Jeb Dunnuck: 91 Points

Based on 85% Cabernet Sauvignon and 15% Merlot, the 2018 Château Paveil De Luze offers a beautiful, classic Margaux complexity and elegance. Lots of black raspberry and cassis fruits as well as notes of sandalwood, dried flowers, truffle, and loamy soil emerge from the glass, and it's medium-bodied, with a layered, seamless texture and ripe, moderate tannins. It already offers pleasure, yet I see no reason it shouldn't evolve for 10-15 years. It's one heck of a delicious Cru Bourgeois!

Wine Spectator: 91 Points

Fine-grained, with crushed plum and cassis notes carried by a graphite note before extra black tea, tobacco and warm earth accents fill in on the finish. Latent length too. Nicely done. Best from 2022 through 2032. 34,000 cases made, 1,500 cases imported.

Wine Advocate: 88-90 Points

The deep garnet-purple colored 2018 Paveil de Luze gives up fragrant mint chocolate, red roses and cedar chest scents over a core of baked black cherries, warm cassis and preserved plums. Full-bodied with plenty of juicy black fruit, it has a plush texture and plenty of freshness, finishing perfumed.

Wine Enthusiast: 92 Points

Young but already elegant and complex, this wine is destined for long-term aging. Ripe blackberry fruits and serious tannins will take time to mature. Drink from 2025 when this wine will be in balance.
