Peter Michael Les Pavots 2006

SKU 09666


Almost black in color with a deep red edge, 2006 Les Pavots reveals a profound bouquet of black cherry, licorice, black currant, blueberry pie, and blackberry, combined with chocolate, vanilla, coffee, black tea, subtle spice notes of cloves and cinnamon and its distinctive touch of "garrigue." Very full-bodied, concentrated yet graceful, the wine confirms the same rich, ripe fruit impressions on the palate with spice and black truffle. The mouth feel is massive and round with silky tannins and hints of mocha leading to a very long finish. Will benefit from three years of cellaring and age gracefully for two decades or more.

Wine SpectatorSupple-textured and harmonious, with layers of ripe plum, currant, black licorice, cedar and cigar box that are evenly distributed. Rich and full-bodied without being heavy, this retains its focus and elegance, ending with a long, graceful finish and an espresso bean note. Cabernet Sauvignon, Cabernet Franc, Merlot and Petit Verdot. Best from 2010 through 2016.
