From the producer: Les Pavots is our flagship blend, and the wine Sir Peter had in his mind’s eye when he started his search for a vineyard site in 1976. It is made from grapes grown in the vineyard of the same name on our home estate. While the blend varies from vintage to vintage, it is typically two-thirds Cabernet Sauvignon, with the remainder roughly equal parts Cabernet Franc and Merlot, and a final soupçon of Petit Verdot. We enjoy this refined Cabernet blend with its signature blueberry notes, hint of herbs de Provence and its wonderful expression of the full spectrum of red Bordeaux varietals. Deep ruby color with a red-purple rim, 2017 Les Pavots reveals abundant aromas of ripe black fruit and jammy black currant. The bouquet expresses nuances of vanilla bean, ‘garrigue’ and leather. Full-bodied and elegant on the palate, the wine offers generous, ripe, dried, red and black fruit flavors. The mouth feel is dense and round, with supple tannins and subtle mineral notes, loaded with blackberry, raspberry liqueur, fur and black pepper notes leading to a long finish. Approachable now, the wine provides a classic presentation of our estate’s terroir and will continue to age gracefully for two decades
