TASTING NOTES

"So much violet and lilac aromas to this with blackberry and blueberry character, too. Full-bodied and delivering limestone, chalk and lavender on the palate. Great structure, too. Needs four or five years to soften. Better in 2022." JamesSuckling.com

"One of the highlights of the vintage, the 2015 Pavie Macquin is positively stellar. A veritable explosion of super-ripe red cherry, rose petal and mocha makes a strong opening statement. Silky on the palate, with soft tannins and tons of sheer exoticism, the 2015 is stunningly beautiful. All of the signatures of the site are turned up to the maximum in this vivid, head-spinning wine from estate manager Nicolas Thienpont and his team. Don't miss it!" Antonio Galloni, Vinous.com

"Ripe, pure and expressive, with a beautiful panoply of loganberry, plum and red currant preserve flavors that meld seamlessly with anise and singed apple wood details and a subtle chalky spine. A bright floral accent on the finish lifts this up a register and lets it sail on, holding that note. Best from 2020 through 2040. 4,583 cases made." Wine Spectator

"The 2015 Pavie Macquin offers tempting scents of raspberry preserve, black truffle and smoke on the nose, later becoming floral and very well defined. The palate is medium-bodied with a fresh opening, lithe and supple, finely tuned acidity with a citrus-fresh, slightly piquant finish that is brimming over with tension that is needed because there is a lot of sweetness locked up in this Pavie Macquin. It will need 4 or 5 years in bottle. Anticipated maturity: 2022 - 2042." Neal Martin

"Mid crimson. Beautifully fragrant with both red and dark fruit. Tastes very sweet on the palate, as if there were actually some residual sugar? Chewy texture and fruit and structure not fully integrated. The sweetness shows on the finish as it seems to clash with the acidity. Maybe it just needs more time than most."
