WINE ADVOCATE 93 POINTS - "An amazing achievement in this vintage, although not at the level of the prodigious 2003, 2001, or 2000, the 2002 Pavie Decesse is a dense ruby/purple-colored, full-bodied wine revealing notes of dried herbs, fruitcake, licorice, black currants, and cherries. Textured, fleshy, and concentrated, this is one of the stars of the Right Bank in this challenging vintage. Its low acidity and plush style suggest enjoying it now and over the next 15+ years."

JEB DUNNUCK 93 POINTS - "This wine comes from a tiny vineyard located just above Pavie consisting of pure limestone soils. The wine is basically all merlot (there’s 10% Cabernet Franc) brought up in plenty of new oak, yet it never lacks for fruit. The 2002 is certainly in its drink window, with the more focused, firm style of the vintage balanced nicely by plenty of sweet black fruits as well as complex notes of truffle, cedar, and tobacco notes. It has good acidity and beautiful balance, and readers can safely drink this beauty anytime over the coming 10-15 years, and it will probably keep even longer."
