Esprit de Pavie comes from a great diversity of terroirs situated on the south-facing slopes of the Dordogne valley.

Winemaking:
Soil: Clay and limestone hills.
Harvest: The vines are worked with a minimum of chemical treatments. Green harvests are made, and a first leaf-thinning on the eastern side of the vines at the end of June is followed by a second thinning on the vines' western side towards mid-August.
Vinification: 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.

Tasting Notes:
Color: Intense violet color.
Nose: Spicy aromas of wood, black berries, licorice, chocolate and coffee.
Palate: Full and sumptuous on the palate, hints of fruits, with good intensity, long finish.

Food pairing: Beef, veal, game (deer, venison), poultry.
