Recently had the '95 Pavie and the '90 Pavie, both great wines made by the previous owner Jean Paul Valette. Haven't had the wine by Perse yet.
But M. Valette always made elegent wines. I think alot of the fuss is about Perse himself.
I'm curious now, too! Reminds me of what Oscar Wilde said, "The only thing worse than being talked about, is not being talked about."

Robinson takes Parker in cage match in the second round.

Interesting article as usual.

"Quickly, bring me a beaker of wine, so that I may wet my mind and say something clever" - Aristophanes
That was a great article on not only what's going on with Pavie (alone an interesting topic,) but also what's happening in St. Emilion right now.

I wish I had the time to write my thoughts on the matter, but suffice it to say that I wonder what bearing these two issues have had on the actual wine itself.
Top for anyone who may have missed this article. This was one of my first "lightbulb" Bordeaux wines. Despite the Soaps surrounding it, I hope it can be evaluated on its merits, and not influenced by personalities, egos etc.
Good article. As usual, words of wisdom from the true "God" of wine critics, Michael Broadbent. Now there is a wine palate.

Wine tastes better upside down.
