Les Pavots

Peter Michael Winery, Les Pavots, 1997

RRP £220

One of the finest wines of the day. Disclaimer: it’s owned by our host. It comes from Sir Peter Michael’s lovely Knights Valley winery (he also owns the Vineyard Group) which has long had a stellar reputation. After a couple of decades this Bordeaux blend has a fresh hay nose with hints of redcurrant and rocky minerality. Superb fresh and delicate dark fruit, hedgerow, graphite, fine grained tannic finish, persistent and delicate until the wash of juice at the end. It just gets better and better.
