2020 Château Paveil de Luze  (Margaux) 92

Coffee bean, licorice, bitter cocoa, plums and blackberries crowd the nose. Medium-bodied, soft, elegant and refined, with a forward character. You can enjoy this on the young side due to all its sweet fruits and silky tannins. Or you can age it for 3-5 years and it will be even better. 91-93 Pts

2019 Château Paveil de Luze  (Margaux) 91

With good color, the wine is medium-bodied and already showing off its nose of espresso, earth, smoke, spice and red fruits. On the palate, one finds soft, silky, fresh, juicy fruits, oak, blackberries and lift. The wine is long, fresh and clean in the red berry and herb filled endnote. 90-92 Pts

2018 Château Paveil de Luze  (Margaux) 91

Espresso, toffee, red fruits, flowers and spice open up the nose. On the palate, the earthy fruits and tobacco come along quickly. Medium-bodied with sweetness and a firm quality to the ]tannins dictate 3-5 years of cellaring before you should start to enjoy it. 91 Points

Floral in nature, the earthy fruits and tobacco come along quickly. Medium-bodied with a nice sweetness to the fruit and softness in the texture, this has a lot of charm. Give it 3-5 years before popping a cork. 90-92 Pts

2015 Château Paveil de Luze  (Margaux) 90

Earthy, floral, fresh and forward, this soft textured, medium-bodied, red berry and red plum filled wine, with its hint of thyme, flowers, espresso and sweet fruit seems like its ready to go. But give it another year or 3, and it will show even better. 90 Points

With a floral, earth and plum-filled nose with a licorice and tobacco kick at the end, this wine has just enough fresh, dark, red fruits that transpire just when you need them. 89 - 91 Pts

2010 Château Paveil de Luze  (Margaux) 90

Another winner from Stephane Derenoncourt and his team. From a minor terroir in Margaux, the wine delivers ripe dark berries, truffle and floral notes with hints of espresso and licorice. Silky smooth tannins, an open accessible style and a ripe, fruit filled finish make this a wine to look for. 90 Points

2009 Château Paveil de Luze  (Margaux) 89

Deep color, soft tannins, floral, earthy, blackberry aromas, round textures, ripe fruit and it's early drinking too. Plus, it's fairly priced for a wine from the Margaux appellation. The wine was produced from a blend of 70% Cabernet Sauvignon and 30% Merlot. 89 Points

2005 Château Paveil de Luze  (Margaux) 89

Fully mature, medium bodied, fresh, floral, tobacco laden wine, with sweet, bright cherries, damp earth and soft textures for current drinking. This vintage marked the first year where the estate started making nice, reasonably, well priced wine. However, this is not a wine for further aging. I'd drink over the next 2-5 years. 89 Points

2000 Château Paveil de Luze  (Margaux) 85

Simple, straight forward, foursquare, acceptable, earthy, not quite lean, medium-bodied wine, focused more on its secondary character, as the fruit has started to gently fade. 85 Points

1919 Château Paveil de Luze  (Margaux) 82

Surprisingly interesting and fun to drink, especially when you consider its age and the vintage, the wine is brick with some oranging around the edge in color. Lots of earth, cedar and tobacco, with a little, sweet, spicy and tart red fruit that is managing to still be kicking around. 82 Points
