Château Pavie is a winery in Saint-Émilion in the Bordeaux region of France. It lies on the plateau to the southeast of St Emilion village. In 2012 it was classified in the first rank of the Classification of Saint-Émilion wine, as a Premier Grand Cru Classé (A), after having previously been a Premier Grand Cru Classé (B) since 1954.

Like other vineyards in Saint-Émilion such as Château Ausone, the Pavie vineyard dates back to Roman times. It takes its name from the orchards of peaches ("pavies") that used to stand there. The modern estate was assembled by Ferdinand Bouffard in the late 19th century by buying plots from several families. The plots were still managed separately, and the 9 hectares bought from the Pigasse family retained a separate identity as Château Pavie-Decesse.

The vineyard can be divided into three clearly-identified terroirs, namely the limestone plateau, the hillside and the foothills. This combination benefits from conditions that are extremely favourable to viticulture: naturally poor soil, excellent sunshine with its due southern exposure, natural drainage of the soil due to the slop, and the very little frost the vineyard receives due to the west wind.
