbed solidly in price but some have gone further on weaker laurels than those whose promise was noted at an early age.
Pavie emerged this morning and, as was expected, mirrored fellow Saint Emilion “A” Angelus in its pricing, while the “best value” wine of the year was also released.
A blind tasting of the Saint Emilion grands crus classés A across several vintages saw Angelus and Pavie lag behind fellow “A”s Cheval Blanc and Ausone, leading one critic to suggest they are “not on the same level”.
Saint Emilion estate, Pavie, has unveiled a silver label for its 2012 vintage to celebrate its elevation to grand cru classé A status in that same year.
The Bordeaux 2011s have received a boost since Robert Parker’s in-bottle scores, with trades in the vintage almost up to almost 20% of Bordeaux trading activity on Liv-ex this month.
The latest Cellar Watch Market Report brings more miserable news for the fine wine world as Liv-ex’s indices continued to slide in April following a torrid en primeur campaign.
Mouton Rothschild and Right Bank heavyweights Angélus and Pavie threw their combined backs behind the 2013 en primeurs this morning.
