TASTING NOTES

"The 2017 Pavie Macquin is deep garnet-purple in color and opens with flamboyant notes of warm black and red plums, black cherries and tilled soil with delicate touches of cloves, star anise, red roses and forest floor. Medium-bodied with a firm backbone of very finely grained, very ripe tannins and tons of freshness, it has wonderfully elegant yet intense fruit layers and a long, minerally finish. Just beautiful." Lisa Perrotti-Brown Robert Parker's Wine Advocate #236

"Very solid center palate of fruit and firm, silky tannins. Linear and bright with a focused and pretty finish. Full-bodied, tight and precise. Very clear and bright." JamesSuckling.com

"A sexy, racy wine, the 2017 Pavie Macquin is full of personality. A rush of sweet red cherry, plum, rose petal, mint and blood orange infuses this sumptuous, racy Saint-Émilion. A wine of striking purity and total class, Pavie Macquin dazzles. As always, Pavie Macquin is marked by stunning fruit purity, red fruit, soft contours and silky, voluptuous tannins. In 2017, the blend has a bit more Cabernet Franc than in the past, now that younger vineyards have come online." Antonio Galloni, Vinous.com

"Deliciously engaging, with a pure, aromatic display of boysenberry and blackberry fruit running through, picking up light bramble and anise accents along the way. Fresh and nicely defined, showing plenty of crackle on the finish." Wine Spectator

"Very dark with black core. Lots of sweet and spicy oak on the nose. Dry, dark-fruited and powerful palate. It is far from approachable now but the fruit and the tannins are meshed and harmonious. Not a lot of flesh but the tannins are fine enough so that everything is in balance. Embryonic in the extreme but promising." Julia Harding MW, JancisRobinson.com
