Reviews for 2005 Pavie-Macquin Bordeaux Blend

WS 96
Wine Spectator - Wine Spectator, March 2008
Black in color. Aromas of crushed berry chocolate and licorice follow through to a full body with a chewy velvety palate of ripe tannins. Long and very flavorful. A real mouthful. Best after 2015. 4165 cases made. -JS

96+ Inky bluish/purple in color, Pavie Macquin produced a prodigious effort from St.-Emilion in 2005. Its crushed, chalky rock minerality, massive body, and high tannin make for a wine to forget for another decade... 96+ Inky bluish/purple in color, Pavie Macquin produced a prodigious effort from St.-Emilion in 2005. Its crushed, chalky rock minerality, massive body, and high tannin make for a wine to forget for another decade. Super-loaded, concentrated and powerful, this wine should turn out great, but patience will be required. The blackberry and cassis fruit are there in abundance, but so is a massive structure. Anticipated maturity: 2020-2035. - Robert M. Parker, Jr.

Superripe perfumed nose dominated by griotte cherry raspberry and cocoa. Lush smooth and impressively concentrated with enough acidity and minerality to leaven the wine's almost port-like ripeness (the pH here always low is barely 3.55 in 2005 according to Nicolas Thienpont). Very deep flavors of sweet cherry and dark berries carry through on the mounting palate-saturating finish. A massive example of Pavie-Macquin whose thick coat of baby fat is currently making the wine hard to view. This one is going to require a minimum of a decade of patience.
