Château Pavie Decesse

Domain: Château Pavie Decesse

The story of Château Pavie-Decesseis is intimately linked with that of Château Pavie, where the origin of viniculture goes back to the 4th century. Château Pavie-Decesse was also an integral part of this legendary château up to the end of the 19th century. At that time, Ferdinand Bouffard, owner of Pavie since 1885, decided to form an autonomous vineyard by gathering together some of the plots which he then called Pavie-Decesse. After World War 1, Mr Marzelle purchased the château which would become a Grand Cru Classé in 1954. Then, in 1970, upon the demise of Mr Marzelle, the Valette family - already owners of Château Pavie -, took up the running of Château Pavie-Decesse, which it purchased in 1990. Gérard Perse took possession of Château Pavie-Decesse in 1997, one year before purchasing Château Pavie. In 2002, one part of the Pavie-Decesse vineyard was reintegrated with that of Château Pavie, and Pavie Decesse thus saw its plot size drop from 9.5 to 3.5 hectares, located entirely on the limestone plateau of Saint-Emilion. Vinified with the same care as its big brother, this estate is part of the leading group of the Grands Crus Classé of Saint-Emilion, producing wines which are rich, full-bodied and fleshy, endowed with a lovely tannic structure and perfect for laying down for aging. Wine in this estate is aged in new oak barrels
