Already the owner of the renowned Pavie, Pavie-Decesse, Monbousquet and Bellevue-Mondotte estates, Gérard Perse has now created "Esprit de Pavie", bearing the Bordeaux appellation.
Esprit de Pavie comes from a great diversity of terroirs situated on the south-facing slopes of the Dordogne valley, which can be characterized by three types of soil:
- sandy-gravely foothills
- clay hillsides
- clay limestone plateau
Alcoholic fermentation begins naturally in temperature-controlled tanks. After several weeks of vatting, malolactic fermentation is made in tank. The wines are aged during 15 months in barrels which have already been used once for Château Pavie and Château Monbousquet.
- 65% de Merlot qui apporte souplesse et rondeur
- 20% de Cabernet Franc qui donne toute la structure au vin
- 15% de Cabernet Sauvignon qui donne la profondeur, la race
Esprit de Pavie enjoys the same care and attention in winemaking as its illustrious siblings to ensure each bottle's high level quality.
The wine is packaged in a luxurious six-bottle flat presentation case.
