This Château Pavie Macquin offers a sophisticated mineral taste with a brightness and fresh intensity. This Saint-Emilionis characterized by a perfect black fruit aroma such as blackberry and blackcurrant. In the mouth, the tannins are genuine, they present finesse and spice. This wine is powerful and restraint in the end with a long fruity finish. Thanks to a particular and dedicated vinification this wine will be excellent to face the time and age gracefully.

Wine Advocate-Parker : The 2014 Pavie-Macquin has a concentrated bouquet with layers of blackberry and raspberry coulis, infused with potpourri and incense. There is something almost forbidding about the aromatics at the moment. The palate is medium-bodied with supple ripe red berry fruit, a fine line of acidity, although it feels a little soft on the finish when I needed more precision and backbone. Let's see how this ages in bottle, because I suspect that it will gain more density and structure with 2-3 years of bottle age.
