The 2015 Château Paveil de Luze is a deeply colored wine with impressive fruit, texture, and body. Ripe and generous, it displays plenty of blackberry and plum flavors infused with tobacco and Margaux’s pleasant distinctive earthiness. Backed by ripe substantial tannins, the 2015 Château Paveil de Luze is a wine to lay down in classic Margaux fashion as such patience yields big dividends.
Château Paveil de Luze enjoyed a long illustrious history in Bordeaux even before its 1862 purchase by Baron Alfred de Luze, who imparted his name to the historic property. Once one of the largest wine estates in Margaux at nearly 300 acres, Paveil de Luze, like many a top Bordeaux château, fell upon hard times in the 20th century. Some of its vineyards were sold off and the property languished.
