The 2010 Les Pavots (3,000 cases produced) is composed of 67% Cabernet Sauvignon, 17% Cabernet Franc, 14% Merlot and 2% Petit Verdot. More backward and firmer than the 2009, it exhibits copious notes of chocolate fudge, creme de cassis, blackberry liqueur, graphite and licorice as well as stunning concentration, full body, perfect balance and a massive personality. Still unevolved, it will benefit from several more years of bottle age, and should keep for three decades.

Dark purple. Heady, floral-accented aromas of dark berry preserves, vanilla, mocha and black truffle, with a smoky overtone. Sappy, palate-staining blackberry and cassis flavors are lifted and braced by zesty mineral and spice notes and show excellent clarity. Becomes sweeter with air and finishes with superb energy, focus and persistence, with just a whisper of dusty tannins.

The 2010 Les Pavots is a huge, dark wine. Blackberry jam, mocha, chocolate, espresso, savory herbs and new leather all positively explode from the glass. Initially quite exciting, the 2010 loses some of its depth through the mid-palate and finish. Overall, this is a solid showing from the Pavots in a vintage that was far from easy. The blend is 67% Cabernet Sauvignon, 17% Cabernet Franc, 14% Merlot and 2% Petit Verdot. Anticipated maturity: 2015–2025.
