Verygood and not decanted for more than 30 mins. No hard edges.

inky purple, full bodied, but surprisingly accessible after 30-40 minutes of decanter time. abounding with flavors of creme de cassis, black cherries and truffles, it is wonderfully textured and complex, with a huge finish. it is deserving of its blockbuster status from the experts.

Just yesterday I had a chance to enjoy a bottle with a few friends smoking cigars in the local den. I had the bottle opened for 1 hour before consuming it. Well, the wine is actually ready and quite matured to enjoy it at this age! This is not a blockbuster wine but has a deep but linear aroma and an immediate sense "what we call Bordeaux nose". It's smooth and tannin is fully integrated but i's not a multi-layered but rather a drinking table wine that has the best I have encountered alcohol level. Meaning, it's high but just at the right level giving a such crystal clear buzz! The finish is short but intense. It was probably a mistake to have it with cigars instead of a heavy meal! All my friends have given a high mark. At $100 this could be a best table wine of a top Bordeaux finesse that allows to pair it with a variety of spicy foods. I have had a full case of this 2004 but sold a half being forced to open up an original wooden case (my heart was bleeding). I think I will keep the rest for a such price to enjoy rather with food over the next few years that will make it only better.

It has a beatiful aroma and long finish. Could be consumed now or benefit from another 10 years of a controlled cellaring. The wine is a "victim" of its 2005 vintage that overshadows a real value but still scoring 95.

Very intense, dark purple color. The nose started developing after around three hours of decanting with vibrant dark berries, cherry and plum mixed with some smokiness, spices and roasted coffee. On the palate it was a pleasant interplay of all the aromas and in addition developed a nice chocolate taste as well. The finish was not a spectacular burst but rather a long lingering experience. This wine will be great for at least 20 years.

Cool; extremely deep cassis extract - this is very intense and seems like it will need a lot of age. The extreme density feels almost specious. There is also a funky reductive note, some terracotta, and strange incense. This note was made blind.

Ambitious, as always, w/ a waterfall of scents including BBQ spice, smoked game and cherry cordial liqueur brought immediate attraction to the wine. The palate is currently in a tight focus and very reserved, but copious amounts of sweet leather, fig and tobacco flavors can be discerned. The one hang-up is that the wine is currently showing its heat, most likely due to the palate not being as expressive as it eventually will be. Because of the track record Pavie has for showing irregularly post bottling, I am willing to bet dollars to doughnuts that the heat will dissipate and it will be a classic quality wine. I actually prefer to current potential of the 2004 to the 2003. Drink 2012-2030.

A flawed bottle may be affected by cork taint, heat (maderized), oxidation, or excessive sulfur. Additionally, some people consider wines tainted by Brettanomyces (Brett), a non-spore forming genus of yeast, a flaw although there is much controversy surrounding the subject.
