Reviews For This Wine


 
International Wine Cellar | 92

(84% merlot, 14% cabernet franc and 2% cabernet sauvignon): Ruby-red. Superripe, high-toned aromas of dark chocolate, minerals and chalk; a bit port-like. Then supersweet in the mouth, with a distinctly exotic aspect to the dark fruit and mineral flavors. Finishes with substantial ripe tannins and a slight youthful aggressiveness. I expected more restraint and verve for this normally low-pH wine from a late-ripening site on the plateau east of the village, but fans of exotically ripe merlot will love this.

Wine Advocate | 92+

The 2009 is enormous in size, yet broodingly backward, I was somewhat surprised by the astringency of the tannins in this blend of 85% Merlot, 14% Cabernet Franc and 1% Cabernet Sauvignon. It is a big wine (14.5% alcohol), black purple in color, with huge concentration of fruit and beautiful purity, but a good decade of cellaring is required. From a top terroir, this wine is built for the long haul, and I am sure it will be even better than its relatively conservative rating at this point.

Hyperlush, with very creamy fig, blackberry and boysenberry flavors that stay well-defined, as charred apple wood, black tea and singed vanilla bean notes stride in behind. The long, authoritative finish drips with fruit and toasted spice, offering grip for balance. Very impressive.

About This Producer


Pavie-Macquin is a bio-dynamically farmed estate with a wealth of old vines from which to source fruit. Consequently, the wines are manifestations of incredible intensity and concentration balanced by an abundance of fruit purity, mineral and a healthy grip. The Macquin name comes from Albert Macquin, who in his time was an authority on the grafting European vines onto American rootstock after the phylloxera tragedy of the late 1800s. The current decade has brought Pavie-Macquin a dramatic surge in quality due to the expert intervention of Nicolas Thienpont (Vieux Chateau Certan), Michel Rolland and Stephane Derenoncourt. In the 2006 reclassification of St Emilion, it was promoted to the level of Premier Grand Cru Classe.
