A blend of 70% Merlot, 25% Cabernet Franc, and 5% Cabernet Sauvignon, from a cool limestone terroir on the plateau, the 2005 Château Pavie Macquin is extraordinary juice, and the finest vintage of this cuvee I’ve ever...   A blend of 70% Merlot, 25% Cabernet Franc, and 5% Cabernet Sauvignon, from a cool limestone terroir on the plateau, the 2005 Château Pavie Macquin is extraordinary juice, and the finest vintage of this cuvee I’ve ever tasted. Sporting a saturated purple color as well as an off the hook bouquet of crème de cassis, blackberries, smoked earth, chocolate, and Asian spices, with a sensational sense of minerality developing with time in the glass. Deep, full-bodied, massively concentrated, and multi-dimensional, it’s just now at the early stages of its drinking plateau and it will probably keep for another 2-3 decades. Count yourself lucky if you have bottles of this in the cellar!

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

Robert Parker's Wine Advocate, June 2015
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.

The 2005 Pavie Macquin opens with a burst of sweet red cherry/red plum fruit. Cedar, sweet pipe tobacco, mint, spicecake and dried flowers add layers of nuance. Even with all of its luscious fruit, the tannins remain...   The 2005 Pavie Macquin opens with a burst of sweet red cherry/red plum fruit. Cedar, sweet pipe tobacco, mint, spicecake and dried flowers add layers of nuance. Even with all of its luscious fruit, the tannins remain pretty imposing. The 2005 needs a good bit of aeration to be at its best. I don't find 2005 to be an especially distinguished vintage for Pavie Macquin. -- Antonio Galloni
