Critics’ scores 

The 2021 Pavie-Decesse received a barrel range of 90-92 points from Neal Martin (Vinous). He explained that 1.5 of the three hectares was replanted in 2019, and said that the wine ‘will be interesting to revisit once in bottle’. 

Antonio Galloni gave it a higher score of 91-94, noting that ‘Pavie-Decesse shows its trademark energy and virile intensity’. 

James Suckling awarded it 92-93 points, calling it ‘energetic’.  

Fair Value analysis 

As Liv-ex’s Fair Value methodology shows, many back vintages look better value in relation to today’s release. 

Its barrel range of 90-92 from Martin currently positions it as one of the lowest-scoringed vintages. The 94-point 2011 and 95-point 2019 with current Market Prices of £859 and £971 respectively stand out as offering better value. 

The 2020 vintage, while a little more expensive at £1,000 per case, also offers value in relation to the 2021’s release with its score of 95-points.
