Château Pavie has diverse terroirs. Terroir typical of the Saint Emilion limestone plateau composed of clay-limestone soil on an asteriated limestone subsoil. Located at an altitude of approximately 85 metres above the Dordogne River - Terroir called ?milieu de côte? (middle of the slope) located approximately 55 metres above the Dordogne and composed of very fine brown limestone.
Founded in 1843 by Joseph Krug, Krug is among most prestigious of all the Grands Marques. Although it makes two vintage-dated micro-cuvées (Clos du Mesnil, 100% Chardonnay; Clos D'Ambonnay, a Blancs de Noirs), Grande Cuvee, which is a multi-vintage blend, is clearly its flagship wine. Made only with wines from the greatest years, it includes no less than 50% of reserve wines from as many as 10 different vintages. In truth, it really doesn't get much better than this.
